I am on the 4th day of the 5 day blessed herbs colon cleanse. I am also on birth control that is a plastic ring inserted into the vagina. its called nuva ring. it makes me not have my period. i havent had one except for occasional spotting in 6 months. However, since I have started this cleanse, I have started bleeding vaginally...sometimes it is thick mucousy blood, other times its just straight up blood. I am also getting cramps. I removed my nuvaring (the birthcontrol) to see what would happen this morning. I am really concerned! is my body rejecting the birth control now that i am cleansing/free of toxins? any advice would be appreciated.
Have you been removing the ring one week each month in order to get your period? Or have you been wearing it constantly? Either way, breakthrough bleeding is common with very low-dose birth control methods. My guess is the cramping is actually being caused by your bowels, which in turn have stimulated your uterus to contract. Similar to the way you sometimes get diarhea when you get menstral cramps. I wouldn't stress about it. Let the "period" run it's course. If it continues to bleed longer than 5 days, then see a doctor.
