Have lower back pain and heavy period. Have copper IUD fitted. Advice?

I have lower right back pain, coupled with immensely heavy period. I had an copper IUD fitted last August and my periods were not significantly heavier until the last two/three. I began having a new sexual partner in February. Neither of us have had an STI test yet and know this is something we both need to do, but chances are fairly low as we have both had tests late on in our previous relationships. Please could you help.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the lower right back region with a heavy period that you are having could be related to a pelvic pathology. It can be related to pelvic inflammation, UTI, endometriosis or ovarian cause. An ultrasound scan will help in detecting the cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Thanks for posting your query.
Your Lower back pain and heavy periods seems to be due to pelvic inflammatory disease. It could be due to inflammation or infection of internal organs like ovaries and uterus. I suggest you to get it evaluated by a gynaecologist for thourough examination.
Hope this will helps you.
Wishing you good health.
