ask: I got my period again after 3 days of ending. Is this normal after having unprotected sex during my "first" period?

I had my period Feb 5,2010 (Friday) and had unprotected sex on Feb 6 (Saturday). He didn't cum inside of me so he'd always pull out and I took my emergency birth control pills right after we had sex. I ended my period on Feb 9 (Tuesday), then Friday (Feb 12) I got my period again. My second period lasted for about 5 days. I usually have a regular period, meaning I get my period after every 28 days. What could this mean? Is this because of the emergency birth control I took? Or is this a sign of pregnancy?

So I started my period march 22 an ended on the 26.( Ok my periods are always really bad like almost 18 tampons a day I go throught an last 7 days.) This time it was really light an 5 days I used like 10 tampons BC most the time I didn't need anything. Then 3 days later of ending my peroid I started again but when I would pee for 5 days. No cramps not heavy nothing like my peroid has been for the past 9 years. What could be goin on? I'm trying to get pregnant but it's really hard I miscarry a lot. What do I do? I went to the dr an they don't do anything this is getting really hard. I need to know what's goin on BC I want to have another baby. Please help me out.

My period finished on the Wednesday. The following weekend I started getting brown-black bleeding. I didn't consider it anything to worry about but as of the Tuesday I had heavy black clots streaming out of me from when I woke up. This followed by a period all over again. I usually have regular periods and am not on any kind of pill and have had no implants. This was also with pain in my lower abdomen area on both sides. I am also not active and haven't been for many months. Any ideas as to what this could be?

I went to the GYN and now I have to go for blood work and an ultra sound. No cysts (which normally occurs with me) and nothing out of the ordinary with a routine exam. My dr is thinking maybe it could be a thyroid problem since it runs in my family. I have to have these test fan this week and I will find out what the problem is.
