It's been a bit, so I don't remember all the dirty details
But I know it did not hurt at all (it hurt pretty decently putting it in for me, my body is shaped a bit odd). I was pleasantly surprised that it was painless to remove. I also do not believe it affected my period. I know I got it out mid-cycle and my expected period showed up like normal. I do tend to bleed a lot, so I don't know if I would have noticed if it was heavier than normal.
And no, in my experience, a period wouldn't be cause to reschedule. I know my doc has done 2/3 post partum visits with me still bleeding, so it's not like it's a new thing for them (and really, they just grab the strings and pull). You should be good.
