Bleeding and pains with Marina IUD
I had a baby (second) in January 09 and had the Marina IUD a few weeks after. It was ok for a month or so but since then I have started on and off bleeding - light, dark, little and alot. The past week I also started with what feels like my old period pains.
I have no pain during sex.

The reason for the Marina is that I suffer from Endometriosis and cysts and have had a few operations since I was 19 (I am now 27). I do not intend having any more children but obviously with my age am reluctant to have a hystorectomy and therefore chose the marnna.

PLease advise if this is normal or I should see my gyne.

The spotting is normal but you shouldn't be having pain. See your gynaecologist.
