Had my copper IUD removed on 9/21/09

I'm not sure this is the correct place to ask this, but here goes.  I had my copper IUD removed on 9/21/09 and after I give my body a few months to recover, I plan to ttc.  Anyway, a few days after removing the IUD, I started spotting and gradually started my period.  Now here is my concern.  Okay I know its gross, I'm sorry.  My bleeding seems to be what I can only describe as 'dirty blood'...brown and grainy looking.  Nothing I've ever experienced before.   Tonight as I changed my tampon (sorry again), it looked almost completely black.  As I've never had an IUD removed before, I'm not sure if this is my body's way of 'cleansing' after having the IUD in for about 5 years???  Any information is greatly appreciated!! Thanks for reading.
