i Have just gotten my copper IUD about 4 months ago since iv gotten it i often feel lite headed and get the shakes also every time i have sex i have abdominal pain and in major discomfort does any one have this problem and what have u done or tried to get rid of the pain and feel better??? also i find myself to be bloated all the time since my insertion.
I had pain with sex with my copper IUD - not at first, but after a while. It really should NOT hurt, and if it does, you should probably see your provider. I don't know why it would cause bloating, either - it doesn't have hormones. I had it removed as mine had shifted and was embedding itself in surrounding tissues - ick? Some people just can't tolerate it - when it's working well, it shouldn't give you any symptoms...
