Ok, so I had a baby 8 months ago, and got the Paragard IUD inserted 6 weeks after my baby was born. I haven't had a period since. Well, over the past few months, I've checked the strings, and have noticed that they have lowered/moved dramatically, and I feel like my uterus might be prolapsing as well.
Well, a week ago Wednesday, I started cramping really bad, and checked the strings, and noticed that I could feel the entire IUD. A day later, I started a really heavy period, and it's still going heavy. I go through a tampon every hour... I have a doctor appointment scheduled, but it's not until next Thursday.
I'm nervous and I'm just wondering if anybody else has gone through this, and if I should really be as worried as I am?
Sorry if this is tmi...
