Paraguard IUD and strange cycle? Any advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

I usually get my AF every 17 days.  I have had the paraguard IUD for almost 2 years now and never had any problems like this.  The first day of AF was on Jan 18 until Jan 24.  This week I have been spotting and I am supposed to have my cycle next Friday however, it came early yesterday. I first saw light pink blood, continual spotting this week and today I see blood. I have cramps and my back hurts.  Same like I am getting my real AF but for some reason I am getting it 6 days earlier.  

 

Is this normal?  I felt my strings and I can still feel them but I really hope I am not preggo.  What do you think is the cause of this?  

 

Can weight loss or stress contribute to this mysterious change?

 

Any advice or recommendations?

 

THANKS
