Light spotting ok: Spotting can occur or ala under almost any circumstance, and as long as it's light and subsides in a reasonable amount of time - aide less than a week(some will debate this cutoff), there is no cause for alarm...

A 22-year-old female asked:

Experiencing brown discharge and spotting after two years on nexplanon birthcontrol can this mean it stopped working ?

Infection? STD?: This probably isn't related to your birth control. Abnormal vaginal discharge, especially colored e.g. brown, and abnormal vaginal bleeding (spotting) always require prompt medical evaluation, and you have both. At your age of 22, infections, especially STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia, are common causes. See your doctor soon.
