Heavy Periods

I am 26 yrs old and have 2 kids. I have the loop after my second child. My periods are much heavier and lasts for 2 weeks, but 2/3 days later I still bleed a little. I have period pains 30 days a month. And I heard that I can still get pregnat with the loop.
What should I do?

Heavy and painful periods are side effects of the loop. You could try a different type of contraception such as the Pill or injectable. All of these have a small failure rate, but less than 1%.
