Hi, I had a surgical abortion 5/6 weeks ago. I've been on Microgestin fe 1/20 for 4 weeks after the abortion. I've had unprotected sex 3 times during the 4 weeks of taking the pill. During my "placebo" pills, I think I started my period on the 3rd day. It was nothing but dark brown / dark red blood for 6 days. On the 7th day I didn't bleed. Now I'm on the 8th day & I'm bleeding again. But this time its red blood. I've not continued taking a new pack of pills, because im planning on taking the depo shot next week. I also have been diagnosed with the flu yesterday, I've been taking medications for it. I'm just confused to why I'm bleeding again..
