May be!: you want to see your doctor for assessment, whether or not the IUD need to be removed, is left to the doctor after evaluation, best wishes

Contraception: The first solution may be the best answer. I would want for another period before considering removal. IUD's are better tolerated by women who have children. Otherwise, contraceptive pills offer the best protection and may be considered, so long as you are not over 35 and are a non-smoker.
