first i want to say i'm only 29 and i have 2 kids and i've had an iud in for the past 9 years with no problems at all. went to the dr in oct for annual check up everything is great. here's my situation i got a normal period on nov 26th lasting 5-7 days or so. then on dec 15th again, normal period. then on dec 29th thought i was spotting but later in day there was blood like a period. wasnt like a normal period cause it only last 3 days and was very light, by light i mean not too much on pad and only blood when i would wipe-sorry for being graphic. then it was over and now it;s the 17th and last night i went to the bathroom and again there was blood. put on a pad today and very little blood as if it was the beginning of my period (i always got a little at first then by the second day it would be heavy). has this ever happened to anyone before? its not menopause i have no cramping just concerned on what it could be? any help would be great.
i spoke to my hubbys aunt, who is also a nurse, and she said that it does happen every so often and as long as there is no pains in abdomen and no fever its okay. i am on the copper T IUD and i even though they say its ok to leave it in for 12 years total i think i might have them replace it at they end of this year, by then i'll have it in for 10 years.
