Hello ma'am and welcome.

There are two most common complications of having the coil inserted:
1. Pain
2. Bleeding

I would recommend a visit to your gyne at the earliest who shall asses the cause for the bleeding, and decide accordingly whether or not to remove the coil.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
