copper iud/coil really long period watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter


    I had the copper coil put in in October last year and this is my 5th period. I started on the 13th February and have nearly been on for a month?

    Is this a cause for concern or just a side effect?

    It's worth talking to your GP / wherever you got it from about whether there's a problem. Some women do get longer and/or heavier bleeds with the copper IUD, but nearly four weeks is not something that you should expect to have to put up with.
