IUD: Did you have the copper iud? If so, this is likely your normal period. When women have Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, often their periods get lighter with the iud. With the copper iud, periods often get heavier on the iud. It may be that your cycle has just gotten shorter, but it hasn't been enough time to really judge what the long term trend is going to be. I wouldn't be worried unless you stop having period.
