Heavier period after year of IUD

Hey guys, so I am NOT part of the lucky ones who stopped getting a period. I get a regular period every month (I have the Jaydess IUD). It's usually very light, meaning I only need a panty liner a couple times a day and it lasts about 8 days.

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I got a pap smear last week (my first one, I'm 21) and then a few hours later my period started. I'm on day 6 and it's heavier than usual. Not extremely heavy but definitely heavier than any period i've had while having the IUD and there's little clots as well.

Again, not sure if this is relevant, but I've also been nauseous all week. I'm just wondering if I should be worried or if anyone else has had experience? I'm a huge hypochondriac so I'm trying not to worry and google too much. 

My strings are still there and feel normal and I can't imagine it's moved. But I just started worrying that my doctor moved my IUD accidentally or something during the pap smear. That's probably me overthinking, but I'm hoping someone can ease my mind.
