I've been worrying all week. I found blood in my urine so the I went to see the doctor who acted quickly for me. I had a slight infection but just to be sure, I was referred to the hospital and on Friday, I went for a Cystoscopy. Thankfully my bloods were okay, (kidney and iron levels), and my bladder is fine. There was still a trace of blood in my urine so routinely, I'm being referred for a CT scan. Fingers crossed there is nothing to be found and everything is okay. I'm a worrier but I'm pleased the doctors just want to be sure.
What is worrying me just as much, if not more, is that I've been spotting blood for over a week as if I'm having a period. I've done this before but this time is upsetting me. Everything down below is scaring me. The blood started off as dark/old but is now pink/red but it's because I'm still slightly spotting that I'm so upset, even though, again, I've had similar events before. I have had the Mirena coil for about four years now and given that my periods were extrememly heavy before, it's no surprise that occasionally I'll get a bleed over so many days. It's because I'm on high health alert that any rational thinking has gone out of the window. I'm having PMS symptoms that are all over the place, could this cause the spotting? If I wipe and it's clear, I feel less anxious but if the pink/red blood is present, I go back down again. It's been about nine days now and it is less but sometimes it's still there.
I've been feeling brilliant for a while. My sex drive has returned big time, poor hubby looks half scared of me sometimes. I'm glad it's back, it made me realise just how long it's been missing. I only have to look at a picture of him and I'm off. It is funny but at the same time I'm glad I have it again, although pleasantly surprised. I've started with losing weight and feel so much happier for doing something about it. I hate feeling so helpless with the health alert and now I'm scared I'll need to go back to the doctors and have even more tests.
I use small Tena pads anyway and the blood isn't a full period, to be honest a panty liner would be fine. I hope someone can understand what I mean here. Has anyone else had spotting like this while having the coil or even without one?
Thanks for reading my post.
