I had the cooper coil put in in june 2013, since then I have had almost constant bleeding and it is still continuing is this normal?

IUD problems: Bleeding that is constant or heavier can be a complication of iud's. In general, a physician would determine the extent of the bleeding by doing an examination and blood tests to determine if you are developing anemia. If it is found that the bleeding is causing complications, then in general the iud is removed. ...Read more

What effect does breast fat have on coopers droop?

What effect does breast fat have on coopers droop?

Weight not fat: Cooper's droop is an expression referring to breast sag. The cooper's ligaments hold and support the breast. Excessive weight on the ligaments will over time cause stretching and sag. Whether the weight comes from fat or engorged milk glands it is the unsupported load on the ligaments that cause them to stretch over time. The solution is to wear a properly fitted and supportive bra every day. ...Read more

I'm young and already have saggy breasts. I know the coopers ligament is responsible for breasts shape. Can anything be done to strengthen the ligament?

I'm young and already have saggy breasts. I know the coopers ligament is responsible for breasts shape. Can anything be done to strengthen the ligament?

Sagging breasts: Hi. You can minimize this. For instance, the study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that a high BMI and a history of smoking were risk factors for breast sagging. Also, avoid yo-yo dieting. But exercises and certain bras really don't help with delaying the inevitable. You should consult with a plastic surgeon for more information. ...Read more

I 'm breastfeeding & I placed cooper iud last October & since then I'm having spotting & some bleeding between my periods which usualy 7 days every 26?

Might need more time: The copper IUD, unfortunately, can cause some irregular periods or intermittent bleeding or spotting. Usually receive this resolved after about six months to 12 months. In your case it seems like there hasn't been much of an improvement in the past few months. I would recommend trying to wait if you more months and if there's no improvement you have the option of using a different IUD. ...Read more

Bleeding and intense menstrual pain caused after sex with over a year old cooper IUD. Is that normal? My period doesn't even start for another 4 days

I'm trying to get pregnant my cycle is of 21 days I'm very regular. I had a Cooper IUD For 7 Month And I removed on Nov 18 and since then I'm trying but nothing.... This month I had my normal period on Dec 4 and I started spotting a brown discharge on Dec

I'm trying to get pregnant my cycle is of 21 days I'm very regular. I had a Cooper IUD For 7 Month And I removed on Nov 18 and since then I'm trying but nothing.... This month I had my normal period on Dec 4 and I started spotting a brown discharge on Dec

This is expected: While over 95% of women who wish to conceive do so following the removal of an IUD, only about half of them conceive within the first three months following IUD removal. It simply takes a while for your menstrual cycle and the uterine environment to be fully ready for a pregnancy. The fact you only had the IUD for 7 months means your wait to conceive may be shorter. Good luck! ...Read more

There may or may not be an identifiable cause, but you should consider seeing a neurologist to help work this up, especially if it's associated with visual impairment, weakness, headache, dizziness or neck stiffness or pain.
