IUD cramping after BM...sorry, need advice...

Hi, I'm new to the community, but I wanted to thank all you ladies for the great info and all your stories; and to appologize for the typos and misspellings, phones are not meant to be substitutes for computers sometimes.

I also wanted to see if any of you ladies have had a similar experience to mine, if my situation is normal, or if I should be genuinely concerned.

I've had a copper IUD for 2 years, had a horrendous time after insertion for about the first 2 months, but I absolutely LOVE having my IUD. My periods fluctuate between heavy to moderate, month to month, and I have no other problems beside the following:

So, for the last 2 or 3 weeks, maybe a month, I've began to have cramps after EVERY bowel movement. Sorry for the TMI, but I really don't know if this is normal. I'm also a grad student between insurances right now,so a trip to my gyno would probably be equivalent to my meals for the next few weeks,so gotta be sure I'm really in need of an appointment and not over exagerating.

The pain starts AFTER the BM, never during. It's usually more on the left side, like I can pin point the exact spot I feel things at. I don't know if it's just because of the muscle contractions.I've also noticed pink (blood) discharge after sex.

Today, I'm having a feeling in my uterus, not necessarily pain. I mean, there is some pain, like cramping, but there's also a weird feeling, and the best way I can describe it, is when you have a sticker in your foot, and you are so uncomfortable, but you know that you'll have sweet reliefe when it's out.I feel like I just want to rip this thing out!!!

I have my suspicions of whats going on, I don't want to admit them, but I just need the opinion of some ladies in my shoes. My fiancee freaks out any time I have a hang nail so its hard to consult him when he wants to take out loans and sell our souls for a doctors appointment I may not need 😅

Have any of you ladies had the same experience? What was the cause, how was the issue mediated?
