I had a copper IUD put in about a month ago, following a hysteroscopy and diganostic d&c. About two weeks ago, I was in moderate pain following sex and started bleeding. The bleeding was light at first and is now very heavy with small clots and lots of mucus and for the last few days I have also been experiencing severe camping (bad enough to wake me up at night unable to move and wanting to throw up). Could this be normal for the first few months with an Iud while my body adjusts, or a sign of something worse and i should phone my doctor? Also the strings got lost during the insertion, so I have no way to tell if its in properly.
