It : It is common to have some spotting between periods for the first 3-4 months after you start a birth control pill. You may also have spotting if you miss a pill or take a pill late. If none of these is true for you (since you've been on seasonique 4+ years), and you are just having light spotting, it is unlikely anything dangerous. Some women will spot occasionally while on birth control pills and the reason is largely unknown. If you are having heavy bleeding, you should give your doctor a call. If you have not missed a pill, then there is a 98% chance that you are not pregnant - which are pretty good odds. ...Read more

Pregnancy test: Any time your cycle is irregular in any way, the first thing to do is a pregnancy test. If that is negative, give it a few days and see what happens. There are a lot of things that can cause your cycle to be a little irregular, and as long as you aren't pregnant, most will clear up by themselves. ...Read more

It is hard to say: It is hard to determine what is going on without knowing your cycle and more of your history. It is not uncommon, however to have a couple of months of abnormal bleeding or breakthrough bleeding following a miscarriage. Take necessary precautions during this time if you are trying to prevent pregnancy for awhile. You have said nothing to indicate you cannot become pregnant during this time. ...Read more

3 days of dark brown discharge, while due for period and day 4 I started to bleed, heavier for one day then slowed down again today is that normal?

3 days of dark brown discharge, while due for period and day 4 I started to bleed, heavier for one day then slowed down again today is that normal?

Could be normal: The dark brown discharge can come from slow bleeding that sits in the vagina and when the blood breaks down it turns a brown color. If you have pelvic pain, fevers, pain with urination or vaginal itching or burning see your doctor. If not then this is probably just due to some hormonal shifts and hopefully your period will return to normal next month. If not see your doctor. ...Read more

After having period last month i've continued to bleed brown discharge for a month now. I removed nuvaringi only bled lightly for 2 days can I be pg?

Possibly: Yes, it is possible that you could be pregnant but it is not likely. How long ago was the ring removed? Usually if the low grade bleeding is brownish, it is older blood and may just be from the ring being removed. If so, it should clear by itself. Until the spotting stops however, you should use other means of birth control. If it continues, you need an examination. ...Read more
