I just started my third month of Jolessa, the generic version of Seasonale. At the end of this pack is when I’m supposed to take my first set of inactive pills.
However, yesterday I started bleeding. It’s happened before, but just spotting. Today I started a full-on period with cramps and all that fun stuff. Then this evening, I went through a super tampon in less than two hours. I was GOING to ask if I should just skip to the inactive pills since I’m bleeding anyway…
However, about five minutes ago when I took out that super tampon I mentioned, after I stood up to flush, I saw something in the bowl that wasn’t blood or toilet paper. I didn’t want to, but I put on a rubber glove and picked it up and it appears to be TISSUE of some sort.
and I took a picture because I’m disgusting and concerned.
I’m hoping someone can maybe help me identify what the hell just happened?
I’m sitting here debating on whether or not I should get in the car at 2 A.M. and drive 45 minutes to the quick care office or if I should just wait it out.
And obviously under the cut, it’s not going to be pretty.
The illogical portion of my brain is going “OMG, my uterus just fell out”.
so any help or advice or even ideas on what’s going on would be greatly appreciated. I’m a bit freaked out.
Thank you all so much for the comments and advice, links etc. My mind is totally at ease now. I slept a few hours and this morning took a pregnancy test (negative) to ease my husband’s mind that I wasn’t having a miscarriage or something.
My bleeding has come to almost a stop and my cramps and back pain are so much less severe today and I’m convinced by all of you that it’s just a thick uterine lining. Kind of cool to see what my uterus looks like… kind of gross. I almost wish I’d kept it but what does one do with that sort of thing?
Anyway, thank you THANK YOU!
