User :   but they are always 3-4 days in length
Doctor :   ok
User :   yes I did one at home and it was negative
User :   I also have an IUD
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
so i think pregnancy is ruled out.
User :   I believe so but I can't be too sure I guess - I've had this IUD for 10 years and it is time to remove it - copper T
Doctor :  
if you want to reconfirm it ,it can be done at 6 weeks from the previous period
Doctor :   It deprnds on the type of the coppert
Doctor :  
it comes for 2 years, 3 years and 5 years ,life time
User :   this one was 10 years
Doctor :   So it better to change it, because infections will be more
Doctor :  
it is adviced to change once in 5 years
User :   yeah I know, I am going to have that done soon
Doctor :   ok
User :   really, I was told 10 years - have a friend who has it also for 12 years and just removed hers
Doctor :  
ok
User :   I can believe issues could occur after 5 years
Doctor :  
yes , you are correct

User :   oh you are a different doctor?
Doctor :  
yes
User :   ok
Doctor :

User :   I am worried about the period I have now - it has been 14 days tomorrow
Doctor :  
i have gone through the chat
Doctor :  
last perid was on 20th august??
User :   I have an IUD so that kinds rules out pregnancy and I also took a pregnancy test that was negative
User :   yes it was and I still have it
Doctor :   from 14 days continous bleeding??
User :   yes
User :   not a heavy period but yes bleeding for 14 days straight
Doctor :   y are u worried abot pregnancy now??u can be pregnant only if u have missed period
User :   to the contrary my cousin had her period throught her entire pregnancy
Doctor :  
if u dont get periods by next september 20th then u should be worried and go for pregnancy test
User :   It was just something I wanted to check
Doctor :  
ur cousin is a rare case....it happens only one per 100
Doctor :  
so pregnancy is ruled out
Doctor :   reason for ur continous bleeding may be ur IUD
Doctor :  
or else harmonal imbalance
User :   I was just scared that it would be something very bad
Doctor :  
i can understand
User :   I should see a doctor right?
Doctor :  
nothing to worry
Doctor :  
on safer side u go for an ..PAP smear test which will rule out cervical and vaginal cancer
User :   can I see a doctor if I am still bleeeding?
Doctor :  
and also scanning to rule out any problem with the uterus ..
Doctor :  
it is better u get a detailed check up of ur parts done ...and firstly remove the IUD as soon as possible and get new one
User :   ok
Doctor :  
inserted u can go for harmonal IUDS ehich are better than copper t
Doctor :  
like progestraset which is not only a contraceptive but also helps to overcome harmonal imbalance
User :   what kind of IUD is that? anything like the Copper T
Doctor :  
to look it is like copper t ..but it has harmonal drugs which will release harmones at regular intervals to maintain propr periods and reduce bleeding frequency..and also prevents pregnancy
Doctor :  
'as u are suffering from irregular bleeding..it is better u go for it now....and take 2nd opinion from doctor before that
Doctor :   which place are u from??
User :   Mount Prospect Illinois
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
r u there?
User :   yes
User :   ok well I guess the bottom line is I don't need to be alarmed but I do need to see a doctor right away right?
Doctor :   its not an emergency ..nothing to worry
Doctor :  
first remove IUD AND GO GOR PROGESTRASET WHICH IS HARMONAL IUD
User :   thank you so much
Doctor :   go for PAP TEST to rule out cancer
Doctor :  
welcome
User :   ok
Doctor :  
and scanning to rule out any uterine or ovarian problem
Doctor :
