Exam: It is possible that your IUD has shifted but an exam would be necessary in order to know for sure and would be an opportunity to look for other causes if this isn't the reason you are having the bleeding and your partner had pain in his penis with intercourse. Hope this helps.

A 47-year-old member asked:
Are salt levels and potassium levels in the blood related?

Yes, and no.: Sodium and potassium are both positive elements that when combined with negative chloride molecules make salts that are both important parts of serum, and potassium in particular an important element in red blood cells (nb: sea water is very similar in composition to our blood). Abnormalities of potassium (hypo or hyperkalemia) or sodium (hypo/hypernatremia) are very distinct entities.

No smoking: Oral contraceptives can be associated with blood clots in the lungs (dvts) or lungs (pulmonary embolisms) and one of the bigger risk factors is smoking, especially over the age of 35. I am not aware of studies that show Aspirin (asa) decreases the risk of blood clots while on oral contraceptives.
