I took the morning after pill and I also take seasonique. For the past few days, about a week after taking the after pill, I have had brown discharge. No odor or pain. Is it normal?

I took the morning after pill and I also take seasonique. For the past few days, about a week after taking the after pill, I have had brown discharge. No odor or pain. Is it normal?

Brown = blood: Brown is simply old blood. This was likely caused by taking the morning after pill. You do not need to take the morning after pill when you're on birth control pills. That is the whole point of birth-control pills. Adding the morning after pill does not make the birth control pills more effective. They're already very effective. ...Read more

Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection.

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

Had protected sex week ago. Having brown/ red discharge with odor. Period went off around 7th. What can it be?

Had protected sex week ago. Having brown/ red discharge with odor. Period went off around 7th. What can it be?

By protected do you: Mean protected from conception or infection? At age 46, it is common to have fluctuations in hormone levels that can lead to spotting between periods. But the odor makes me a little more concerned this could be an infection...contraception wouldn't impact this, but use of condom should be relatively effective. I think you would be best served to see your Doc for evaluation/diagnosis. Good wishes:) ...Read more
