The IUD could be the cause. You should definitely call your GYN because of the cramping and heavier periods--just to make sure they're the degree she/he expected. Irritability and snarkiness can be caused by a number of physiological, psychological, and/or environmental issues. I would be more irritable and fatigued if I had four children. But if your change in attitude and increased fatigue are concerning you, see your primary or GYN for an evaluation. Have your hormones and blood values (CBC and ferritin) checked to see if they're contributing to your fatigue, GYN symptoms, and attitude change. In the meantime, hang in there!
