Common Questions and Answers about Bleeding between periods with iud

period

Avatar n tn had a pap, which is good since its been 5 years since my last one, and talked about getting an IUD again; had Mirena perviously and took it out...happy to get it again as I never had periods with it the last time; just have to wait till I get my period again to have it inserted. Told me I'll get results back within a week. I called my husband after my appointment and he said he was afraid I was pregnant (we don't use contraception) and then he gave me a panic attack!
4926212 tn?1361203474 The commonest cause is pregnancy with impending miscarriage. Few other conditions causing spotting between periods are endometriosis, STDs, cervical, uterine or ovarian cancers and ovarian cysts. Any vaginal bleeding other than your periods should be evaluated. Consult your gynecologist for more details. You may need pregnancy test, pelvic scan and pap smear. Keep me posted. Best wishes and take care!
Avatar n tn However, I have not had a period in 2 months now. I know it's normal for some people with an IUD to stop menstrating all togeather, until IUD is out...Should I be worried about pregnancy?? What's my chances??Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.
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 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.
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 n tn Then had 2 m/c's in a row, can't help but think there was a connection between messing with my hormones with the IUD or the lining and those m/c's--had had 2 pregnancies no problems before. I could never find studies either that linked IUD with post-IUD success at carrying pregnancies--don't think they want to know. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I got pregnant with the mirena iud after 1 year, guess was I was 7/8 weeks and we removed it 3 days later I lost the baby. I hope your baby stays put and you carry to term. The woman who cuts my hair got pregnant on it 3 years ago and was able to carry her daughter to term with the mirena still in place.
Avatar n tn She has broken up with me, slept with another man, got back together with me, broke up with me again etc. We did not have any of those sorts of troubles at all in our 7 year relationship and 5 year marriage. While she was on the IUD we celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary happily. Just a few short weeks later she wanted to end it, and then a few short weeks later we were together again and a few short weeks after that she wanted to end it again.
Avatar n tn For the last 6-8 months or so, I've had bleeding/spotting/cramps in between periods. It's very annoying, since I feel like I'm dealing with a light period on days when I should be free of all that hassle! Anyone had similar side effects with the paraguard?
Avatar n tn Hi there, Mirena can cause A few side effects like discomfort, abdominal pain and irregular periods. There may also be bleeding and spotting between menstrual periods during the first 3 to 6 months. There may be expulsion of Mirena which may cause bleeding, pain and an increase in menstrual flow. You have already started birth control pills so you are adequately protected against pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I missed a period and went to the doctors who told me I wasn't pregnant and was sent for an ultra sound to make sure the IUD was still in the right position. Results came back fine. Now mths later I am experiencing bleeding between my periods. Its crazy! I have read some things on the the copper IUD and have found alot of woman say that after having this put in that sometimes the body rejects it and causes problems.
Avatar f tn Had mine inserted 2009. Use to have regular periods with bad headaches. Migraine like. So now 2 years later.... Bleeding irregular, recently bright red that ruins all my clothes, because it is never expected. Sting pains in side. Also my husband moans that it hurts him. Hey ho mirena ruined my sex life, my marriage and my clothing! Subsequently budget also ruined. BUT migraine has not returned!!! Only light headache that I now blame on stress related to husbands grumpiness towards sexlife!
Avatar f tn Bleeding in between periods can happen as you adjust to a new birth control, but to me, this sounds like a bigger issue then that- since you are on the third pack and you had the same issue with another hormonal birth control option. Have you called your doctor to let them know the abnormal bleeding is still going on? There are other non-hormonal options or light hormone options that you and your doctor could discuss trying instead- to see if that helps.
Avatar f tn Also, I have had to urinate more urgently and experience some clear discharge between periods. I have considered removing the IUD, but I've hesitated because other birth control options don't seem that great. Here's where my question gets complicated: after more than a decade of being monogamous with my husband, I recently cheated with another man (please, no lectures) and made the completely idiotic and irresponsible decision to have unprotected sex with him twice.
Avatar n tn IUD's can also cause ectopic pregnancies and sometimes infection - infection can lead to PID, pelvic inflammatory disease, which can cause infertility if left untreated. There are other side effects you might want to consider too, such as spotting between periods, heavier bleeding... Google it and have a look.
296076 tn?1371338074 Mirena- has hormones and only last for 5 years, most people have less bleeding or no period Copper- has no hormones, lasts for 10 years and most people have more bleeding during periods. I have the Mirena and have no complaints. I love not having to think about my birth control except check for the strings once a month.
Avatar n tn I had a Mirena IUD inserted almost three years ago as a birth control method but also because I had uterine fibroids with uncontrolled bleeding. I have never had a problem with it at all. In fact, it has changed my life. My periods are nearly non-existant (which for me is good when you compare that to uncontrolled bleeding) and I haven't worried about birth control in years. Only once has a partner claimed they could feel the strings.
Avatar n tn This is a great way to know that it is where it should be. Heavier periods are normal with this IUD. Mine are very heavy also. IMO, this is a "side effect" that is very easy to deal with instead of dealing with artificial hormones to control my cycle. I love that I still ovulate and have a regular, normal, hormone free cycle. What other side effects do you have?
145992 tn?1341348674 I know the Mirena can make your periods light or non existent but as a rule periods are heavier with the copper IUD. You got lucky!
Avatar n tn I did have an eptopic due to my iud...i really dont think i have ever had pain worse than what i felt with that. I would definately get a second opinion especially if your cramping is unbearable. I felt faint and was so sick with my eptopic. Again this is just based on my personal experience.
Avatar f tn There is something with the IUD (the Mirena and the Paraguard IUD). I've been in a monogamous relationship with my husband for about 7 years. 3 years ago after I have my son, I decided to put the Mirena, I started having some itching and burning pain. I could take it anymore and I removed it then I got pregnant with my daughter. A few months after I have my daughter I decided to use the paraguard IUD (the one for 10 years). It was worst than the Mirena.
Avatar n tn I was warned about possible massive cramping, extended periods along with heavy bleeding. I was worried for a while after I bled nearly every time after sex {lasted anywhere from days to weeks}. It only lasted two months before that phase ended. I've still not actually had a normal period. But i'm getting on track. What's even better is I have managed to get NO cramps throughout the whole time {including during my period}.
Avatar n tn Especially if you had an IUD with no hormones , just the physical IUD. It prevents implantation NOT fertilization so you actually keep ovulating like normal. The ones with hormones get to where they repress ovulation (like the Mirena one) so that might take a month or two to re-establish. I went from late OCt (removal) to Jan (preg) with the Mirena removed.
187316 tn?1386360282 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 m tn IUD expulsion is indeed possible during the first few months of IUD and this is more likely if it is inserted right after childbirth or in a woman who has not carried a pregnancy. Unlike hormonal IUD, copper IUD may increase menstrual bleeding or cramps and experience spotting between periods.
