symptoms? IUD removed, started new BC pack

User Profile
Okay I have been on the birth control pill for a year now, on Monday May 19th 2014 I was supposed to start my period and I got the skyla IUD placed, I didn't start until Wednesday May 21st but it was light and just brown not normal. On Friday May 23rd the IUD was out of place so I got it removed and that night I had sex with my boyfriend no condom and I also started a new pack of birth control pills.
Now I have a few pregnancy / hormone symptoms: nausea fatigue bloated cravings moody emotional sore and heavy breast tender nipples, and I'm not supposed to have a period until Friday Jun 20th but on Jun Thursday 12th when I wiped I had really light pink watery blood on the tissue with mild weird cramps that don't feel like period cramps, then it stopped, then this morning on Saturday Jun 14th I had brown with a little red tint on the tissue when I wiped same symptoms I'm just wondering what is going on and what I should do please help me!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment if the bleeding/spotting symptoms that you describe are due to removal of IUD resulting in withdrawal bleeding, or due to breakthrough bleeding after use of pills, or due to your periods getting precipitated early due to orgasm resulting in uterine contractions and endometrial separation without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. The recent symptoms that you describe can also be due to pregnancy possibility or hormonal disturbances caused after taking the hormonal birth control pills. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further examination, evaluation, clarification and assistance. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
