Had copper coil fitted. Feel bloated stomach, bleeding. Is this normal?

Hi, i had the copper coil fitted 13 days ago. I have bled ever since. The blood is very red and quite like mucus . My stomach also seems bloated or bigger than it usually is despite excercising 4-5 days per week and having a healthy diet . Is this normal at this stage of having the coil fitted? I am not in any pain or discomfort.

It is possible for inter-menstrual spotting and irregular periods to occur in the initial 3-6 months after getting a coil inserted. Since you have been constantly bleeding for the past 10 days, it is essential that your doctor sees you and decides whether you should continue with the coil. Meanwhile avoid exercise, intercourse and take bed rest. You can feel the threads yourself and check if they are in place. Please contact your doctor for further advice. Take care.
