spotting 3 days after period

I have an IUD and honestly I haven't had sex since September i guess. I have had my regular periods but been having a lot of cramping(more than usual)...tightness in my stomach and just started bleeding again after just stopping my period 3 days ago. I have also been having tenderness in my breast. Asked Gyno and they sad just to watch it! Any ideas from any of you.

Hi,
How are you? Copper IUD may cause increased menstrual bleeding or cramps and spotting between periods. While the hormonal IUD can cause hormonal side effects similar to those caused by oral contraceptives, such as breast tenderness, mood swings, headaches, and acne. These side effects usually go away after the first few months. Try not to worry about this and if it persists, inform your doctor for proper management.  This link may be helpful: http://www.webmd.com/sex/birth-control/intrauterine-device-iud-for-birth-control
Take care and hope everything is well. Best regards.
