IUD check: Depending on the type of IUD bleeding patterns can vary. If this is different period than your usual bleeding I recommend scheduling a visit to have the doctor confirm that your IUD is in the proper location. Since you are seeing some white discharge yeast and other infection testing can be done at that time.
