  • Yeah, I had mine taken out in June 2009 and I bled heavy for the first couple of weeks afterwards. It is normal. But it's NOT a "period" .... it's just bleeding from having the IUD taken out and your body adjusting to it. Anyway, I only bled heavy for the first 2 weeks or so, the next month I started having a normal period and by September I was pregnant with twins (now i"m 18 weeks.) So don't worry about it... it's totally normal.
