Ok, so as I previously posted about, I got an IUD on Thursday. The insertion went badly. I'm not entirely sure what happened, as I was in my horrible pain special place, but they kind of had to insert it twice, because the first attempt didn't put it in the right place. Afterwards I was in pretty rough shape, but since then, pain has just been intermittent.

Now comes the gross part-I have been experiencing the expected spotting, but in addition to that, I am passing some kind of tissue (I don't know what else to call it). It's not blood clots. It is gross and disturbing.

Google (what a bad choice, why don't I ever learn?) provided nothing but horrifying and unrelated stories.

What the hell is going on? After the procedure, I was dizzy and trying not to puke, so the Dr. didn't have any kind of "what to expect" discussion with me.
