Toxic shock syndrome?

Patient : I bleed for about the3 months really heavy after the birth of my second child, then i had the birth control insert put in my ard kept bleeding. The doc gave me pills to stop the bleeding but they did nothing. Eventually the bleeding kinda stopped, but I now get my period about every couple of weeks for a few days. However the blood is thick, .brown smelly , and yucky, it doesn't look right. I thought maybe I'd left a Hampton in there but I can't seem to feel or see anything in there, but when i insert a finger or two to look, i always get fresh blood on me......
Symptoms:  Yucky brown blood instead of a period
