I've had my IUD for a little over a year. I was in a long term relationship and had no issues with my IUD. I'm in a new relationship with a man who is, well, huge. We have sex several times a week and while sex does not hurt, I've noticed that I bleed fairly often afterwards. Its fresh, bright red blood, so I know its new. I check my sting every week and I've also noticed that its bent. I have acrylic nails which helps me pull it straight, but its a pain to deal with. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not worried about dislodging my IUD, but I am worried that the sting is going to wrap around my cervix. And what's with this bleeding? It doesn't last long and is usually gone by the next day. I'm seriously considering removing my IUD and getting the arm implant. Any input is appreciated!
When you have unusual bleeding like this, you should see your gyno. It may be just because he is big and maybe a bit vigorous and your getting small tears or it could be from the string. Does he complain of feeling it? It is best if you just go ahead and let your gyno take a look at things to make sure all is well. Personally I never would do the IUD! I'd go for the implant but that is just personal opinion. I have seen enough incidences of perforated uteri and women getting pregnant the losing the baby when they try to remove the IUD but if they leave the IUD it can harm the growing fetus. Just not a fan of IUDs here. I'd rather use BCP or the implant or maybe even the ring. If you are not planing on having any more children then tubal ligation is the way to go! I had a tubal after my second baby and have never looked back!
