Can taking birth control pills cause brown discharge with clots ?

Had an abortion in early March (using pill method), had first normal menstrual about 14 days ago, began taking birth control (pill method) about 9 days ago, started to have a light brown discharge on Sunday, and have brown clotting today. What could it be and should I be worried?

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum. It could be a breakthrough bleeding. Continue taking the pill. If spotting continues consult your gynaecologist. Good Luck.

I missed my pill on Tuesday, on wednesday i took ONE pill (my wednesday pill so i didn t take a pill tuesday) I came in contact with a penis around my vagina hole; he did not go inside of me. Thursday i had brown discharge and I took my Tuesday pill (silly i know) and then i had a blood clot in my undies. Friday i took plan B. Its now monday and ever since friday i have had red blood in mucus when on my toilet paper and bad cramps in what seems like my left ovary, it is aching. I was meant to start my placebo pills on saturday and i skipped them to continue the active pills. Are these symptoms normal? Can you get early pregnancy signs this early?
