Is placing IUD the reason of heavy bleeding ?

I currently have the Mirena IUD placed. and lately i have been experiencing symptoms that i am not sure if they are normal or not. I got my IUD placed in the end of january and for the first two months i was constantly bleeding almost every other day. After that i experienced severe cramps and back pain i went to the hospital for it and they didnt do much except give me pain medicine. After that everything seemed fine i didnt get any cramps and i finally stopped bleeding every other day and moved on to light spotting here and there or id have my period. the only thing that hadnt stopped is i would continue to have blood clots come out when id go to the bathroom. Well in the last week or so my boyfriend and i had intercourse and the first time everything was ok and then we would have it again and i started bleeding and it was bright red and wasnt like period blood. after the first time this happened i thought maybe we were just being too rough. Well a few days later we did it again and the first time again everything was normal and then we would go for a second time and i would be bleeding a ton again. Im not sure if this is because the IUD but im starting to get scared.

Mild spotting or even slight bleeding is commonly seen for upto 20 days after inserting an IUD. There may also be some bleeding after intercourse few times. Intermittent cramps are also common. All these symptoms are because of IUD only and you need not feel scared now.
