| | passed something pink & fleshy scared; what was it?
about two months ago, i lost my birth control and stopped taking it as a result.
a few weeks later, my partner's family commented that i looked pregnant. around this time i went back on birth control. i started to feel extremely ill and could not get enough rest, sleeping for up to 12 hours at a time. my sense of smell became more sensitive and i became easily nauseated.
i assumed that because i went back on the birth control around the same time i should have been starting to get my period, my body was fighting to both menstruate and not menstruate. as the symptoms continued, followed by cravings, i took a pregnancy test. it was negative.
a few days ago, i began to get my period as scheduled. however, it was not normal. instead of spotting, what came out of me was thick and dark brown. later that day, i started to have seriously intense cramps. if i have cramps, they are usually light and i feel them in my lower back. these cramps were heavy, excruciating and in my belly.
because my cramps were so bad, i changed from a tampon to a pad. my tampon was pretty full, which was also weird for the first day of my cycle. i don't usually bleed regularly until about the 2nd or 3rd day. about half an hour after the cramps stopped, i went to check my pad. at first it looked like i had bled a lot, but then i realized there was a slightly large, about 1.5" – 3" long, pink-ish... thing sitting on my pad. my partner described it as "a pink prune." horrified, i didn't look at it for long. the bleeding continued for the next couple of hours and then tapered off. since then i have expelled only very dark brown blood and not very much of it. usually, i bleed "regularly" for 1 – 2 days during my period, before bleeding very little blood (sometimes dark) the last day or so.
i assumed because i had so many symptoms of pregnancy, that i had miscarried. however, looking online, i am finding very few accounts that match mine. none of them provide an answer.
what did i pass? did i miscarry? what should i do?
