  • I bleed for about a month then everytime i had sex. For about another month. Everyone is different but stock up just in case.

  • I bled for the full 3 months they told me I would, but it was really just spotting. I didn't need pads or tampons, and it wasn't constant. Not nearly so bad in hindsight as I thought it was at the time.

  • I bled for a month, but never heavy enough to have anything more than pantyliners.

  • I have had mine for a little over 3 months now and i am still bleeding. Not heavy but just enough to wear pantyliners or a small pad. I just wish it would stop. My doc told me sex could help make it stop sooner, one problem with that my husband is over seas. ick.
