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.....
