I had mine 6 days ago and they said "no intercourse, no tampons, no baths for a week after." I've been taking my temperature and the highest it's gone was 99F. And I passed a lot of clots on days 3 and 4. But I'm still bleeding and cramping and having to take 400mg of ibuprofen at a time to manage the pain--which is a bit worse than normal period cramps. The bleeding isn't heavy nor is it constant but it's almost always bright red and I thought by the time I passed all the clots 2 days ago that it would have slowed down but nope.
Nothing is alarming enough that I feel like I need to call the doctor, but I'm wondering if anyone knows at what point should I stop being paranoid about the possibility of an infection developing assuming nothing is going inside of me this whole time? I wasn't given any antibiotics after my procedure (I asked about it and they said they only give them out if infection symptoms develop later).
