Issues lately.

Aug 05, 2014 - 7 comments

Lately have been having some issues, I was going through a normal pack of BC pills, I missed two days in a row and started to bleed like a period just a few weeks after having finished my last. The bleeding stopped, then the next month I missed the first pill of the pack and started bleeding just a few days after ending my period, so I was thinking maybe it was just a breakthrough bleed from missing a pill. I went to the ER thinking maybe I had a bladder infection since I was also having cramps and lower back pain, no infection. So lately I've been randomly getting period like cramps and will randomly spot here and there. So not sure what's going on, I get ahold of my doctor, because I'm also getting really tired, and losing some hair. The last few days or so I'm noticing if I sit down/bend down for too long, I'll stand up and have pressure in my back/butt and a little uterine pain. My doctor was thinking maybe fibroids? Any input on what it could be? I have an u/s that I will be getting within the next couple of weeks, just waiting on an appt.

I had fibroids I bleed a entire year . the whole time ob kept giving me bcp . I finally had to have a dnc for fibroids /polyps I think if its not fibroids then bcp or thyroid ??? hope you get answers soon.

Definitely sounds like the BC you are on isn't working for you. It may be fibroids but it could simply be that this BC doesn't agree with you and all you need to do is switch to another brand.

I had issues similar to this with an old BC. I had been on it years and suddenly all these symptoms started happening - random bleeding/spotting and pain. Switches to a different type and I was okay.

my biggest concern with whatever is going on is that it's causing pressure in my lower back and butt, and at the same time my uterus, that's worrying me. I had my thyroid checked and it was perfect, not sure what to think I've never had this problem before!

Hmmm I would see about switching your bcp. It could definitely be that. But yeah could also be fibroids.

I hope it's nothing serious

I'm going in to see my OB/GYN today so hopefully he gives me some insight on it!
