@Deejayelle:  I get random cramping and spotting all the time but I’m only just into my second year with it. I wonder if maybe the hormones that have stopped your period are starting to wane a bit and it could just be you getting your monthly visitor. Or it could just be the way your body is dealing with the hormones after a certain length of time. Honestly though, I can only guess at it since I’m not a doctor and this is my first time with the IUD. Maybe you should talk to your doctor about how your body has been acting with the BC and they might be able to give you some insight as to what is going on.

I have had mine since July of 2009. My period stopped 3 months after insertion, and nothing has changed since then.

@Deejayelle:  I’ve had mine for about 3.5years now and after 2 year mark started having similar symptoms.

I occassionally have a spotting period and cramps, not every month but semi regularily. It’s more of an annoyance then anything. It’s been a year and a half since it started  and it clearly hasnt changed the effectiveness of the IUD- havne’t been K/U yet, not worried I will be either.

It’s likely just how your body is reacting to the hormones. My Doctor said when I had it put in that the lack of periods with it was just an added benefit to this IUD and had nothing to do with the effectiveness..

I’m in my 4th year now. I think it’s probably normal, but check with your doctor.

I just recently called my doctor because I had a full on period only for 2 days though, but it was the first I’ve had since I got it. She said to check to make sure it was still in place (it was). She said if it is not in place, obviously needs to be re-positioned by her or if it is in place, it’s normal.
