Thanks for your question.

Slight bleeding or spotting after pap smear and after IUD removal is normal.This can last for 1 week or so.

At times some collected blood can also cause spotting.

Therefore you have nothing to worry.

If this continues after 1 week it would be advisable to have a doctor take a look.
