Nova T
Hi Doc

I had the nova T loop inserted about 3 weeks ago. Everything went well. I spotted every now and then as my ganae said, however I started my period last week Thursday and it is Friday today and the period is still there and very strong. I am flowing at times.

Is this how it ia supposed to be with the first period or should I see my doc.

Please let me know what should be done and if I should just wait abit.

Heavy prolonged bleeding can be a side effect of the IUCD. If it has not stopped, perhaps you should call your doctor.
