Abortion/After Abortion Brown Discharge

Question
At the end of October 2010 I had an abortion, and I am aware that brown discharge afterwards is normal. Since then my periods have become regular again and everything else has continued as normal and I had no complications or anything. However, since the first period I had afterwards and up to now I have for about 5 days before my period brown discharge. The discharge sometimes smells foul but in most cases does not. It also occcasionally will actually spot onto my underwear or a panty liner but in most cases only comes out when I wipe. However the last couple days of my period the tampon will come out mostly brown. There is no pain or itching so I always wondered about the color but was never really concerned. Is there any reason I should feel otherwise?

Thanks so much

Answer
Hi Sarah, Thanks for your question. I am concerned that you are having this problem for 2 years if I am reading your question correctly. Is this what you mean? Have you ever asked your doctor about this? If not, please do. Have you had any other problems after your abortion? If you need any post abortion healing counseling, let me know. I provide free healing counseling online for emotional, spiritual, or psychological problems. My private email address is CHERYL51@aol.com so please let me know how things go for you. P.S. are you taking birth control pills or anything hormonal?

Sincerely,
Diane Cheryl
