Yes: A lot of doctors will put patients on birth control pill when IUD is causing a lot of bleeding. If you are using the copper IUD then you may want to consider switching to Mirena (levonorgestrel) as Mirena (levonorgestrel) has some progesterone which can help with heavy bleeding. Talk to your doctor about options.
