Hi doctor,

I had my Skyla IUD placed before two and a half years. In the last two months, my period has stopped for about two to three days. Then, again returned after another three days. This month, I had my periods for two times with terrible constipation and lower back pain. Could the progesterone be wearing off?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

IUD (intrauterine device) does not cause constipation. But, back pain can occur, because of the bleeding patterns after placing IUD. You can take syrup M2 tone (Ashoka and Lodhra) two tablespoons thrice daily for one month. Take Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day for three days. Take syrup Cremaffin pink (Milk of magnesia and Liquid Paraffin) two tablespoons at night for constipation. You will get relief.
