Heavy bleeding after IUD is placed. Have cramping. Is this normal?

I had a iud put in about 1 1/2 months ago and started bleeding 2 weeks and have not stopped pretty heavy. Yesterday I started passing large blood clots any where from golf ball to baseball size. During one of them my Iud came out with it. The bleeding and cramping stopped until about an hour ago and now I am passing the large blood clots again. Is this normal?

Thanks for the query.

After putting IUD some amount of menstrual disturbances are common.
But as you are having continuous bleeding even after expulsion of the IUD, better to consult gynecologist once and get examined.
Go for coagulation profile once.
After confirming the expulsion of the IUD, take medicines to control the bleeding.
Once your bleeding stops, you can go for some other contraceptive method.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
