Just curious how long you had initial bleeding and cramping after paragard insertion. I know they told me that some bleeding was normal, but they sent me home with a pad, it's been over a week and I have use to tampons. Seems a little excessive to me, the cramps aren't bad, not even as bad as my regular menstrual cramps, but I thought they would be gone by now too.

  • I just had light spotting. However, my periods were heavier for the first several months (7-8) before they got back to normal.

  • I had bleeding off and on for about 4 months or so.
