Hi all! I got a copper IUD put in around a month ago, and I had the horrendous pains, went through my first copper IUD hellish period, and stopped bleeding. But then, three days later... I started just continuously bleeding... All the time. It's been two weeks now that I've bled every day, and although it's not a lot (a thin panty liner is enough all day), it's continuous and very , very annoying.

I had my check up with my GP today, and she said it's in the right place, but said she had 'never heard of someone bleeding a month after insertion'. I've done a bit of googling and i've found PLENTY of people say they've bled non-stop for a long time after insertion.

My question is - how long did it last for you guys? I'm still on the pill at the moment, but she suggested I stop taking the pill and see if my body works itself out. But i'm confused how the pill could have ANYTHING to do with it - in fact, the pill should mean I definitely should not be bleeding, as my hormones are controlled.

I'm finding it very frustrating, and it's affecting how I see myself. Just looking for some support! I'm amazed this product made it to market with the common side-effects it causes. Starting to think I was better off just staying on hormones for the next 10 years...

Thanks xo

1. A copper IUD is non-hormonal so I wouldn't be artificially changing the rhythm of my body - I want to make sure I'm still able to have kids and have a normal cycle.
2. Men suck and got headaches on the man pill , so this is the closest I can get to my normal cycle without trying (and getting pregnant using) FAM.
