Abnormal period
I went to my local clinic for a 2 month injection. After the injection my period came every 4days to a week apart. I felt sick the entire time. I have not been to the clinic for three months but the problem still isn't gone. At first the blood is a blackish colour and has a really bitter taste then after 3 days becomes normal red and then after 2 days it stops. Is it a hormonal imbalance? Should I go see a Gynae? Before 'n started on contraceptives my period was also irregular, every 1 1/2 months.

This is probably an effect of the injection. It tends to get better after the second injection. If it does not, you should see a gynaecologist.
