  • Skyla IUD Sudden Period Problems

    I’ve had my Skyla IUD for 2 and a half years now, no complications except for hormonal acne that’s managed well. It’s due to expire next May. My husband and I decided to start trying for a baby, so I have my pre-pregnancy appointment scheduled in a month before I get my IUD taken out when my gyno says I’m all good to go. I also just had a Pap smear (all clear), confirmed strings are in place. I haven’t had a period now in nearly 2 years, they stopped due to the IUD. I now just got a full on period, at random with the works, and it’s going on two weeks. I am confused why I have a period now and why it seems to be dragging on. Has anyone else had this happen so late into IUD use? I’ve googled but can’t find this issue anywhere.

  • I would definitely call your gyno, especially if you're having any pain. I know a lot of women don't have a period when they have an IUD. Breakthrough bleeding can be caused by several things, like cysts or infections. Better to call your gyne, at least for the peace of mind!

      I think you should wait to see if you develop a sexual spark. That would be the time to be completely open and reveal it.
