Thanks for posting your query.
IUD is commonly associated with side effects that you are facing and most of the times these symptoms do settle spontaneously in 4-6 weeks without any treatment.
Some of the common side effects are
Irregular menses, i.e either more bleeding, less bleeding or no bleeding or spotting. Vaginal itching or infections.
Headache, dizziness, cold and flu symptoms.
Stomach pain, irregular motions, nausea .
Mood swings, depression
Acne, weight gain/loss, breast engorgement.
So if you are really uncomfortable visit your doctor and get yourself evaluated.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
