Can Excercise cause some discomfort?

I had a Mirena IUD put in this year. Do to an excercise machine that puts a lot of pressure on my abdominal area it came out. Then I had another one put it. Its been 4 or 5 months and my period is still irregular not knowing how long it is. Because sometimes stops and then starts again. And the pain comes days before I actually bleed. Will this go away after a while? And this time I'm not using any muscle machines. Only tread mill and other cardio machines.

Hi!
IF you were my patient, I would advise you that it is probably OK to go back to weights again if the IUD has been stable for several months.  MANY women will stop having periods after a few months with the IUD, but it is very variable--some women have regular monthly cycles too.  Most have something in between.  USUALLY it does get better, and I would encourage you to wait it out a bit longer.
Good luck!
