I know the first thing everyone will tell me is to see a doctor, but I'm not covered under insurance right now and can't afford to go. And there's not a place I can go to get help with paying the bill. I've been trying to research different possibilities as to why I have the issues I have, but I'm not a Google Search Goddess lol.
Anyways, I am 22 years old. I've been sexually active since I was 17, and have had 3 partners. About 3 years ago I was told by my doctor I have a tilted uterus. That was the last time I'd gotten an exam, so I know I'm over due on a check up, but besides that I was never told I had anything abnormal wrong with me. I've always had an irregular period until I got on birth control when I was 17 and stopped taking it about 2 years ago. My periods stayed normal up until last February(2011) when they started coming whenever. I usually only have a period for 5 days, but any more when I do have one it's at least 2 weeks. Last September I had one that lasted 28 days. I had been trying to get pregnant, so the long periods had me worried and I called the Health Department. They were rude to me and didn't care that I was trying to get pregnant and having such abnormal periods. My periods now last between 2-3 weeks.
Also, it seems like every single time I had sex, no matter how easy or rough it is, I will bleed afterwards. It's like having sex forces me into a period. And I usually do bleed for a few days. It makes having sex not enjoyable at all to have to deal with that. I'm just looking for what others may think is wrong. I'm waiting for my current bleeding cycle to be over and I'm going to call my doctor and try to get something figured out so I can get a check up, but that could still be a few days or weeks with how my luck has been with bleeding.
I would greatly appreciate no one bashing me for being 22 and trying to have a baby. I am engaged, and we've been together over 4 years. It's our choice is we want to have a baby or not and we don't deserve any ugly remarks. Thanks!
Hello, I am 27 and have 2 children, one 6 and one 3. I just recently found out myself that I have a tilted uterus. I am going through a divorce and after 10 years have a new partner. We have not had any problems till 4 days ago. It wouldn't be a big deal to me except that I too am trying to get pregnant and it kills the mood when he is so worried about me getting hurt. I went to the hospital 4 days ago and they said that it was just my period which I know for a fact that it is not. It is not the same consistency as my period, it's straight blood and it only lasts for like 2 days. I am going to be contacting a clinic tomorrow because I am extremely worried about this. I was never told about my tilted uterus before but I did have a c-section almost 4 years ago. I would try to find a free clinic or a clinic that takes donations rather than a straight fee. I don't know where you live but I am from Wyoming and there are a few where I live. Check everywhere and maybe even see if you can find a place even if you need to travel a little ways. It is important to get it checked out but make sure you ask every question that pops into your head otherwise they might just tell you something to get you out the door. If you have any questions for me personally or would like to further discuss this matter, feel free to contact me. Good luck and I hope that you and your fiance will be blessed with a child.
