    Extended bleeding is a side effect that is common with the IUD. Nothing can really stop it, unless you maybe remove the IUD, which no gyno would recommend. Gynecologists usually recommend that you weather the storm. The irregular bleeding usually stops after 1-2 months at the most.

    If you have a whole month to go before Thailand, I think you’ll be okay.
