Hello, I had my second colonoscopy ever 3 days ago

I had my second colonoscopy ever 3 days ago and today I've begun my period. I haven't been keeping track if my period so I'm not sure if it is on time or not. My main concern is that I'm bleeding much heavier than usual. When I got my period it was as if I had peed myself (but with blood) because there was so much. My period has never been this heavier. I wear a diva cup and the blood seems to be finding it's way around the cup even though it is not 100% full (this also never happens). I had very bad cramps the morning before I started bleeding.. but the very bottom of my lower abdomen which isnt like my usual cramps. I was even worried I was getting a uti the day before because the urgency when needing to go to the washroom and the pain/burning sensation. The colonoscopy went well and biopsies were taken. Should j be concerned?
Thank you

So I had a colonoscopy about 2 months ago. I went in due to diareha. I did the prep and went in, everything was normal after the procedure however I did not pass gas for a long time, the second day I passed gas. With this being said the 2nd day was fine until i ate, when I ate i ended up in a matter of 10 minutes looking like i was ready to deliver a baby. I went to the er called my doc and they told me i was constipated? Really? Now it s almost the end of 2 months they are wanting to see me on the 7th to do an endoscopy. I am still highly bloated threw up once and had it coming from both ends at 1 am in the morning one night after i went to sleep, I can hardly eat and when I do my stomach continues to become more distended. If i could show you the before and after pictures it would give you a thousand words. They better fix what ever is wrong because i didn t have these problems until i went in and had the procedure done. I can hardly go and when I do i have to take milk of magnesa and it s still quite painful and tight. I hardly belch or release any type of gas. Can someone please give me some advice? I m fixing to get a lawyer if things don t change... I am highly uncomfortable all of the time.
