Birth control and bleeding after an in clinic abortion
Patient : I had an in clinic abortion Friday Feb 3rd 2012. After the procedure i barely had any bleeding or cramping at all. The nurse told me to start birth control pills they gave me that sunday (the 5th) i took the first pill ( Ortho Tri cyclin 28) sunday morning and all day Sunday i had bad back pain and slight red bleeding. Today, monday the 6th I am having bad cramping and heavy period like bright red bleeding.Im sure the birth control is causing the bright heavy bleeding .Should i have started the birth control this soon and should i keep taking them?
