Woman Issues! TMI!

I have 2 kids and they are enough for me! Before Kids I was on the pill and it worked very well for me but after having kids, the pill sent my hormones on a wild ride and I could not handle it! So I decided to go the hormone free way and had a copper IUD put in and it was great!

It's been 3 years now and lately I've been having some issues with my period. My cycles are normally very long, 1 & 1/2 month between periods and a heavy flow lasting 4-6 days, but recently the flow has been light and long. Febs lasted 2 weeks and then I only had 2 weeks free and then I got another period that has lasted for 3 weeks now!

I went to the Doctor today and he took out the IUD out, they are only supposed to last 3-5 years anyway. And he sent me for blood work to see if I am/was pregnant, my body might be having issues getting rid of anything... So if the blood work comes back positive then I have to have an ultrasound to see what is going on!

Yikes, I'm trying not to be scared or nervous but....Aaarrrggg!

Jen you might be right when you told me I was pregnant a month ago! Now it's a waiting game, 1 week. I also have to decide what I want to do for birth control, I can't have another IUD inserted till I have 2-3 normal cycles. Do I get another copper IUD or the Merina IUD that has a low dose of hormones or try the pill again or try to convince Mike to get that vasectomy.....

Vasectomy! It's a simple, almost painless procedure, then you can have your natural woman's body back again... normal cycles and no panic... but men seem to be pretty fussy about these things. Good luck, my friend!

I am thinking of you ... I had my tubes tied many years back, it was easy and I have never had problems... just a thought...

My doctor mentioned the IUD and for some reason I thought it would be icky-- I have no idea why. I was on the pill for a LONG time and was super regular, then started having peri-menopause symptoms so the doc took me off of them and now my endometrosis is back. Geesh. Just can't win. So, I have no advice...BAHAHAHAHA Sorry.
