Looks like frequent irregular menses.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

Looks like frequent irregular menses.

Irregular bleed can have many reasons.

It can be hormonal or otherwise.

Did you have unprotected sex?

Do you have irregular periods before?

Also i will suggest an ultrasonography to see what is causing it.

Feel free to consult me directly

Brief Answer:
IUD themselves cause irregular menses

Detailed Answer:

If you had IUD the no need to worry about pregnancy .

But IUD themselves cause irregular menses. This might be cause of your bleed.

Frequent Irregular menses means one that comes twice or thrice a month out of expected dates.

If it is too discomforting i will advice you to get IUD removed and then use some other contraceptive like condoms.

Also can you feel the IUD thread ? If not then get a sonography asap and let me know.
