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 am 20 years old who has been diagnosed with Pcos, and as i wanted to go on birth control too, my doctor prescribed Femilon. I want to know how long it takes for the pill to start working? I have a case of bad cramps and heavy bleeding during my periods. The pain and discomfort is so bad that i am immobile for the first three-four days. I started femilon 5 days back and i m currently going through the worst cramps i ve ever had and extra heavy bleeding. I want to know how soon before the femilon will help with the pcos problem. Also, are the current cramps and extra heavy bleeding due to the pill?

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?
