I bled heavily for about 3-4 days after I got it removed. I also passed some large clots. The bleeding stopped, however I have had occasional light spotting and heavy mucus the past 2 weeks. I think it is my body trying to get back to normal. They say that the IUD is supposed to stop the lining of your uterus from building up. I find this really hard to believe with all the bleeding and clots I experienced. I called the doc when I was bleeding really bad. Told me to keep an eye on it; if I was going through a pad an hour, I should call back. The bleeding slowed down.
