I had mine for over 2 years and a couple of days after taking it out, I had a heavy bleed for a few days with blood clots, followed by about a week of normal/light bleeding. The best part (or should I say most comforting) was that it was red and not brown sludge coloured like with Mirena. My periods had pretty much been reduced to about half a day of light spotting about every 6-8 wks, so I'm not sure where all my bleeding came from after I took it out. From what I've been reading on here, it seems to be a normal thing to get blood clots a couple of days after removal. I'm still waiting on my first period to see if things are returning to normal.
Also, people should be aware that ibuprofen is a blood thinner (like aspirin), so if you're bleeding due to a possible severed blood vessel (which is probably a load of crap), you may want to consider an alternative pain relief. I've tried a paracetamol/codeine combination which seems pretty good.
