I removed my IUD in may and I been bleeding since is it normal and how long does it take to get pregnant.

Not normal: Did you have the IUD removed or did you personally find the string and pull it out? Either way, a MD exam may be needed to be sure that the cervix was not injured in the removal process. Once that issue is resolved then pregnancy can be attempted with a usual pregnancy rate of 85% in one year of unprotected intercourse assuming no male or female reproductive issues at your age. ...Read more

I just had an abortion last Thursday after I got an IUD will that cause me to bleed longer I'm having severe cramps and want to remove should I??

Leave it if you can: An IUD can make the next 2-3 cycles more uncomfortable and cause more bleeding. The post-operative period after an abortion is uncomfortable. Start taking ibuprofen or Naproxen for the next 24-48 hours as the directions state on the box. That should help. ...Read more

I got the copper IUD implanted on monday. I'm still a little crampy and bleeding a little. How long should this last?

IUD: Everyone is different, and while some may have complete comfort and tolerance of their iud immediately, a small number never tolerate it and have to get it out. It's a matter of whether you are willing to stick with the discomfort and for how long. A couple of weeks time seems more than reasonable to try. ...Read more

I feel IUD strings outside my body....What should I do? So october my period was 23 days late.. Then nov 2nd i started bleeding very bright red with a few clots... I didn't think anything of it. And now when i feel for my IUD the strings are way longer th

If : If you think the string is longer and that the iud may be coming out - then you need to call your ob/gyne right away. Sometimes this just happens. Do not try to re-position the iud yourself. Make sure you use a back-up form of birth control until your iud has been checked. Below i attached a web site with lots of helpful iud information. Good luck! ...Read more

My IUD is stuck in my uterus and im wondering if I should wait until th 17th of january for them to try to remove it again since they tried on thursday I have been having pelvic pain and been bleeding pretty heavy. What are the risks if i wait that long?

My IUD is stuck in my uterus and im wondering if I should wait until th 17th of january for them to try to remove it again since they tried on thursday I have been having pelvic pain and been bleeding pretty heavy.
What are the risks if i wait that long?

There : There isn't any risk of waiting to have it removed. The only question is "can you handle the pain/cramping for the next 3 weeks?" if the bleeding doesn't slow down and you start feeling dizzy or lightheaded you may need to have your blood checked to see if you're anemic. Some doctors will attempt removal in the office after injecting the cervical area to lessen the pain. Others will take you to the operating room for removal. The copper style iud is known to be problematic during removal. ...Read more

Both : Both the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud and the ius are the same type of device; a long-acting hormone device placed in the uterus. The effectiveness is for 5 years. Having initial pain and bleeding is normal. The first weeks are painful and the patient usually needs initially a stronger pain medication and then milder medication such as ibuprofen. Irregular bleeding usually occurs for 2-2 months and then the patient usually has little to no bleeding for 5 years. Risks of the device include expulsion (the device coming out, which is rare), or infection. Most women do not have weight gain. ...Read more

IUD bleeding: An IUD inserted into the womb may be pushed down into the narrow canal through which it is placed for insertion. This may happen secondary to contractions of the womb rarely, which irritates the lining of the canal, causing bleeding. See your healthcare provider to see if the IUD is still in the proper location. ...Read more

Why am i getting vanishing IUD and bleeding?

Not good - need dr.: If you iud has 'vanished' you need to have some imaging done (sonogram to evaluate the uterus/ovaries, and look for the iud in the uterus) and maybe ct scan to see if the iud has perforated through the uterine wall, into the abdominal cavity. Need to be checked for pregnancy as well. This problem definitely needs a visit with the gyn. ...Read more
