Weird bleeding??

So, I got an IUD inserted about 3 months ago, (the copper Paragard) and since have had very strange menstruation. Last month, I got my period on time and had light bleeding for about 2 weeks, and then heavy bleeding for one week. Then, only 8 days later I got my period AGAIN! I have been bleeding (lightly) for a full week again, with no sign of it letting up. (Clarification - this means in the past 5 weeks, I have bled for 4.) Does anyone have any ideas about why this might be happening? Should I be nervous about my uterus with this IUD? Or about anything else?

Also, I started using a menstrual cup around the same time as I began this non-stop bleeding. Is there any way they could be related?

Any ideas/advice at all are welcome!
