For me (I also have had the copper IUD twice now) the insertion was a million times worse than the removal.

The removal was really quite painless and I felt fine afterwards too. I had a tiny bit of spotting, but otherwise I was 100% fine.

I don't think you have to worry about getting a heavier period. The only way I can see that happening, is if you have a hormonal the hormones in the IUD would make your period lighter, so once you remove it, it could make your periods normal or heavy.

If anything, having the copper IUD will make your periods heavier over time, so having it removed may actually make you have lighter ones after a cycle or two!

Good luck!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
