Brief Answer:
premenstrual spotting

Detailed Answer:
Dear member,
Thanks for writing.
The iucd often causes premenstrual spotting where you can have spotting on and off for 3-4 days and later followed by moderate blood flow. Other than a minor nuisance it's harmless.
You can neglect it. Usually after a few cycles it disappears in most women.
If you don't get your regular flow in a day or 2 or the bleeding is very irregular then you will need further examination to check the threads of the IUCD.
