I had an IUD put in right after my six week check up after DD was born. I did have one normal period before they put it in. Ever since then, my period has been barely there, able to just use panty liners. Now over a year later, I had a really gross brown/black discharge type period that led into really bright red blood, and a lot of it, I'm having to use regular pads again!
Has anyone else had this happen with an IUD. I did just recently slow down to BF'ing DD just at night now. I'm going back to work in a month or so, and wanted her day weened for daycare.

Any advice? (I have a doc appointment tomorrow for the weird black/brown discharge)

  • I don't have any experience with IUDs, but decreasing/increasing BF'ing (or pumping) can effect your cycle. I know that's not much help... :/
