Have IUD, spotting after period

I have a Copper IUD, and I've had it for a year now.  Three months ago I had bv and horrible odor and spotting after my period. I went to the doctor got antibiotics and everything got better.  I just had my period last week and I wasn't really expecting it because I was having ovulating pain on my side(I believe that the period was a bit early) but period lasted 5 days as usual so I wasn't worried.  Anyway 3 days after my period I start spotting and I'm having mild cramps, happened a day after I had sex with my husband.
I don't know what's going on, or if this is a common thing for copper IUD's...or could I be pregnant? Please help...

Aisham, your issue sounds very similar to mine.  I've had the copper IUD since March.  Finally around June, it began to regulate itself (bleeding-wise).  My period is actually longer and was very heavy, but have leveled off.  This month; however, it was 5 days late, but normal (IUD normal).  Three days after my period (I guess this is ovulation period when you feel mild cramps and pain on either side.  Actually I've felt it on both this time.  I usually have a clear discharge at this time also; but it's spotted with blood and a lot of it.  It's been going on for four days now... I wasn't sure if I should get a pregnancy test or just wait it out.
