I was still having boold clots at day 10, finally it subsided. But having intercourse with my husband or having a bowel movement aggravates it. I hope this will subside as my doc assures me.

I had cramps for the first 3 days that were like a period, very little bleeding though. I have since experienced some abdominal pain the last 2 days. Going to give it some time but if it continues I will have it out and get my tubes tied instead. I did this so I could have ... Show Full Comment
