User avatar When you upset the monthly cycle, sometimes irregular bleeding will occur. If you are having heavy bleeding to the point of soaking a super tampon and pad every 2 hours or so, call your doctor.

I had my annual exam a few weeks ago and recieved a call that my pap was abnormal. I am waiting now for my appointment. I finished my period a little over a week ago. I started late and it was short and light. But, on Sunday after returning from work, I noticed I started having a brown discharge, with some small clots and a mucous substance. I have also been having some cramping, occassionally severe. I am concerned perhaps it may be an ectopic pregnancy that has spontaneously aborted. But I had also finished taking the pill last month to try and become pregnant. I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2001, however I didn't know it was ectopic until recently. They treated me for gestational trophoblastic neoplasia. I am very concerned.
