I've been on nuvaring for about seven months or so and have never had any problems with it until now. I inserted a new ring on Monday December 13 2010, and started bleeding that Friday (the 17th). I was given a medicine to cure what they called "contact bleeding" which I had checked out because I was in pain. But that must have been something else, because my gyno said that the contact bleeding is cured, and I'm still bleeding. It's been seventeen days since I started bleeding, and I still have the ring in! I asked my gyno if I could take it out, because clearly it's pointless if I'm still bleeding, but he said I shouldn't and of I do, then when I put a new one in after a week, I won't be protected.
I feel weak and tired, which is abnormal cause I normally work out 6 out of 7 days a week and am full of energy. I've been getting super hungry recently and just feel drained of energy. Sometimes after a big meal, my stomach will be grumbling, which normally only happens if I haven't eaten in over 4 hours.
Also I took out my ring for a minute to clean it, because I hate being dirty and knew it was covered in blood. After cleaning it, I noticed it has a light yellowish tint. It has never had any color tint; it's always been clearish.
Something clearly isn't right! My gyno tested me for STD's and gave me a sonogram to look for systs on my ovaries, but both those came out clear. He said he has no idea what it is and that it's probably normal! NORMAL!? is bleeding for seventeen day while on birth control normal!?!?!? Please help me figure out what could be going on and give me advice! I want to stop bleeding now! Thanks :)
