Thanks for the query.

Ectopic pregnancy usually will not present with excessive per vaginal bleeding instead internal bleeding occur in this case.
So there is possibility of IUD related menorrhagea or endometriosis.
So you once consult your gynecologist and undergo physical examination and ultrasound to findout the possible cause.
If the bleeding is found to be due to IUD, you may go for removal with her advice.
Take care.
