Bleeding can occur with the iud and it would not be uncommon to have bleeding a couple of months after placement. Fever, cramping, nausea, vomiting abdominal distention? If concerned c md.

In brief: Yes x 2

It is possible to have an infection after an iud is placed.
However, it is usually associated with just after the iud is placed. It is also possible and not uncommon for bleeding to occur for a couple of months after iud is first placed, especially with the copper iud.
