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

I am re-reading these comments, remembering how some of them helped me when I first the coil and was freaking out. I also wanted to share my story and opinion with anyone who is reading this looking around for help and advice desperately through the internet. I got the UID Copper coil fitted 4/5 months ago and after a lot of panic and thought I am sticking with it (for now). At the beginning when I got it fitted, I bled pretty much non-stop for a whole month. At the end of that month I wanted to take it out because it was driving me crazy, my doc said I couldnt yet (I had used it as emergency contraception too so they were worried it wouldnt have an affect). I stayed with it and slowly slowly through the second month, the bleeding calmed down and stopped. Every now and then, even now I will get spotting and instinctively I freak out but it is just the coil - it does that. Periods are horrific, really really painful and so so heavy, and coming from never having had a bad, heavy period before I am not very happy. But there are good things about it for me - I dont have to put any extra hormones in my body and that makes me feel better, and I dont have to worry about contraception all the time, forgetting my pill etc. BUT I honestly think - if, firstly, you're considering the coil and you're not sure, here's the warning: it will be a pain in the *** and painful too for a while, maybe longer or shorter than me. If you have it and you've been bleeding for many months- I would personally have taken it out by now. But this message is to reassure you - it will stop, someday. I dont know how long it will take, but one day it will be normal again, and if you can wait for it - its great for another 4-10 years after. :) IF you're being driven crazy - get it taken out, its not a good method for you if it is stressing you out and making you unhappy. Sorry about my rambling, I hope this helps someone. Good luck!
