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?

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.
