In brief: May not get better

Depending on what type of iud you got, cramps may or may not get better. Mirena (levonorgestrel) often helps with crampy/heavy periods, but paraguard may make cramping worse.
Motrin/aleve may help. If not better or worsen, follow-up with your doc for an evaluation. Good luck.
