For a couple weeks, my body has been doing some strange things.
1. I haven’t had a period in 2 months. My preiods have been irregular in the past so this didn’t come as a surprise. I had though they were starting to be regular, but I guess not.
2. Very light bleeding (spotting) for the past couple days.
3. Last weekend I had what I would describe as a UTI. Burning, pain urinating, etc. But I took an AZO pill and it went away and never came back.
I have an IUD (copper) and I’m also taking antibiotics for my skin. My acne has been more noticeable in the past few weeks but nothing huge.
Another thing is that I feel like my hormones are going crazy. I feel angry and sad a lot. I have no interest in sex at all. I haven’t had a lot of stress lately so I don’t feel like that’s a valid factor.
I made a doctor’s appt for Monday, but I really want some insight before then.

@alaska_99705: If you think it’s a hormonal thing that would probably explain the spotting. I think the only thing you can do is get checked out by a doctor, they’ll tell you if your hormone levels are wonky.

@alaska_99705: Have you taken a pregnancy test lately? I would take one to rule that out first as some of your symptoms could be pregnancy related.

I haven’t taken a pregnancy test purely because I have an IUD and would assume I’m not pregnant. But I know it could happen.

How long have you had the IUD? I have an IUD and I have no periods. When I first got it I had light spotting but after having it for 3-4 months I had no period at all. I never had any hormonal or other issues but a co worker had an IUD and had it taken out b/c she said it messed with her hormones…..talk to you dr

@STB Ms.Win: Ditto!
PP, take a PG test first to rule that out. Also, you could have a hormonal imbalance going on; if you’re not PG, I’d call your primary care to get looked at.

I’m no doctor, but this is the first thing that came to mind:
If you get a clean bill of health from your gyno and you’re still having problems, it might be time to check your thyroid levels.

@sn2bmrsmntgmry: I’ve had the non-hormonal IUD for almost 4 years.

I was also thinking PCOS, because I have a couple (not all) of the symptoms. It would just seem strange that it came out of nowhere like it did.
