See your doctor: Brown discharge is typically light bleeding. Irregular bleeding/brown discharge is common in the first 3 months of birth control pills, and can also occur if you miss pills. But, there are lots of causes of such brown discharge/bleeding, including pregnancy, stds, other infections, polyps, or fibroids. You should see your doctor to be sure.
