What do you think it could be? What should I do?

As such some cramping and spotting/heavy period can occur after IUD insertion.But after insertion after to make sure the IUD is in correct position an ultrasound examination can be done.

The bleeding may last for a few days or even weeks depending on how your body adjusts to the IUD. You may have spotting on and off or a day or two of heavy bleeding. This is normal and should settle down within 3 months.
