  • Its normal. The body has to get rid of the uterine lining. This happened to me for a while after.

  • It is normal- but sometimes your uterus can be "unstable" and they have to put you on hormones for 10 days. I had my IUD out last year and at first I was just bleeding with some tissue. Then one night- I bleed so much- it woke me up and I had stained the sheets. So I called my doctor- she put me on hormones for 10 days and I was back to normal before I knew it. So it is normal- but if it doesn't get better- call your doctor and ask. Those hormones made quite a difference for me!
