In the current scenario, I would ask for a trans-vaginal sonogram along with a blood test for pregnancy to know the status. If pregnancy or any other pelvic pathology has been ruled out, you should test for blood profile as well as hormonal imbalances. Any weight changes, stress and medications are also possible causes for the irregular menstrual pattern. If the IUD is found to be causing it, it needs to be removed and an alternate contraceptive method planned. Hope this helps.
