Patient: Hi, I got on the birth control shot after I had my daughter. I was on it for about a year and quit taking it 9 months ago. I just started my period on the 6th of March for 5 days, quit for 6 days then it started again and lasted 5 days. Started bleeding again 2 1/2 weeks later and been bleeding for almost two weeks now. The cramps I’ve been having are sharp and been having a twisting pain on my right lower abdominal area. Is this just a side affect of not having my period in so long or could I be having a miscarriage?
