Not likely: If you haven't missed any pills then the likelihood of you being pregnant is very low. It can be normal to have some breakthrough bleeding, even on the birth control pill. Chance of pregnancy using birth control perfectly over course of year is around 4-6%, so pretty low. But not zero. Good luck! ...Read more

Unlikely: this likely represents old blood. Your endometrium hasn't had time to grow enough to be sloughed off as of yet. I would discuss with your GYN when you can expect your next period. What you are having now is old blood from the D&C. ...Read more

I have been on my period bleeding brown blood for 8 days and I have the copper IUD for 5 years should I be worried?what could this mean?
It Depends: I am sorry to hear about the bleeding. The brown blood is likely just old blood that is now leaving your body. Likely this will pass with time (about another 3-4 days). But if you have lower abdominal pain, tenderness or a fever (>101.3F or 38.5C) then I would be concerned. If you continue to bleed for more than 14 days or if you develop a fever (>101.3F) or have abdominal pain than see a doc. ...Read more

Maybe (not) . . .: Can't really speculate as to whether you're pregnant or not. To save anxiety, just take over-the-counter home pregnancy test available at most grocery or drug stores (at least in the states - not so sure about uk). But since you're worried, that means you really need to chat w/your gp about birth control options. Also need to make your partner wear condom each & every time to lower std risk. ...Read more
