IUDs generally make the periods longer, heavier and painful. In case the presence of the device is troubling you, you can go for removal as it helps to correct your cycles as well as relieve you of discomfort. Instead, you can try other better means of contraception. You may also need iron supplementation as this bleeding could have resulted in anemia. Please get further advice from your doctor. Good luck.
