IUD, cramping, and bleeding
Hi
I have had an IUD for nearly 5 years. About a year ago, I started getting my period again-- relatively light flow with a huge PMS build-up. Recently, I have been getting spotting between periods mostly the day after intercourse; lately it's just been happening every now and then, especially if I am even slightly aroused. Today, I am spotting and having steady cramps and I just got my period two weeks ago. What does this mean? Is it time to get the IUD out? What could be the causes?

Hello,
Spotting before periods could be due to several causes. The commonest cause is pregnancy with impending miscarriage. Few other conditions causing spotting between periods are endometriosis, STDs, cervical, uterine or ovarian cancers and ovarian cysts. Any vaginal bleeding other than your periods should be evaluated. Consult your gynecologist for more details. You may need pregnancy test, pelvic scan and pap smear. Keep me posted.
Best wishes and take care!
