Menstrual Cycle out of wack

Hi, I had the Paragard put in almost 2 years ago after my 2nd child was born. Everything has been pretty good with it, my periods are a bit heavier but always exactly 28 days a part. Lately I have been having periods every 2-3 weeks for the last 3 cycles. My husband and I still procreate and everything is fine and doesn't hurt. Not sure why this is happening all of a sudden. Wondering if I should see my Dr. ?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would first recommend a pregnancy test--not because I think pregnancy is very likely, but because I always rule that out whenever the bleeding is unusual. If the test is positive, obviously I would want my own patient to call immediately.  If negative, I might bring you in for and exam and some tests.  Sometimes medications can improve the bleeding.  Which medications to use depends upon what I think is causing the bleeding.
I guess my answer is "yes", call your doctor.
Good luck!
Dr B
