Periods with the Paragard IUD


Q: I recently had the
Paragard IUD put in
3 months ago. Everything
Is going fine, and it helped
My period, because I use
To have HORRIBLE cramps
But having the IUD has
Made me bleed more
And cramp less. But now
Starting my period for this month
I'm hardly bleeding at all
And what I am is mostly the dark
Discharge from after my period.
With little actual blood.
Is this normal for bleeding?
To just decrease that much?
And be hardly anything ?
It feels weird not bleeding
This much, because I've
Never bled this little EVER even
Before the IUD.
