@r_hink:  I bet the blood was just a little denser than usual. I’ve definitely had spots of blood on the sheets that dried to be hard like that. :/

Bleeding a little in odd ways is completely normal after getting a copper IUD (I had a Paragard before I went to Canada and got the smaller copper IUD they have there; I have a very small uterus– the smallest a Paragard can fit into– and I could feel it poking me. My current one I can’t feel at all, ever). I think your doctor is being overly cautious about the condoms for 30 days recommendation; I was told by both doctors who inserted my IUDs that waiting a few days to a week would be fine, and condoms wouldn’t be necessary at all. But maybe your doctor is conscious of something to do with your health that made them decide to make that recommendation to you.

Almost anything weird is normal for the first couple months of having an IUD. Spotting, a bit of bleeding after sex, random cramps, etc. Not everyone gets any or all of these but I don’t think what you’re experiencing is anything to worry about!
