Or to GYN office ...: The fact that you stopped bleeding but have restarted and it is quite heavy is concerning. It will very likely need an intervention to stop the bleeding so go to your GYN's office (the one who removed the IUD, if possible) TODAY, or to the ER. The IUD may have been more deeply embedded into the wall of the uterus and/or taking the IUD out caused trauma. You need to be seen today! Good wishes!
