QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I had intercourse two days ago, and now my period came two weeks early. It lasted for 6 days, which is not normal for me and it has a unusual dark color to it, could that be a sign of anything? Also two weeks ago I had intercourse with no condoms. I used the pill for three days then quit. Could this be a reason why my period is acting up?

ANSWER

Yes, not using the pills as directed can affect your pattern of bleeding. It sounds like a trip to the person who prescribed the pills is in order to make sure that everything is ok.
