  • One of the side effects of any birth control is sporadic periods. Since it has been over 3 months, I would talk to your doctor about it. You should have regulated out by now.

  • I'm not sure which IUD you have, but if it has been this long and you still are having problems, you really should see your doctor again. There may be other things factoring in or this may not be the right birth control for you. Only your doctor can assess and determine what is going on.

  • I agree....with the others. I'd talk to the doc about it. I know any BC (including devices) can cause erratic periods at first, however 3 months is long enough for you body to have "worked it out".

  • I would go back and see your doc, Jademom07 is right; you should have regulated by now. There are many different factors that can cause this, and it's not normal.
