Periods with Liletta IUD

Hello IUD divas I am new to live journals and love the idea of this group!
I have had the Liletta now for 6 months I decided to get it after being on the pill for many years and had great results always remembered to take it and predictable Short periods but I wanted something that I could deal with once and then forget about it, go IUD simplicity! I am 32 years old and never been pregnant.
My periods have been 10 days long since getting the IUD! And some days it’s only spotting so I can wear a panty liner and be all set but sometimes out of no where it’s really heavy. Some days I go all day with no bleeding and then bleed heavily in the evenings. I’ve had to be very on my toes and had a few embarrassing moments with bleeding through my pants I feel like a young girl just figuring it all out again. I have started using a menstrual disc so I can wear one all day and no have to worry about bleeding heavily or not at all!

Anyone else experience such unpredictability? Does it get better with time or what tricks do you use to get through it?
Thank you Divas!
