I gave birth to our first child this past May. 4 weeks after birth I had an IUD inserted. Ever since the birth I have been bleeding. It’s not super heavy, more like spotting. I went to my OB/GYN last week and she did an exam and said everything was normal and that bleeding this long can happen to some women. I am wondering if anyone has had a sminilar experience and how long it took you to completely stop bleeding.

I haven’t, my bleeding stopped around 4 weeks. Not have I had an IUD, but I have heard that two possibilities with an IUD are either no bleeding ever, or bleeding fairly constantly while you adjust. So your body might just be sorting out the IUD (while also dealing with post partum hormones…). That sounds super annoying though, not what you want to deal with when you have a baby, hopefully it stops soon!

I bled for close to 6 weeks after birth, no birth control. It could just be continued from birth or due to the hormones from the iud.

I have not been pregnant, but I bled/spotted about 3months after my IUD was inserted. Then five years of blissful no periods.

I have an iud and I bleed every month. Not heavy like before but I still get a period.
