It is not recommended to start with IUDs for management of heavy menstrual bleeding unless there are contraindications to use of estrogen containing COCs or progestin- only therapy like Depo Provera or Aygestin. It is a bit extreme to me to consider an IUD up front, but it is part of the conversation at the beginning if other less invasive therapies do not work.
