Copper IUDS and non-stop bleeding?

sep. 19 of this year I went in to OB's office and got a copper IUD.Sence then my monthly won't stop or stops for two or three days and starts back up. Is this normal? I'm noy feeling any cramping or pain but I am worried about the bleeding.In the past two months its stoped twice and it seems to act up more after sex. Help please.

It's not common to have nonstop bleeding.  Go back to your doctor to figure out what's causing it.

I used to have one & I spotted everyday for several months. Then itcame out on its own (that freaked me out!) & I decided not to go that route again.

Interesting. I had Mirena IUD and the bleeding would not stop for 3-4 months, so decided to try copper IUD and LOVED IT! The bleeding stopped and I never had any problems or bleeding in between periods. My periods were more regular than ever! The only thing I noticed with the copper t is that I had heavier periods. But that was it. I would recommend it to everyone! I would give it a little bit of time. It's such a great, worry free form of birth control! Good luck!

I had a copper iud after my daughter was born and i loved it.
I chose to have the merena after just having my son because the dr said it was even more effective. Well i know i wont get pregnant because i am always spotting every day so sex is something we just dont have.I DID LOVE THE COPPER iud.

I had an IUD about 2 years ago and I hate I got it I stay on my menstrual for almost 2 months then when I was off I couldnt have intercouse b/c it was soooo painful I really couldnt sit up b/c I felt something sticking me then plus i caught some kind of infections and when i went back to the doctor they told me that the doctor who did it place it in wrong (now i had it done at the same clinic).

I say do now use any of those birth control method all of it cause a side effect and later on down the line when u want to have kids ur not going to be able. my husband and I been trying for 3 year and nothing happen I had the depo, the IUD the pill, none of that stuff is good for us read the labels and the side effect PLEASE!!

I'm 29yrs old and decided to recently put in the copper iud about 3mths and my period was fine but this month I have had my period for 2 wks now and it doesn't stop it's not heavy but it's there and it's driving me crazy and I'm getting worried. Can someone maybe give me some advice because it's getting frustrating and don't want to do the pill again. Thanks
