Had an abortion recently. having brown and sometimes red discharge. What is the reason?

I had a medical abortion 6 weeks ago.. I stopped bleeding 7 days after the abortion. 2 weeks ago I noticed a brownish discharge sometimes it gets a little red but doesn't last long. Most of the time it is brownish in color. When I use the bathroom is when I notice it (once I wipe). It is not enough to where I would need a liner. Is this normal?

Thanks for the query.

After abortion, it will take sometime for regularization of the menstrual cycle.
And that time can differ from person to person.
The possible causes for your brown discharge are:
-Hypomenorrhea means scanty flow during periods due to loss of blood during abortion etc.
-Ovulatory bleeding, refer:
If the spotting repeats in the middle of the cycle once consult gynecologist.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
