New member (long time lurker) + NSAIDS for bleeding

Hi to all you fabulous IUD carries who made my choice to get an IUD so much more informed and knowledgeable.

The basics are 21, nullipara female in a 4 year long-term relationship. I received the Cu380 Copper IUD nearly 2 weeks previously, after having been on the pill (various brands + yasmin) for 5 years. Decided to quit because I learned of my family history of breast cancer as well as having developed mild hypertension (pretty scary for me as I am young with a healthy BMI, non-smoker and vego/vegan for 5 years etc). The longer version of this and a short term update can be found here.

Anyhoo, I've done a lot of research into IUDs as I am a bit weird in that I need to research things HEAPS before I made a decision and also my job provides me with the necessary resources. I digress, I found a table I thought was very helpful. It is from a pretty nifty website that has a bunch of current medical info about IUD use and the problems that can be associated etc. This table outlines the various dosages of NSAIDS recommended to relieve from the heavy bleeding/cramping combo that can come with IUD usage.

I know some people weren't sure about the specific dosages/brands stuff and I really thought that was nice, clear and specific.

Sorry for the long post, and nice to finally be a part of this awesome community.
