I've had my period...

I've had my period for over a week...it started with what looked like brown "discharge" a week ago, then I started getting sore breasts and cramps and now it's a slow red flow...I am on birth control (Nexplanon) that will be need to be replaced/taken out in March...I've also gained some healthy weight back (previously wasn't getting a period), so wondering if this has anything to do with the healthy weight gain

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

My lower abdominal area feels crampy, but nothing abnormal My periods have not been regular for years...almost 10 years (suffered from an eating disorder for a long while)...my thought was that this is my body just re-regulating itself, but wanted to be sure I was also tested 6 mo. ago for STDs and HPV Got a pap smear

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Other than the time when I was underweight, no

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
