I had a copper iud inserted and I was fine the day after but since then I've had non stop bleeding as heavy as a period (I'm not due) and I can't have sex because of it, it's been just over a week since I had it put in, when will the bleeding stop? It also cramps so bad I could throw up
How can I stop it?

It should stop 'soon', but if it is causing big problems, talk to where you went to have it inserted.

When were you suppose to be due? I have a copper iud myself and my cycle has been irregular since I had it fitted and has arrived a week early on occasion (apparently something to do with your womb getting used to having a foreign object inside it, maybe this set off your period early if you were due in a week or so?). I also had cramping and bleeding for a few days after fitting (although not as heavy as a period).

Longer and more painful periods are common side effects of this coil. My first few periods after fitting lasted 10 days but got shorter overtime, my period pain didn't get any worse however I've heard this can settle after a few months. I'd also suggest going back to where you got it if its giving you a very bad time.

I got it inserted last Friday and the bleeding started on Sunday, I'm not due until the very end of the month though so that's a whole 2 weeks early, could that still be it? Just that it's come early? I wasn't told that irregular periods were a side effect, just spotting and heavier periods

It could be possible maybe. Irregular periods aren't listed as a side effect (actually when I mentioned this to the nurse at my 3 month follow up she told me it was impossible for the coil to cause irregular periods as its non-hormonal and said it must be due to my body adjusting to coming off hormonal contraception, I only ever used condoms before I got the coil so this wasn't the case for me) but on IUD Divas on LiveJournal loads of women reported having the same experience. I suggest taking a look over there if you haven't already.

When I had mine I was told it can take unto 6 months for your body to completely accept it and stop bleeding. However I was still getting pains and bleeding after 4 months so got it taken out. you'll need to wait a lot longer than a week or two i'd say (from my own experience anyway!)
