Hi, I'm in need of some advice,so I've been on

Patient

Q: Hi,
I'm in need of some advice,so I've been on birth control for about two years now. Had it implanted after the birth of my second baby. Two and a half weeks after my last period, I started experiencing small amounts of brown spotting and severe cramps. Attributed it to iud Skyla birth control. About a week or so afterward started having symptoms I had during both of my previous pregnancies(moodiness, tender breasts, frequent headaches, dizziness, nausea). Thought I'd ride it out before I jumped to conclusions, now I'm 5 days late for my period, still with all of the same symptoms. Mind you my cycle comes like clockwork. Took one test tonight which came out negative. So confused.. What could be the reason for this? Is this normal with IUDs?
