after abortion

im 30yrs old and have three children. I not to long ago had an abortion, back in early march. everything went fine and i did my follow up appt. everything was fine also.But a month after the procedure my menstrual periods have been crazy. they would last for a month and a half. then stop for about a week and start right back up.In the beginning part of my period it would be dark brown and/or black then it would turn red after about two-three days.
Went to the doc and he gave me medroxyprogesterone 10 mg to take for five days to stop my periods, that worked. I was off my period for about three weeks and it came back (which was expected) but again the with the dark brownish/black color and it had an odor and the cramps felt like beginning labor..
(havent had sex since before the procedure)

Honey, go see your doctor and don't assume it is just an irregular period.  Maybe you have something else going on, an infection or whatever.  Just go see a doc, this isn't something that can be solved online.
