Hi Dr. Ashori here.

Have you checked to make sure you aren't pregnant?

Also, how is the pain, is it getting better or worse?

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

It's common after removal of an IUD to not get your period for a few months.

Especially if it was hormone coated IUD, then you might get an irregular period first either with excess bleeding or spotting before the normal period starts.

If you have pictures of the blood and clots upload them so that I can make sure it's nothing abnormal.

You can start taking higher dose anti-inflammatories like naproxen or ibuprofen which can stabilize the endometrium and help you get back to a normal period.

You could also start on birth control pills for 1-2 weeks until the bleeding is controlled but I would recommend just waiting it out, usually the bleeding will normalize.
