IUD question

So I had my IUD in for a month and was always bleeding and cramping, finally I took it out, And when I took it out I bled like I was on my period, unlike before it was more like heavy spotting. And well my period like bleeding went away after 4-5 days, and now its been a while and should be starting my period. Do you think that my IUD did changes to my body that fast that I would skip a period. I have also taken two pregnancy test both negative. So I am just waiting on the visit.

  • Not sure which one you had... If its copper or Mirena.

    Yeap I sure do believe it was from the Mirena IUD. I had one, hated it. Bled the entire 6 months I had it. However, if you did manage to get pregnant on it, it could kill your unborn baby... So I'd definitely be a little concerned if your period doesn't start soon, however it can take 6-8 weeks to get your period after having IUD removed.

    When it doubt though, do call your doctor.

  • @ OP.

    Yeah my Mirena experience wasn't very good. I got it about a month after my daughter was born. I had lost most of the pregnancy weight and was back into my normal clothes. Once I got Mirena, ballooned up to 190 lbs, hair falling out, headaches, depression, acne all over, etc. I was bleeding the entire time and I am a chronic anemic so it made me really sick. I was also very emotional all of the time.

    After 6 months of that I got it removed. Got prego 2 months later and had a miscarriage at 19.5 weeks. Having an IUD can increase your chances of miscarriage, so I definitely blame it on Mirena. I am so glad to have that thing out of me. So, as you can see the Mirena caused numerous complications for me and most appeared within the first 2 months of using it. I fully believe the Mirena can be the culprit of your problem. I am concerned if you're pregnant or not, and when you got prego.

  • @ OP again.

    As with any birth control, it does take Mirena a little while to get out of your system. However it is possible to get pregnant right away. The hormone in Mirena is called progesterone btw.

  • But at the same note, I've been using the dollar tree pregnancy test, should I take a different one? Just got the one from dollar tree because its cheap, but I can get a different one to see if its not just the test. Not really wanting my period, but it would be nice to know whats going on with my body.

  • I'd take a digital one honestly. They always work for me great and are often times able to detect pregnancy up to a week earlier.
