  • is it the one with hormones or without? I have known a lot of women that bleed for months on the one with hormones. I personally had the copper one. My periods were more painful and a little longer than normal, but never two weeks. I would talk to your doctor about different options (check what insurance will cover first) and see what you feel you need to do. I agree with you that a two week period is a pain in the ass.

  • My best friend has that one and she bled alot for like 4 months then it just quit.She loves it now but at first she really hated it. I would ask ur doctor though and make sure its normal.

  • I had my IUD removed yesterday because of the cramping that I was having, acne, and the on and off spotting. If it is really bothering you to have it maybe you should consider having it removed. You can always go with another method of birth control.
