How was your first period after abortion?

I just started mine, 4 weeks exactly after the procedure and it’s a light-medium flow. Had a negative test too so no longer pregnant. Pretty much what my periods were like before?

I have started a new birth control, Desogestrel and I have heard it can shorten/lighten and totally stop your periods, so I’m assuming it’s contributing to me having a light-ish flow.

I was expecting a super heavy and painful first period because that’s what I read, however I had an extremely painful and heavy bleeding experience whilst going through the medical procedure so I probably passed everything there and then.

I’m drinking lots of water to help it flush out, my birthday is in a couple days and I don’t want it to ruin it haha.

What was your period like when it came back after an abortion?
