Paragard Question

How long did you bleed after it was inserted?

My dr told me I would experience some bleeding and cramping, but didn't give me any sort of idea of how long that would last. Googling has told me that it could be anywhere from one month or even six

It was inserted Wed afternoon and I'm having what is like a heavy period (although it's definitely a different kind of bleeding), but I'm not experiencing any pain or cramps.

Re: Paragard Question

I bled for about a week after I had mine. Then all was good until 30 days later. I had what seemed like a period and at that time, my IUD fell out. I know for certain because I happened to catch it when I wiped. I think its an individual thing.

Re: Paragard Question

I'm very thankful to report that my bleeding has at least slowed down. I'm starting to think I actually started my cycle at the same time (two days after) it was put it as my bleeding changed and I actually started having some cramping. I was expecting it soon anyway. Thanks for your input!

I bled for about 4 days, then on and off light pinkish (TMI) spotting for about another 4 days, then nothing at all. I have not had my first period yet. So far I really like it!

Re: Paragard Question

I just had a long period when I first got one years ago. I don't have one anymore, though, and couldn't be happier about that (I grew to hate the blasted thing). I use FAM/NFP now.
