Diva Cup + Copper IUD

I've been a diva cup user for about six years (oh geez, has it been that long?) and three months ago I had a copper IUD inserted. My gyno ok'd the Diva cup + IUD combination and boy am I glad that she did - I don't think that I could handle the heaviness of what my period is now without one. Of course, having the diva cup means that I know roughly how many oz I'm expelling (gushing) post IUD.

To fellow Diva Cup + IUD users: How much did your period increase? (This isn't a question ppl who don't use menstrual cups would be able to answer, which is why it's posted here.)

To fellow Diva Cup users who have heavy periods: Does my post IUD heaviness seem within the realm of normal to you?

My period before IUD:
2 days of 1/2 oz (filled cup) every 12 hours
1 day of 1/4 oz every 12 hours
1 day of spotting (discharge)

My period post IUD:
2 days of 1/2 oz (filled up) every 3 hours
2 days of 1/2 oz (filled up) every 6 hours
1 day of 1/4 oz every 12 hours
1-2 days of spotting (discharge)

It just seems like my increase is an intense one, but then my period was light to begin with.

Thank you!
