bleeding after inserting the loop
I just inserted the loop (Copper T) on Monday 15/11/04. My worry is soon after that, I started mestruating for the second time this month. is this normal or should I get worried. If it is normal, how long will the bleeding last?

It is probably just as a result of having the IUCD inserted and should settle in a few days. Be sure to check the strings every month.
