Hello,
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.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

Good Morning,

I have vaginal blisters for almost two years now. My doctors have done every test but have came out negative. I have the copper IUD and I am not sure if those blisters are associated with it. I have had my iud for about 5 years now. I tried to remove it myself today but I was not able to. Everyday living is soo difficult for me. The doctor even took some skin off my viginal area and the results were negative. I want to take my IUD out. I did not wash that area with soap or put lotion down there Please advice

About 11 months ago, I got the mirena iud. I had some very infrequent spotting for a month or two and then stopped getting my period. Recently, I noticed that my nipples (but not the actual breast) were very sensitive, almost sore. My boyfriend and I have sex without condoms almost every day, so I m wondering if I might be pregnant. I have also noticed an increase in: appetite, fatigue, libido, mild cramping, and lower back pain. I also can t feel my iud strings anymore though my boyfriend says he can. I took an early response home pregnancy test two nights ago, and it came back negative. I still just have a feeling I might be. What is your opinion? I know iuds are supposed to be really effective, but nothing s perfect, and I just want to be careful.
