I got the IUD in feb and in march 3 weeks after I got the IUD I bleed for 3 weeks straight and the doctor said oh it might be a period we won't know until next month well starting Tuesday I have been changing tampons and pads every hour and the bleeding has no odor so that doesn't mean it's a period right? Plus I'm breast feeding this is now my 4th month doing so and the breast feeding consultant told my I shouldn't get a period so idk I need help have you'll gone through this?Answer Question
What kind of IUD? Mirena or Paragard. Regardless, you should call your OB/GYN to report the bleeding. They will want to know how long it's been going on and how much (like how fast you are soaking a pad / tampon).
I think with Mirena, many women will stop getting their periods after their body adjusts to the IUD.
With Paragard (copper T) your period may actually get heavier and you may have your period more often until your body adjusts to the IUD.
