Hello Wie

Thanks for the question. Do you know what type of IUD you are using? An intrauterine device (IUD) is a T-shaped contraceptive device that is inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. There are two types of IUDs, namely the copper IUD (does not contain hormones) and the hormonal IUD.

Side effects of using the copper IUD are heavier periods accompanied by abdominal pain; whereas in hormonal IUDs, menstruation occurs less, becomes irregular, or even does not menstruate at all. Hormonal IUD users will also experience minimal abdominal pain. If you are using the copper IUD, this heavy menstrual bleeding is a side effect of the IUD. These side effects will usually last for several months and improve after a few months.

You can continue to monitor these side effects for up to 3 months. If the bleeding persists for a long time or is accompanied by other symptoms such as dizziness, paleness, weakness, blurred vision, please consult an obstetrician and gynecologist immediately. If these side effects bother you, you can consult your doctor about the contraceptive that is suitable for you.
