So I got para guard put in last week and I'm having bleeding and cramping like a normal period would do. Is that a normal amount or too much
It's normal. If the pain gets worse, I'd call the doctor though.
When I got back in September I had cramping including in my back for the first two weeks before it subsided. Unfortunately, the bleeding never stopped for me so I ended up having it removed in February after only 5 months. Hopefully, it will work better for you. Good luck!
