I had my mirena IUD taken out oct 21st 2013.. and my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex from November 2 - the 18th of November. Came in me 15xs.
I thought I may be pregnant until the 24th of November, my foster sis kicked me in the stomach and I freaked out to point and (I hope this isn't too much info but it may help with my question).. I checked my area with my finger to see if I was bleeding. She didn't kick me wicked hard but I panicked and checked anyway. I noticed I had like a light pink colored creamy type of CM on my finger. It went from, that to redish brown to brown. It was like that from 10am that day and then it stopped.
Then around 12am the next day 11/25 I went to the bathroom and a small (no bigger then a dime)dark red blood clot came out along with red bleeding it was like that for a while the bleeding that is.. I believe it was every few hours ( 3 hrs maybe 4 didn't really keep track ) I'd expel red blood. Off and on kind of like a medium/lightish period. I did notice toward the end of the day it kind of seemed like more hours would go before I would even expel anymore blood.
Well today is now the 26th I hadn't been feeling well the last 2 days. Been kind of dizzy feeling, and sick to my stomach, my breasts even hurt some they don't hurt today. But they hurt like hell yesterday. And I have had some stomach cramps today nothing severe thou.
BUT I woke up around 3:30ishpm and when I finally got up to pee I think I expel a little bit of blood. But now around 5:16pm I went to the bathroom again and I noticed I didn't expel any Blood in fact when I wiped I saw some pinkish smears on the tp. Have not had anymore red blood sense 3:30pm its now 7:45pm. Still having a feeling like I'm about to bleed again but still no bleed...
Until 7:55pm I spotted like 2-3 drops of red blood. Then nothing.
Then again same thing around 8:55pm. Just spotting. Not even enough to turn the toilet water any color.
Its now 2:39am 11/27/13 and its pretty much been either spotting like it was around 8:55pm or just the pinkish smear on the TP when I wipe. last time I went to the bathroom it was only pinkish smear on the TP no blood or anything sense 2 25am.
Last time I bled was around 12:30am. Now it seems like there's no bleeding at all thou.
(A Friend of mine told me to keep track of the bleeding. So that's why everything has a time )
My breasts have also started hurting again too..
I'm just wondering what are the chances of me being pregnant?
I have read a lot of stories about people having what seems like a period then turn out to be pregnant!! If you experienced this and then found out you were pregnant. what was it like for you ??? and when did you find out you were pregnant ??
This is also my first bleeding sense Having the mirena out as well.
If there is a chance of pregnancy I'm just curious when should I take a test just to check and see..?
Heres added updates sense this was written.....
11/27 6:30am still no bleeding. only smears or pinkish or redish color on tp or nothing when i wipe
7:40am smear of blood on tp after wiping.
10:45am spotted a dab of blood. no bigger then a nickel.
12:06pm red blood smear on Tp..
3:50pm Reddish brown smear on Tp just enough to show color.
( my friend told me to keep track of the bleeding for the gyno so I'm doing that )
I also have some lil cramping that comes and goes. Nothing painful and I wouldn't say it was like period cramps. seems to be more around my uterus then my sides/hips.
Hi & welcome to Pregnancy.org!
While I personally have not had experience with the Mirena -- Cynthia Flynn, our expert midwife has shared several experiences of women that did get pregnant shortly after removal. From what I could find, many ob/gyn's seem to recommend waiting one full cycle after removal to lower risk of miscarriage. (Always talk to *your* personal medical provider for their advice given your particular medical history.) That being said, this could also be your body's attempt to readjust your cycle. There simply is no way to tell for sure without testing.
A few things --
1) My hope is that your foster sis kicked you accidentally. If intentionally - I hope that you have returned to a safer environment not only for yourself but any future child.
2) If you and your boyfriend are trying to conceive, while it may seem like odd advice you may actually want to 'rest' for action every other (or 3rd) day and enable his sperm count to rejuvenate. You can find this and more within Top 10 Strategies for Getting Pregnant
3) Please don't worry too much about keeping track of the bleeding down to the hour or minute. Simply knowing that the bleeding ranged from very light trace amounts to passing a dime size red clot and a few hours bleeding that tapered off is generally as specific as your doctor would need to know.
4) To answer your question on testing -- since this is your first cycle after having the Mirena removed there isn't a good way to track when your ovulation date would have been. As it has been approximately 5 weeks after removal, I *think* you would be fine to go ahead and test. If it is negative, wait one week and test again. Remember, at any time - your doctor is there to help and can answer your questions / concerns.
At this stage, there are so many various scenarios that are possible. This could be your body's first period as it attempts to find a new norm after the IUD removal. Yes, there is that chance of pregnancy -- in which case the bleeding could be implantation... *or* -- it could sadly be the result of an early loss. Again, the only way to tell either way is to test and pay a visit to your ob/gyn or midwife if you have additional concerns.
I wish you only the best! Please do come back and update when you are able!

wow that was a lot, ty you very much for answering my question I think I'll be testing in a few days. I'm also thinkin about calling my Gyno too.. Monday.. I think they are closed Friday. and ok I think I'll stop tracking it now lol.
You're welcome! This time is exciting, stressful, and definitely a rollercoaster ride like none other! Good luck!
My so called AF was very weird and I'm still having sore breasts after it ended. I'm sick to my stomach alot so Nauseous that I almost end up throwing up.. food sometimes helps and sometimes doesnt., have some dizzy spells, my breasts get sore sometimes its like " omg put the fire out " , they are a lil bigger too, and I think idk its hard to tell cus I had twins june 24th 2011 so my areolas were already kinda dark BUT i think they may have gotten darker, and they seem a lil mmm perkier then usual, I'm very tired even when i woke up im tired lol.
extra emotional.. i mean i almost cried cus the pizza i had in my room for dinner went missing lol. I actually called my dads cell a million times and paged my parents at walmart to figure out where it went I was like really upset over pizza lmfao I almost cried ahah. turned out it was in front of my tv the whole time never saw it my lil foster sis moved it cus my daughter was tryin toget at it LMAO,
I'm also kinda moody, I still have a kinda pressure like feelin like im gonna gush any minute BUT my AF ( if it was AF ) is over, And I'm still alittle crampy nothing major just dull cramps here and there around the hips/uterus..
Some weird tringy throbbing type feeling around my cervix that's the best way I can describe it, and it only lasts for a few seconds..
Occasionally headaches - not alot thou.
and i noticed when i brushed my teeth lastnight that my gums were bleeding and the only time I have ever seen em do that is when i use a new toothbrush and well it wasnt new. And i dont have gindivitis however you spell it lol.
my appetite changed all of a sudden.
I noticed some smells that didnt normally make me queezy now are. :/
I also had this weird feeling suddenly come over me..i don't know how to explain it except this way
it feels almost like a relaxed feeling, with a cool breezy type feeling..kinda had me smiling just out of the blue..
like Awwwwww wow feeling haha. Never felt this before. But its kinda nice. anybody ever felt something kinda like this.
Sounds like your best bet at this stage is simply to take a home pregnancy test. If negative, wait one more week. If you cycle still has not returned then you may wish to schedule an appointment with your medical caregiver to be sure either way.
Which answer are you hoping for?
