Any risk of paraguard IUD for people with autoimmune disease? Increase for blood clots? Greater risk for perforation? Copper make SVT worse?

Depends: Women with Autoimmune diseases can get the paragard IUD in most circumstances. If the autoimmune disease causes you to get frequent infections, an IUD might not be the best choice.

What are the multiple causes of or for pain&bleeding during sex, & passing blood clots after sex??

Cervix /uterus prob: I am worried that if these symptoms are mostly after sex, they may be due to an infection, polyp, or other abnormal area on the cervix or lower uterus. Have you had any treatments there. You need a pregnancy test and some basic cultures at least. The problem may be something like a polyp and easy to take care of. But your doc also needs to do some tests to be sure not anything cancerous.. ...Read more

It can take 3 months to regulate so be patient. Make sure your not anemic as well. ...Read more

When im on a period I pass atleast 12 large blood clots?

Not normal: Passing a lot of blood clots while you are on your period isn't normal. I would definitely recommend you see a gynecologist and discuss this. Could be due to hormonal issues, thyroid problems, weight issues (thin/heavy). But that seems like too much bleeding for someone your age. Rarely heavy menstrual bleeding due to vonwillebrand. Get a check up so you'll know. Take care. ...Read more
