So I just had a baby on January 5. Vaginal delivery but he was a premature baby. I went for me 6weeks check up on February 16 and had an IUD inserted that same day. A week later I started spotting and that lasted for about week then I started my actually period it lasted it normal 7 days. That was on a Sunday that I stopped and on Monday came down with the flu and strep throat and now suddenly I am bleeding again and it's not just spotting and I'm also have a clear mucus looking discharge but you can clearly see blood in the discharge!! I'm so frustrated I am so over this bleeding and having to wear pads.... what could cause this and what should I do??? Please help!!
Unscheduled bleeding or spotting is common after inserting an IUD.This is also common after delivery.So, do not get upset as this is a normal thing.But if the flow is heavy or persistent; you definitely meet your GP.You might need a clinical examination then to comment further.
