It is mandatory that you get a checkup after your first period after the IUD insertion. Thereafter, you may check it up yourself. It is common for bleeding disturbances to occur initially and if the bleeding is heavy or continuous, you should consult your doctor. Also, severe pain needs immediate medical attention. So, see your doctor for a check up and further management. Good luck.
