This answer was rated:

My daughter had an abortion at the end of March. She also had an implant in her arm for contraception. She didn't have a period for more than six weeks and since then she has had and almost constant discharge with very few days of no bleeding since the start of May. Marie Stopes have not been much help and we are in the process of changing our GP as our usual doctor has retired. I think she just wants to know if this is normal or can happen in certain circumstances and whether it is to do with the procedure or the implant. I did say it might take a few months to sort itself out. Should she be worried? I will pay for a private consultation if necessary. She has just started a new job and can't take time off work during the week. Should she be worried about this problem or just give it more time?
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: It's mu daughter not me. No it's not painful but she hasn't had a regular cycle since the procedure at the end of March.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I am aware

Typing is fine

Thank you for your response.

Alright, so it can take 3 months for the cycle to regulate itself after an abortion and when a contraceptive implant is placed it is common to have irregular periods or spotting and sometimes, no period at all for 6 months. As long as she does not have any other symptoms, she should be fine. So, in her case, both the abortion and the implant have contributed to the current situation. The implant more so than the abortion.
