In brief: Merena IUD

Has progesterone so it is not uncommon that periods may cease with this IUD.
Sometimes with IUDs when periods occur they are more painful and may have longer bleedings as well. I assume the tissue is blood like9 so that may be your period) if you are concerned f/u with gyn they can do an ultrasound and check the postion
