AF too soon after a D and C?


Q: Hi, I had a D and C last March 20 and I have been bleeding a few days after that since I was taking oxytocic. The blood was dark brown and very minimal. It almost stopped over the weekend however yesterday it started to bleed more profusely and the blood is bright red this time. Could this be my AF but it seemed too soon as I believe it should come after about 4-6 weeks post D and C. I've been cramping and having migraines similar to what I experience when I have my period. Is it possible to have it sooner? I haven't done any strenuous physical activity that could possibly cause this.
