I really hope somebody will be able to advise me because I'm driving myself crazy worrying about this.
I am ashamed to say I had a termination in Novemberlast year and I have regretted it ever since. I went straight on to the Depo injection after that, may last injection for that was March this year. In June I started taking the contraceptive pill but after a month and a half I stopped taking them as my husband and I decided we want to start trying for a baby. This was the end of August.
For five weeks, nothing happened and then I got my period on the 8th of September. Well, I bled for 3 and a half weeks although it was light after the first few days. It stopped for a few days and then started again exactly four weeks to the day that it first started. I bled for a week, then stopped for a few days, came back on again.
I have had blood tests which all came back fine. My doctor prescribed me Utovlan (a progestogen) last friday advising me to take 3 a day and then come back and he'd examine me. I took only one a day until yesterday, so 4 days as I didnt want to take more hormones than I had to and it stopped the bleeding. However, my doctor said that as such a small amount stopped the bleeding, I dont need to be examined.
I haven't taken one of the pills today as my doctor suggested just letting my body go back to normal and I've started brown spotting :-( I know I sound pathetic but I'm really panicking because I'm terrified that my fertility is gone or that I have something awful. I have been doing home ovulation kits and I'm not ovulating as well as this bleeding and I'm so scared.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd be so grateful
