Hi!
welcome to healthcaremagic.com.After abortion it takes 6-8 weeks for menses to resume and also since you took birth control pills that has altered the hormonal status all the more.Do take a ultrasound pelvis to see if no cyst in ovary etc..and let us know.

I am on the depo shot and have been taking birth control pills for the last 10 days because I was having heavy periods. The bleeding has finally stopped. Do I need to continue taking the pills until they are gone? Also will the bleeding come back after the second 3 month injection?

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
