I have an IUD. I haven't had a period in months and now all of the sudden I'm having a really heavy one...

Is that pretty normal with the IUD?

I've had it since February. I had one period after getting it and then a tiny bit of spotting here and there. A few days ago I started spotting and I woke up this morning with heavy dark red bleeding. I'm really crampy too.

And before the spotting started I felt like my left ovary was swollen and it was very tender to touch.
