Recently my husband and I decided to start trying for children and I went off my bc. I was I on Depo for 7 years (yes yes I know your all cringing) I finally went on seasonique lo a couple months before I went off bc completly. Its been about six months since I last took bc and a fews months ago after a cross country drive I noticed I had some rectal bleeding. I assumed since travel might have left me a little constipated I really didnt think much of it. But when it continued I went to the gastro and had a colonoscopy scheduled. Unfortunatly when I found out I was going to have to come out of pocket 600 dollars I was not able to do it. But then I made a connection and noticed that the rectal bleeding always happened around my random periods. It usually would start right before my period and end a little bit after. Several people I talked to about this mentioned endometriosis but it seems the symptoms of that are painful periods etc. I dont have any pain with my periods but they have not been normal since I stopped bc they are random, unpredictable and heavy. Has anybody had this issue? Could it be a Depo side effect? I'm not even sure what doctor I should be going to...gastro, gyno, or primary? Any advice?
