Back in February I had a Paraguard IUD put in. Every thing's been typical, heavier periods, more cramping, not the same exact 28 day cycle I used to have. But the one thing that has been plaguing me since then is that during my periods I get mild to EXTREME rectal pains during my periods.
I'm assuming it's something like hemorrhoids possibly but the fact that the pain is ONLY there during my cycle and that the pain as been severe only twice (the first month after the IUD & now) I'm just not sure.
The first time it happened I called the Dr's office I had the IUD put in and the nurse wasn't sure but she called back & said that sometimes rectal cramps are a normal part of periods.
I've NEVER experienced anything like this before. And I can't find anything about rectal pains associated with periods.
Any info any one may have I would greatly appreciate.
