Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You need a USG now to confirm whether the product or part of it is still inside or not.This can cause this type of bizarre symptoms.If the USG reveals nothing, few courses of contraceptive pills are fine to control the bleeding as well as to get a regular established cycle.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
