Swollen

So I'm currently a little late on my period but my cycle is very irregular or (previously, as of 5 months ago) nonexistent due to the mirena IUD. I took a pregnancy test today, 16 days after I last had sex, and it was negative. I've said this on here before but my partner and I also use condoms very...

Helping a friend

So my friend just went through a really horrible, awful thing. A guy she was with crossed previously established boundaries and he ended up putting his penis in her a few times to try and "get her into it" despite her saying she absolutely didn't want to do that. She is handling this situa...

Re: Bleeding... again

I told my provider that I qanted to make sure things looked ok and seemed in place because just randomly bleeding freaked me out quite a bit. Im wondering if I should maybe call them because I am bleeding more, but I'm in a totally different city because im back in school for the semester. Is there ...

Bleeding... again

Hello again. About a month ago I posted about random bleeding starting up after no bleeding 2 years into having the mirena IUD. Today Im starting my period again?!?! And it's heavier this time too. It's still not "heavy", but it's more than just a drop or two of blood on toilet paper after...

Re: Weird bleeding

Looking at Mirena's own information about bleeding or spotting, they don't discuss why it might specifically happen after not occurring for most of the past couple years, only that it's possible and is often irregular. I do think this is likely to fall under the "irregular" umbrella and n...

Re: Weird bleeding

It's not unusual to experience some spotting or light bleeding with an IUD, even if you've gone a while without experiencing it. I think it's great that you have an appointment coming up, but nothing you've described sounds like a sign of any underlying issue with your IUD. Hopefully your doctor ca...

Re: Weird bleeding

How long have you had the IUD? Your last topic mentioned no bleeding for two years but this one says two months? If you've only had the IUD for a couple of months, this is likely just your body still adjusting to the IUD and coming to a hormonal balance. If you've had the IUD for a while, spotting ...

Weird bleeding

I posted on here a few months ago that I hadn't had any sort of bleeding for the last 2 months on my mirena IUD. Well, as of last night, I'm having spotting to light bleeding. What the heck is going on??? I have a gyno appointment in two days to get things checked out but I am concerned it could be ...

IUD

It's been a while since I've posted on here and I have changed my birth control from the pill to the Mirena IUD. I absolutely love the IUD and I stopped getting my period about 2 years ago because of it. I recently started being sexually active again with my boyfriend and I was wondering if, because...

Re: IUD and the pill?

If I may add to this as well, I had horrendous cramps and, pardon the gross thing I’m about to say, a waterfall of blood every time I’d get my period on the pill. I had a very poor experience with the pill, so I switched to the IUD!! No bleeding, and my cramps are now pretty minimal. However, that’s...

Re: Not sure if what happened was abuse

That makes sense! The one other thing that I'm really struggling with contemplating is that I feel like I'm making too big of a deal about what happened or that what I felt was made up or something. However, I know my emotions were genuine and I did feel hurt. Still, i feel stuck with whether or not...

Re: Not sure if what happened was abuse

Thank you so much again! I will definitely read those articles! I have one final question, I'm really confused as to why I just feel so bad about everything that happened. I know I wasn't a perfect girlfriend by any means and that there were things in the relationship that I could've improved on, bu...

Something I forgot to add, after a few weeks, it felt like all he cared about was sex. I'd tell him I was exhausted from work or school, but he'd still try to get me to say yes by kissing me or trying to take my clothes off. This happened maybe once or twice, and I did say yes, but I didn't feel go...

Not sure if what happened was abuse

I just recently got out of a relationship with my ex-boyfriend. It's the same guy I've talked about on previous posts. Hes no longer a good person in my eyes and many of my friends' eyes as well; he smokes weed and drinks constantly and is just a very angry person. But, I've been having a lot of dou...

Re: Late pill

Okay thank you! I looked up the finer details of my pill and it said for any ONE pill missing for 24 hours or over there was no need to take ec or even use back up contraception(I still will of course) so I think especially because I did take the pill within 24 hours I'll be okay with not getting ec...

Re: Late pill

Sorry, one final thing! Is it really that necessary to take it? I don't want to goof up my cycle because that may make me worry more. Also, since I still did have a condom and at least some of my pill working, should I even bother?

Re: Late pill

I know that there's always a risk due to any sort of penetration, but we had vaginal sex for such a short period of time. Also I'm very sure nothing leaked out of the condom when he did ejaculate. Would that improve my likelihood of being okay? And about how much is plan B? Can I take it alongside m...

Re: Late pill

I took the pill as soon as I could, that's what the instructions said. I didn't actually miss the pill so I didn't take two at a time, which it says to do if you miss it. It doesn't give any additional information on what to do if youre late with just one pill, other than you should just take it whe...

Late pill

Last week Friday, July 21st, I took a pill late by about 13 hours. This past evening, the night of the 27th, my boyfriend and I had vaginal sex for about five minutes with a condom on before we switched to anal, which he finished with inside me, still with a condom. I'm pretty sure the condom didn't...

The past few days I've been having a frequent urge to urinate despite having literally just urinated or not drinking much water. It's not like a full-on or constant feeling, it just feels weird often throughout the day. Plus, it has burnt or genuinely hurt on rare occasion. I finished my withdrawl b...

I'll probably talk to my parents about not clicking well with this therapist so hopefully I can find a better one. Thank you for the article though!
