For the past week, I have been bleeding, accompanied by mild abdominal pain and discomfort, a weird pressure feeling. I’m currently not on any birth control (in the process of getting back on it) but I don’t think I’m pregnant.
I had a hormonal IUD for 2.5 years and had it swapped for a copper IUD at the beginning of May. I experienced horrible periods and was planning on having it removed, but it expelled itself on July 30. I was leaving for vacation and was unable to see my doctor, but I finally got in to see her on September 10. We discussed what had happened, what the next steps were going to be and decided that I would start the pill, after coming back to see her for blood work and a pregnancy test the following week. On septmeber 17, I had light spotting, but I wasn’t concerned about it. I had sex with my boyfriend that night, and again in the morning, but that morning it hurt(which is unusual) and when we stopped, there was a LOT of blood. I initially panicked but I had just started school and was in the process of finding an apartment, so I chalked it up to being and early period due to stress. I bled from that Tuesday on, Saturday night the blood slowed, it was very light on Sunday. Yesterday(Monday) morning was just a single clot so I figured it was over with. We avoided having sex the whole week, so we tried again yesterday and once again there was a lot of pain and a lot of blood. I now realize this is NOT just an early period and I’m trying to get in to see my doctor ASAP. I woke up this morning and there is still blood, enough that I have to use a pad.
Has anyone ever experience anything like this before??
