Constant dark brown discharge after stopping mononessa birth control pills is due to polyp or early miscarriage?

Hello I'm 22 years old I have been on mononessa birthcontroll pills for about two years I recently stopped taking the pills its been about 3 months i hadn't tooken the pills now recently I started experiencing cramps which I thought was my period when I went to the restroom I had very bright bright red bleeding followed by a lime sized blood clot (maybe a little smaller then a lime) this bleeding was very heavy it lasted about two hours and next morning it was gone I went two more days with no sign of bleeding and now I've started experiencing a very dark brown discharge (its more black brown then it is a red brown) its been almost a week of this very light dark brown discharge, I read online that brown bleeding is a sign of old blood n should clear up soon but now going on a week with this constant discharge is making me nervous (I am also in a monogamous relationship so I'm not worried about it being a std but very worried I have a polyp or possibly a early misscarige since I wasn't using protection well being off the pill) please help me with any thing this could be!

Thanks for the query.
The possible causes for your bleeding are :
- After stopping the contraceptive pills, it will take some time for regularization of the hormonal levels.
And this can lead to irregular bleeding.
- As you didn't use contraceptive measures after stopping the pills, there is possibility of pregnancy also.
-Other causes of heavy bleeding are thyroid hormonal abnormalities, structural causes like polyps, fibroids etc.
For more details :

So, as the bleeding is persisting, better to consult gynecologist once and get evaluated.
By examination and ultrasound, one conclusion can be drawn regarding the cause for your problem.
And treatment can be taken accordingly.
