Common Questions and Answers about Bleeding between periods with iud

Avatar n tn Would they be able to spot that by doing the pap? I mean he said everything looked normal...or could it be inside the cervix and that's why it doesn't present itself? I will be asking before I make the appointment if I get the IUD, but just wondering.
Avatar n tn While the most commonly used IUD is the copper IUD, it may indeed increase menstrual bleeding or cramps as well as spotting between periods. If these symptoms persist, it is best that you inform your doctor about this for proper management and to rule out possible infection, gynecological issues or bleeding condition present. Further evaluation may need to be done.
187316 tn?1386356682 I have the paraguard copper iud and have had it for 5 months now. Every month my period comes like clockwork. I don't spot or bled in between periods and when I get my period it is extremely heavy (a known side effect from the iud). This month things have been a little bit weird though. I spotted maybe a quarter amount of red blood about a week and a half ago. The spotting only lasted for a couple minutes and then disappeared as mysteriously as it came.
Avatar n tn i had my iud inserted in april of 09 and i bled for 3 months straight and then had my periods for 2 weeks every month.... now its been 2 months since i had a period....
Avatar f tn Hi, I have a complicated question about post-sex bleeding. For some background, I have a Paragard IUD, inserted 1.5 years ago after giving birth. I like the convenience of the IUD, but it hasn't all been smooth. My periods have been much heavier, more painful and seemingly more frequent since getting it. I have also noticed what seems to be swelling and tenderness internally after sex with my husband, frequent dryness and difficulty properly inserting tampons.
Avatar f tn Madam, I got married in 2004 and was blessed with a girl child in April '05. On the advice of a gynaec doctor I started using oral contraceptives (Mala-D) from April '06 on the assurance of the doctor that they are 100% safe. Everything was normal. For the last 6 months I observed a gradual decrease in bleeding during periods. Atlast when 15th June '09 was my actual due date, I did not get my periods till month end.
Avatar f tn There was a recent discussion about the Mirena IUD but I am curious if anyone has any experience with the HORMONE FREE PARAGUARD IUD? I am interested in getting one after baby is here. Id like to know about anyones experiences! Please don't comment about the Mirena, unless you have tried both, because I am really looking for hormone free birth control and I know other than condoms this is the only thing out there.
Avatar n tn Alot of people have come to me and said thay have iregular periods, or they dont get them at all.... I constantly stress wishing i was the 1 with no periods (haha) But im qite the opposite, I have been bleeding 4 just ova a year now, ive tryed so many things the gyno has suggested and even had opperations all results came back normal, and yet nothing at all seems to work, I have the marina IUD in now and still bleeding. Im only 19 and very scared this will affect my future in having children.
Avatar f tn The effect of an IUD on you body is harsh my cousin had one and had her periods for 20 months with only a week in between each. So everyone is different. The effects you could be feeling could be you body rejecting it. If you are pregnant more than likely they will take the IUD out.
Avatar f tn Changes in menstrual bleeding are common. Women may have bleeding and spotting between periods, especially during the first few months. Sometimes the bleeding is heavier than usual, however, the bleeding usually becomes lighter than usual and may become irregular. Mirena makes the lining of the uterus thin, and this thinning causes lighter periods. Twenty percent of women completely stop having periods after using Mirena for a year.
Avatar n tn Is it normal to have missed periods with the 5-Year Mirena IUD? I have only had it in for 5 Months and have been regular until now im about two weeks late. also what are the chances with getting pregnant while using them? does anyone have any info?
Avatar f tn If it turned out not to be a bleeding disorder/coagulopathy, my next step would be to consider a Mirena IUD. These can work wonderfully to reduce bleeding or sometimes even stop bleeding altogether. Lupron might be another option, because some of your symptoms ( pain ) are suspicious for endometriosis. Well, at least here are some things to consider--hope it helps!
Avatar f tn Yeah, that's what he gave me. It didn't do anything weird to me at all. You still need to go though because you could be anemic. You can always tell him/her that you'll just deal with the periods and don't want the medicine, you just want to make sure that everything's okay. Oh, and I didn't even have to go in and pay a co-payment.
514428 tn?1287598456 There is no need to test at all with an IUD in place. You will get, as many women do, a rise in BBT and then a drop when your period is here. My advice is don't make yourself more nervous and use BBT when an IUD is in place. It is meaningless. Depending on the type of IUD you have in place, you may get little to no periods, anyway. If you are concerned, you can take a pregnancy test once a month, just to assure your own peace of mind, but that really isn't necessary, either.
Avatar n tn t fit so they had to stretch my uterus. Before my IUD I always had light periods with no cramping. While I had my IUD I never had a period (because I had the Mirena) but I had AWFUL cramps. I know the copper one is supposed to make it worse too so I am sure the no kids, bad periods and the copper IUD might be a painful combination. I had to have my IUD removed about six months after getting it because it punctured my uterus, that was PAINFUL!!
996919 tn?1249892926 All along i was bleeding ( i figured i was just on my period, after all i did have an IUD in) i continued bleeding until Aug. 5th. (today is the 7th) I thought my period was over because i didn't bleed at all on the 5th.but i did have spotting the 6th & 7th. Heres my question(s) 1-When did i become pregnant? 2- When did i have my miscarriage? 3- After being in the mindset that i was pregnant, I want to try for another one, how soon can i get pregnant?
Avatar f tn All of the information I can find on periods after IUD removal tell of missed periods or heavy periods etc and mainly concentrate around people who have had their IUD removed in order to get pregnant, which is not the case with me. I am wondering if all this 'normalcy' is normal ?
Avatar f tn I had periods every month that lasted 3-4 days no heavy bleeding or cramping. My periods were the same as they were prior to the Paragard basically. I would get again but my hubby is getting the big snip so I don't have to.
Avatar n tn Hello, A detailed medical evaluation may be extremely necessary for correct diagnosis and treatment of your condition. The commonest cause of bleeding between periods or after intercourse is hormonal imbalance. The two hormones regulating a woman’s cycle are estrogen and progesterone. If they get out of balance, one may have spotting.
504000 tn?1242500793 i do not feel like myself since i had my IUD insterted i have also been bleeding prd like for about a week...dr says anything is possible at this point. Can anyone fill me in im very nervous, i just feel like something just isnt right. oh i had my baby a little over 2 months ago so i know my body is still adjusting.
Avatar f tn I been TTC but dont know when im ovulating with all these iregular bleeding.....does any one know what could be causing my iregular bleeding????
Avatar n tn if your not using condoms is it still slightly possible for you to be pregnant again and it sounds like you have had irregular periods before the iud being that you had been getting your periods only 2 to 3 times a year. maybe your body just went back it that?
