How do you know if your IUD is dislodged / being expelled
After sex with my boyfriend yesterday, which was a little rougher than normal, I found just a little blood in my underwear a few hours later with only a few mild cramps (this could have just been post-sex cramps though because it sometimes happens...) Good news is that small amount of blood stopped last night, but my mind constantly is overthinking, and since we didn't use a condom for the majority of the time, of course I'm worrying a little because there's always those what-ifs and we almost always use a condom.. like what if my IUD is dislodged now, making it ineffective when I needed it? (although he still didn't finish inside me)
How do you know it's being expelled by the strings? Will there be an insane amount of string curled up there? Will the cramps be excruciating? Will I be gushing blood?
I simply just don't know what I'd expect if it was dislodged or in the process of being expelled.
I haven't gotten my IUD checked at all since it was inserted in March so hopefully can schedule an appointment soon to make sure everything is okay..
