  • well I have a few more question is it heavy bleeding? exactly when did you get it incerted? have you had sex since you had it incerted? and did you get minerea? I had light bleeding for a 10days and the last 4 days it was more spotting than bleeding. I didn't have sex for the whole ten days because it can lead to infection and more bleeding in the frist two weeks( doctor told me this) but I have had it for 7 months now my period is only three days and I have minerea. OH and if you have minerea it does have hormones in it and you maybe bleeding because if that too. but if your bleeding is super heavy call your doctor

  • Your dr. should have told you that you can spot for up to 12 weeks after insertion. I did for almost 3 months...
