Okay, I am on Paragard. I had a period which ended 9 days ago. It was heavy (like normal) and had severe cramping (like normal). Except the cramping lasted the entire period instead of just the first couple days. I've been getting random nausea, headaches everyday, gained around 3-4 lbs, and had a really sore pelvis and cramping in my abdomen since my period ended.
Last night I started bleeding. I know spotting is normal between periods with Paragard. I have yet to have any spotting since I got it in March. The bleeding was like a regular period. It stopped this morning by the time I woke up.
I took a FRER last night at 12 after holding my pee for three hours and still drinking water. This is what I got:
I could see the line inside the case. My cell's camera could not. I watched it dry... I took another tests this morning at 11a after holding my pee and not drinking any fluids and got a similar line right away, which my cells' camera once again could not pick up. My nearly blind husband could see them both. I compared them immediately to my first 9DPO test from my second son and they are identical.
Here they both are dried:
I'm so confused by all of this. I didn't have sex on my period and if I conceived after my period I wouldn't even be getting lines yet. I haven't even officially ovulated this cycle.
