I am a 27 yr old female that had a tubal ligation on 6-8-11 after my daughter was born. I had my period on 21- 23 of this month and now I feel as if I am on my period again (now the 27) with bleeding and presence of tissues and such. The bleeding is not a brownish color but bright red. I also have lower back pain and some cramping.MY periods are usually 3-4 days and done. I have never had 2 periods in the same month. Any suggestions on what this may be. I cant get into a doc till 2 days from now when my husband gets back into town with the car. Any advice anyone can suggest will be grateful. thanks
You are not having a second menstrual period. You are having an episode of abnormal vaginal bleeding. This forum cannot tell you why this is happening but it sounds significant and needs to be looked into medically.
Thanks for your Reply!
I have had a few times where my period stopped for a few days and then started back up. Since it happened so infrequently, I did not run off to my doctor. Also, irregular bleeding seems fairly common after tubal ligation. It's one of the symptoms of Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. But it seems to be more common to have longer and heavier periods, not necessarily more frequent "periods." Hopefully, this is just an isolated incident.
