I had a copper iud put in about 7 months ago. Things have been fine and i love not having to think about contraception. I have a little girl who just turned one and i've been nursing so i didn't have my period for awhile. my period started again couple months ago and i've had it twice. its heavier and longer than i'm used to, lasting at least 7 days. Now it is 2 weeks after my last period started, 1 week after it ended, so i am mid cycle and i am having some bleeding. I had intercourse on friday night with my husband and it was much longer than normal and we tried a kind of extreme position that was much deeper than normal. i noticed the bleeding in the morning and it has continued now for 3 days. its not heavy like a period but enough that i have to wear a pantyliner. i have heard about women's uteruses being punctured with iuds and even uteruses having to be removed. is it possible that deep sex could have pushed the iud through my uterus? Have there been cases of this? i called my doctors office, they said its probably nothing to be concerned about. most likely i'm worried for no reason, but even if there is just an outside chance of something being seriously wrong, i'd like to be aware of it. Thank you so much for your time!
