Patient :I had an iud put in 8 days ago with my doctor and 7 days ago I had it removed in the emergency dept as it was very painful. Is it normal that I would still be bleeding. Not a lot but enough to use a pad. I have also had cramps all week and some discomfort where the iud was put in
Thank you for writing to us
What you are describing seems to be pelviv inflammatory disease. The treatment is removing the iud and maintaining you with hormones.
Hope this helps you. All the best.
