KB Spiral, or better known as an IUD, is one of the contraceptive methods that are much in demand by Indonesian women. After installing an IUD, you and your partner can have sex without having to worry about being broken. Depending on the type, the IUD effectively prevents pregnancy for up to 10 years. However, why do some women report their vagina bleeding after intercourse when using an IUD?
You may experience spots after installing an IUD
Most women may experience mild spots of spots for several days after inserting an IUD. This is a natural side effect that occurs because the body is still adapting to the device.
On the other hand, some women may continue to experience spots between their menstrual schedules for months afterwards. These side effects will usually subside over time.
Vagina bleeds after intercourse when using an IUD, is this normal?
If you later complain of cramps and pain during sex when it was never before, this might be because the position of the IUD has shifted from its place. Yes! IUDs can sometimes move on their own. It usually happens if the installation procedure is not right or because you are anxious and tense during the process.
Spiral KB should be embedded in the womb. When the position shifts and even slides down to the cervix, this can cause your vagina to bleed after intercourse when using an IUD.
How do I know the position of the IUD has been shifted?
At the bottom end of the IUD there is a fairly long string of strings. That is why just after being paired to the uterus, the doctor will cut the string slightly.
You should be able to feel where the rope is. Once you realize that the rope is even shorter or longer than before, this is a sign that the position of the IUD has shifted. In some cases, shifting the position of the IUD can even pull the string into the vagina so that it looks like "swallowed".
Some of these conditions are more likely to make the IUD move easily:
- Install an IUD in adolescence.
- Immediately install an IUD after giving birth.
- Menstrual pain.
How do you handle this?
After 3-6 months of installing an IUD, you should no longer have spots. Including during sex. If you experience pain or bleeding after having sex that is not fair, you should contact your doctor.
If it is true that it is caused by a shifting IUD position, the doctor can justify his position or re-pair with the new one. Remember, the position of a spiral birth control that is out of place can increase your risk of being pregnant.
If the cause is not your IUD tool, the doctor can help determine the exact cause and discuss the best treatment options for you.
So, are there any other side effects from using an IUD?
The most common side effects of an IUD include:
- Irregular periods during the first few months.
- If you use a copper IUD, menstruation will come out more and PMS symptoms (abdominal cramps and back pain) are more painful.
- If you use a hormone IUD, menstruation tends to be much faster and lighter than usual, or even not menstruating at all.
- PMS-like symptoms, such as headaches, pimples, and rheumatic pain in the breast with hormone IUDs
Your menstrual cycle is likely to return to normal after six months. If not, you should consult your doctor immediately.
