It sounds to me that your IUD

It sounds to me that your IUD has been causing problems from the start, especially if your doctor had to give you birth control pills (Normin/Brevinor) to control heavy bleeding. I'm guessing you have a Copper T (Paragard) IUD? This type of IUD is known to cause heavy bleeding.

However, if you having new pain, then this could be a potentially serious problem. This pain could be caused by a threatened or partial IUD expulsion, dislodgment,
infection, or even a pregnancy. Any of these can be serious, thus you should contact your ob/gyn without delay.

Please write again after your trip to the doctor to let us know how you are.
