Dr. R. Wayne Inzer
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Normal: A combined oral contraceptive ( the pill), prevents Preg by fooling your body into thinking its Preg. The cycle is artificial and usually very light esp. On lower dose pills. Color is determined by how much flow and how long it takes to reach outside. Lighter and faster, more pink. Slower and heavier , darker and thicker. Some pts will have break through spotting which may be pink, red, brown
