Hi,

Following  hormonal IUD insertion symptoms like:
- Cramping with on and off bleeding / spotting
- Pelvic pain and back pain
- Headache / migraine etc are reported. These symptoms will settle within 6 months of IUD insertion. I advise you to:
- Take a course of DMPA or cyclic progestins and oral estrogens as per your doctor guidance, till the spotting stops
- Do USG pelvis to look for any any pathology

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Yogapriya Vasudevan, General & Family Physician
