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...
