Hi doctor,

I had an implant placed but suspected pregnancy, so I got it removed two days before. After removing the implant, I am bleeding, which is reddish brown. Kindly help.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

I would suggest:

  1. Serum beta hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) test. In case the test report is negative, do an ultrasound scanning, complete blood count, and thyroid function test.
  2. Take Folic acid as you have removed the implant and suspect pregnancy.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
