I had the Essure done about 6 years ago and I usually have a period for 4-5 days and the last two days are mainly spotting and cramps on the first day. I've now been on my period for 9 days but it's not any heavy bleeding but it's bright red. If I have clots it's usually on the 2-3rd day which are the heaviest. I've had small meaty looking clots. I'm cramping and have some back pain. I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative but I feel like something's not right. Are these symptoms of ectopic pregnancy?

Ectopics also have pregnancy tests positive and thus as the test is negative, ectopic can be ruled out.This persistent flow could be due to any temporary hormonal disturbances inside you and subside by its own.Just wait for 3 days more and if the flow is not subsiding you might need some medicines to stop it.Meet your GP for an evaluation.
