    FINALLY!

    Advertisements
    [Got this dang IUD out!!!]

    After bleeding for an additional 6 weeks after the 5 weeks of post partum bleeding I finally went and got my IUD out.

    Now hopefully I stop bleeding!!

    Anyone else have a problem with their IUD?

    I'm thinking about getting mine taken out. I seem to bleed for a week AFTER my regular period. So I'm bleeding for about half of the month. Definitely not worth it.

    I'm on my second IUD... got one after DS1 and one after DS2. After DS1, I spotted for a couple of days and had a very light period about every 3-4 months. After DS2, I bled lightly for about 6 weeks, but my midwife had told me in advance that it was normal. It stopped a few weeks ago... no period yet. I love IUDs, but they're not for everyone.

    I bled for a total of 3ish months including pp bleeding. It finally stopped and i've only had one period.

    The only side effect I'm noticing is paranoia over being pregnant

    I didn't have a single period whil having my IUD in. It was fine UNTIL DH came home and started..and then it was painful to have sex because I could feel it being hit. I went to get it taken out and the doctor said it was still in correct placement..so back to the pill I went

    My friend bled for 6 months before getting hers taken out, but it wasn't because of the IUD, it was because of an underlying health condition. From what I understand, bleeding is pretty "normal" with the IUD and can continue for at least 12 weeks.
