Hello, apologies as English is not my first language so it may be little bit off!
I have an IUD inserted for over 2 years. Initially, I got it and bled for month then stopped. I have sometimes spotting very light not requiring anything to cover it and some light cramping. I had a partner for the last 7 years and have had clear STD testing etc several times while doctor testing for thrush as I had some issues with that but always had an all clear infections.
I began having sore cramping and heavy bleeding. It is enough to bleed through clothes. My doctor is unavailable to ask question right now, and I feel worried there could be something wrong. I have tried to look this up and there doesn't seem to be much information on it.
Could a potential side effect be of Mirena IUD random bleeding after so long? As soon as the doctor is available I will have a check up, but I've heard friends say it can be a common symptom! Any advice would be welcome.
