Serious first paragard period concerns!!
I've been reading this site here and there thanks to Google and I can't find any help so I decided to join.
I got the Paragard last month while on my period. The insertion was easy and I didn't bleed almost at all afterwards. It stopped my period. Up unitl maybe a week ago I've had no spotting then all of a sudden I just felt super tired, and was spotting brown. I started with some cramps here and there but I figured that was normal right before my period. Last night I went to my boyfriends for some *fun* hoping that it would help kick start things. Well turns out I just got intense cramps this morning then another *fun* session led to some bright red blood but it stopped after we had sex. Then the red spotting started again but not enough for a pad and a tampon killllls to be in me and hurts even more trying to take it out.
So I was suppose to start my period today and so far all I have had is off and on red spotting, intense back ache, sharp, tight cramps and I'm kind of freaking out about being pregnant because i'm still not use to not taking something every day knowing it's preventing it.
Is this normal? Is this my period? I'm usually on time like clockwork with no spotting before or half the pain.
