Iud been in for 18months. Bleeding for 6weeks now. I pass clots so much pain. Can't bare it. What is wrong with me, emma.
Could have moved: It's rare for an iud to migrate, but it's possible. It's also unlikely for the iud to cause bleeding after having 18 months to settle in. Take a pregnancy test to be safe, and then call your gyn for an evaluation. Infections, hormone imbalances, polyps, endometriosis and fibroids are all causes of abnormal bleeding. You would need an evaluation to determine the cause for you. ...Read more

Wonderful clue: It could be coincindental but I agree it likely suggests a reason for the facial edema. I am not aware of any established explanation.

Eczema: Heavy moisturizing creams and lotions are effective for treating eczema. Examples include Neutrogena or Aquaphor.

Gravity and osmosis: Distribution of excess fluid in nephrotic syndrome is throughout the body due to loss of blood proteins that hold water in the vascular system. Osmosis then drags water to areas of higher concentration. It may show more in the face because one can notice that most easily, but is generally throughout the body. This is known as anasarca. In chf, the osmotic effect is not present, so gravity wins. ...Read more
I am swollen from my face all the way to me feet, and it is painful! I am constipated a lot too, I did enema, will that help?
Need Dr visit: Your use of 'swollen' leave me with more questions and concern than ability to help you.

If you are just 'plugged up, ' then an enema might start things moving, and may need a follow up x 1, then soften from above. Still good to see dr to determine what started problem. ...Read more
