Copper IUD and pregnancy?

Hannah - posted on 02/05/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have had my copper IUD for 4 months, every month, until this month, I have had heavy periods lasting 4-6 days. This month I had all my usual PMS symptoms then spotted for 3-4 days. I did not get my period, it was not a light flow, it was spotting. My breasts are horribly tender (I'm sure most of you can relate to the feeling!) and I have been nauseous. I called my doctor, she wax quite concerned and I went in yesterday so they could give me a blood test. I will not have the results until tomorrow or more likely Wednesday, and I am trying to calm my mind. If I am pregnant they will remove the device and I will hope I do not miscarry (I intend to keep the pregnancy). I just want to know if this has happened to anyone else? And if so what happened?

I could be your body just settling down after getting it in. I know with the Implanon implant they say to give it 4-6 months before your cycle settles down. That when a lot of women will stop getting their periods.

Fingers crossed either way for you.
