For The Love! Will It Never End???
So......for any guy or gal reading this who does not want to listen to me vent about my period---you need to stop reading & just go elsewhere for a minute.
So....had my D&C on 7/25. Had the cramping & bleeding after that. It stopped.
On 8/25, started bleeding again.
It's 9/5, and I'm still bleeding.
We're on day 12 of bleeding, and I'm over it. I'm ready to be done with it.
So...I thought---this period has been longer & lighter than normal. I'm sure my body is just readjusting. Just trying to reclaim that balance that it used to know.
But....I email the dr's office just in case. They have a website & you can email a nurse, which I have no problem doing. BUT---every single time that they CALL me back instead of emailing me back, I know it's not a quick or easy/simple thing that I've thought it was. So, Stephanie called me back, and Dr.B is now concerned....they need me to have blood drawn today b/c I'm still having bleeding. They want to check my beta again & "follow it down to zero." I was told that "some women continue to bleed small amounts over a longer period of time, or the continuation of the bleeding could indicate retained products of conception."
The pathology they did on my original "products of conception" indicated that they found the embryo, so I know the baby isn't still in there. What could still be in there? The endometrial lining---well, isn't that what your period IS every month?
And....if there were "retained products of conception", wouldn't I have some type of raging infection by now? I've had no fever....or other "southern" indicators of infection, so I'm sure that's not the case.
I swear it's like this whole thing just won't END.
