been spotting since the hysteroscopy/lap I had done on the 4th... but this evening it turned more bright reddish. Wonder if I'm getting a withdrawal bleed (period) from stopping the birth control. Dr wanted me to keep taking for a few more days, but I just cant handle the migraines and the leg pain it causes.
I'm getting some mild cramping so I'm starting to feel that maybe this is AF showing up. I really need to know because I'm slotted for new labs on cd3 PLUS I'm traveling on Wedensday.... GRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! I guesss I'll see what tomorrow looks like! Hopefully I get full flow (I'll just get labs done wed before I hit the road) so I have no stress while traveling.

it sounds to me like a combination of a withdrawal bleed and also a reaction to the surgery .. my clinic always tells me that any surgery they do doesn't affect my cycle .. and yet it always did!  I would get scantish bleeding that wouldn't ever really develop into a full flow but my hormone levels showed that it was indeed af .. just a bit of a screwed up one!

I hate birth control too and just refused to go on it .. I said they need to find another treatment and that was that .. it makes me feel yuck too!

I hope that you manage to get your labs done before you go .. good luck honey!

I guess I was lucky after my lap/hyster.  I was also on birth control leading up to it and the day of surgery was when I stopped taking them.  I had bleeding for 2 days after the surgery then it stopped and had a full 5 day period about 3 weeks later.  I'm sorry it's messing with you so much and it ***** also when there's traveling to do. :(   Hopefully it'll all be outta here and over with by that time.  Sending you big hugs!!

I also had a full AF only about 7 days after HSG.  I see many people have the same thing so it isn't uncommon.
