Hi ladies, I was wondering if anyone else had had an experience like mine (didn't want to trail through the whole forum). I had my loop done on March 6th, and everything seemed fine, had period the day after and after that there was just brown discharge (tmi, sorry!). So fast forward exactly 2 weeks, and the bleeding started to get heavier very quickly, and I was getting horrible stabbing pains in my stomach, but not cramp. I had an emergency appointment with my Dr, and she said that the bleeding was so heavy that she couldn't see anything when she had a look, so she gave me antibiotics and sent me on my way. Later on that night, the pains went away, but the bleeding was so heavy that I was going through a pad in 30mins! I called 111 who sent me a paramedic and I was taken to hospital. One Dr in A&E told me that I had an infection, and that they would keep me overnight, then after checking my blood test they decided it wasn't an infection and that I could go home after they sealed me with silver nitrate.
The Dr got down there to do it and he said 'it's more serious than I thought' (great!) and that he couldn't stop the bleeding. So I ended up staying overnight. The next day I was told it wasn't an infection, and that the original 'seal' had probably come away. I then had the area frozen, which was very painful for some reason, and told it should stop after that, which it didn't. It's a few days on now and it has started to slow down for the moment, and I'm home with a couple of lots of antibiotics to take.
I had been very careful not to do anything you're not supposed to, so I've no idea why this has happened. I have seen ladies on here before having to go to hospital because of the bleeding, but that they were sealed up and sent home. I've not seen too many people who had to stay in hospital for days waiting for it to stop! Has anyone else experienced this?
Sorry about the long post ladies x
