Not unusual: It is not abnormal to have some irregular bleeding on the mierna iud. Overall bleeding should be decreased. Bleeding after intercourse is probably related to irregular iud bleeding but, if persistent after intercourse, especially if associated with pain, see a doc. Overall i would say you have noyhing to worry about; good luck, merry christmas.
