Dec 6, 2019 · Potential pregnancy? in Women's Health

I'm sorry that this situation is making you scared. I'm glad to say that there is really no way for you to have gotten pregnant that way. Sperm is not carried through urine and would not survive on a toilet, or the vigorous handwashing. Sperm needs to be inside a body to survive and dies quickly outside of a body. Unless you've had sexual intercourse lately it's highly unlikely for you to be pregnant. Periods can sometimes change as we age, or because we are stressed, or hormone fluctuations. Is this new job stressful for you? I know that having period changes can be worrying. I hope this helps you feel better.

Thanks @lioness and @baxtersmom
I have been trying to stay well hydrated but hadn't thought about electrolytes. I also had no idea about raisins! I really do love raisins, so it'll be easy to eat some more for a while!

Thanks, @baxtersmom
I do have some mild anemia, my hemoglobin was 11 at the ER visit. But the doctors are not overly concerned because that is holding pretty steady from February when I had the IUD removed (11.1 at that time after my first long bout of bleeding, and started iron tablets at that time.) I am trying to draw hope from that fact that the biopsy showed no malignancy and that the doctors are not overly concerned, but without definitive answers I'm finding myself in the patient's dilemma of waiting with the unknowns, which are not comfortable friends.

Unfortunately, my appointment is as soon as I could get in. I discussed the bleeding with the nurse while I was scheduling and until we can get the sonogram results there isn't much to do but wait. The bleeding is tapering away so that's encouraging. I am feeling decent in general, but get exhausted easily, so I'm taking it easy (hard with a nearly three yo) and trying to eat extra iron to supplement my iron pills.

Thanks for the reply. I've been reading the mayo information and other reliable sites, but I still feel a left with questions. I plan on bringing them up to my doctor. (I have a familial history, a previous C-section and a Paraguard IUD that we pulled in February during an aborted sonogram because it had moved and hoped that would return my bleeding to normal) I have my sonogram scheduled for the 18th of this month. I'm just hoping that this appointment works because I have yet to stop bleeding since the ER and follow up OB. The hormones that we had hoped would stop the bleeding have slowed the bleeding but have not completely stopped it. (Provera for 10 days and now a low-estrogen birth control) I find using hormones difficult because they make me irritable and other symptoms so I haven't used them in years. But as the information states that polyps are estrogen-sensitive being on estrogen birth control is making me a little more anxious. I know most of this is something for the doctor but waiting two weeks without any answers is tough.

Last week, I had a uterine biopsy after such heavy bleeding I fainted following a year of dealing with irregular bleeding. The biopsy showed possible uterine polyps. I'm working on scheduling a saline sonogram to confirm whether I have one. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with uterine polyps. Any information beyond my internet researching would be appreciated. While no malignancy was shown, I'm having some worries over this, and would like to talk to some one that has been through this.
