I got the paraguard in February of this year. I've been having shooting shocks in my vagina and anus and feet for the last 2 months and I've come on twice.

When I had my daughter in 2014 that's when I first really had constipation. It cleared up after the meds were out of my system. I have vaginal discharge that has red in it. Normally I just spot with the paraguard but this looks like it's white with red blood
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
But no history of anything abnormal.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I just feel like my hemmrroid is pulling from my vagina. Like I can feel it and that's how big it is. And I'm wondering if it could be connected to the paraguard and the shocks I've been having in my body
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it's pain because of my hemmrroids but not normally. I used to go twice a day but now I'm going days unless I use a laxative.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 year ago

In my opinion you should be seen by your obs/gyn dotor as you're at slightly higher risk of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) after your IUD is inserted. PID is an infection of your reproductive organs.

Hemorrhoids usually are caused due to constipation and straining during bowel movements.

Warm sitz bath is helpful with KMNo4 or betadine.

Since you are having constipation chances are hemorrhoids may get worse.

You may try OTC hemorrhoid cream like Preparation-H.

Take laxative or fibre supplement like metamucil.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I've tried the fiber powder and the preparation H. It's actually gotten worse since the prep H. But I've been having issues with the iud since before then. That's why I was wondering if you could tell me if the 2 are connected possibly since the part between my vagina and anus is swelling up which I believe is the reason why my vagina is swelling. I won't have insurance until November so seeing a dr is out of the question for now.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Warm sitz bath can be helpful in your case.

For pain management you may require OTC painkiller like motrin.

Possibility of anal fissure is also present in your case since preparation H cream is not helping and condition is painful.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok so the anal fissure could also be causing my hemmrroids? I thought I might've had that before the hemmrroids issue started but after the hemmrroids came out I thought maybe it was just internal hemmrroids.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Anal fissures are cracks or tears in the anus and anal canal.

An anal fissure can cause sharp pain and bleeding during and after bowel movements.

I know what they are. I just want to be able to help guide the er or whoever I go to since I don't have the money to spend on cost and since reading up on it online a lot of women are having to go back n forth with dr because they can't figure it out. I would have pains in doing # 2 but it was bleeding. I didn't experience the bleeding until the hemmrroids issue.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
figure out the shocks in my lower half. I'm scared but I'm more scared of the cost of I go without insurance.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I do think your hemorrhoid issue should be seen by a colo-rectal surgeon in first place.

In the mean time you can try the following.

Warm Sitz Bath with KMNo4 or betadine.

Topical anesthetic creams such as lidocaine hydrochloride (Xylocaine) may be helpful for pain relief.

Laxative to avoid constipation.

Fibre rich diet.

Why was my card charged $36 when it said $5???
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
A refundable $5 at that! I didn't agree to $32. I need a refund of the $32 plus the $5
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 1 year ago

I have asked the customer service to do the needful.

Can you tell me why I was charged an additional $32 and when my refund will be credited? And if I need to contact customer service?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I never agreed to $32. I don't have anything left on my card and so as quickly as they took it off I need to have it put back on. It's 10:57 eastern and I take lunch between 12-1pm. My card processes it right away so I need it done before then.
