It depends: It depends on why u r having the prolonged bleeding. If it is just due to the change from the Nuvaring to pills, just keep taking the pills and it should get better as your body adjusts to the change which can take as much as 3 cycles. If it is something else such as an infection, another medication, a polyp, or not taking the pill right, that particular problem will need to be addressed. C your doc ...Read more

Hi I just had a baby 2 months ago I am still having light bleeding and passing clots. It mainly happens after intercourse or when drinkin hot liquids.

It is unusual: To be passing large clots. I assume u r breast feeding. The ovaries may be starting to function again and this will normalize but you may benefit from the birth control pill. Bleeding severity is notably subjective. I doubt seriously that you have retainment of placental tissue as the source but you may have fibroids, etc. I think u should get checked along with a blood count and hcg. ...Read more

This: This could possibly be an emergency situation. The bleeding has likely caused you to be anemic resulting in you being very tired. I have seen many patients that present this way that end up in the hospital getting a blood transfusion and possibly a hysterectomy. I don't want to scare you but I do want you to know the possible severity of the situation.
You may be dealing with uterine fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus), endometrial hyperplasia or tumor etc. That are the cause of the bleeding.
Being uninsured does not mean that you should go without care. Your local county hospital will be able to provide you with services for a fee that is based on your income or lack therof.
Please seek treatment right away.
All the best. ...Read more

investigated by a physician. She/he will likely rule out blood clotting problems, hormonal problems or problems with the uterus such as fibroids.
Do not worry there are many options available to you. Many options do not involve surgery therefore no interruption to your daily routine. ...Read more

Yes: Typically, this amount of bleeding is excessive; not necessarily abnormal. The brain-ovary-uterus axis is quite sensitive to a lot of things (e.g. Stress, weight changes, diet changes, etc...). Any one of these things, including a pregnancy, can alter the normal cycle. ...Read more
