Presence of an intrauterine device does not increase the risk of vaginal infections; it is the genital hygiene that determines it. Since you have irritation along with the spotting, you will need a local examination by a specialist to see if there is any local cause like vaginitis, polyp, erosion or cervicitis responsible. The intactness of the IUD also can be checked alongside. If there is any cycle disturbance, a blood test for pregnancy should be performed along with a trans-vaginal sonogram to exclude/confirm pregnancy. Hope you find this information useful. Take care.
