Varies: After placing an iud the time for bleeding can vary substantially. First, bleeding from the Mirena (levonorgestrel) can last for several months. It is unusual for it to be of any significant concern other than the frustration. After placing a paragard, the other iud on the market, the bleeding is typically slowed fairly quickly within a day or two. It is common to have regular periods, though heavier.
