Iud and random periods, am I preg?

So I'm hoping that I put this in the right section, I havent been on ivillage for a while!



I have an IUD, I have had it ever since I had my daughter (4 years). Lately I have been experiencing weird symptoms like cramping in my back and pelvis, gas, I'm tired and feel like crap basically all of the time. And to top it off, I had my period at the start of August, ending on the 5th or so, and then August 24 for a couple of days (normal flow) and then again over the last few days (sept 16- still going)

I tested myself 2 days ago and ended up with one positive digital test and three negative digital preg tests. I have scoured the internet and have mixed results regarding what this means. I have an appointment on the 22nd with my OBGYN, but does anyone know what is going on with me? I'm getting the IUD out that day as well.

I will definately let you guys know, my appointment is at 10 tomorrow morning. I actually made the appointment last week to just remove my IUD as I was feeling terrible and wanted to try taking it out to see if there was a noticiable difference.



She doesn't know that I had a positive test, but I'm going to try to get her to do a blood test because I know that there is something totally off with me. Hopefully, it itsn't anything serious, I am totally freaked about the thought of an ectopic pregnancy or cysts, or cancer of my cervix. The worst thing about this, is now that I had that positive result I wouldnt even mind being pregnant. But it doesn't really seem like a possibility at all now, especially because of the cramping and bleeding I've been having. :(

I went to see her and she sent me for bloodtests. So now I get to wait 48 hours for a result! She isn't ruling out pregnancy, but couldnt give me answers for what the problem might be. I did get my IUD removed so hopefully some of my symptoms will go away. Yesterday I basically slept all day, still feeling ill. Crossing my fingers~ Will update!

So no results back from my doc, so I guess everything is negative? It's been almost a week since I removed my IUD, and I gotta say, majority of my symptoms are going away! I'm feeling much better, and hopefully it stays that way. I guess that the IUD just wasn't right for my body.
