So I waited the 7 days to have sex after getting Skyla but I've still been light bleeding and spotting. My partner came inside of me and I wondered if me still bleeding would have any effect on the IUD's effectiveness
I seriously doubt it, IUD's are a kind of continuous abortion device designed to make the uterus hostile to any implantation and a normal pregnancy is very rare. Do not concern yourself.
You're still adjusting to having an IUD in your uterus but it will still be effective if you waited the whole 7 days.
