Customer Question

I bleed most of the month bright red sometimes clots for the normal period. Then dark brown or lightly with a tinge of red in it. I also have lower back pain. This has been going on for atleast 14 months 9 months ago I was hurt at work and strained my lumbar. I haven't healed yet the chiropractor recommended I go back to my gyn. When I visited with my doctor for my annual and told him my symptoms he said my body was making so much of something that the extra bleeding was getting rid of the lining. I also have the marena in for birth control. My 2nd time around with the marena. I am a breast cancer survivor x2.
