Hi there,
Welcome to HCM.
Why are you taking pain killers daily? Please avoid painkillers because you are feeding your baby. Bleeding after copper coil insertion for so long is definitely worrisome. I suggest you get yourself examined by your gynec. Bleeding could be due to wrong insertion of the coil. Iron tablets have been prescribed as you are lactating. Diet changes during feeding is necessary. Lactating mothers have to eat 500 calories more than the normal diet for production of milk. Definitely include lots of fiber and protein in your diet to give the energy to look after yourself and your child. Thanks.
