BCP and discharge: First get a serum HCG test for pregnancy. If negative, taking low dose oral contraceptives like "Yaz" can cause breakthrough bleeding if not taking the pill at the same time every night. Stop the pill and wait for five days, and begin a new cycle. Take them within the hour of the time taken the day before. If the brown discharge reappears, switch to another type of low dose pill . ...Read more

Brown discharge: A brown discharge in early pregnancy may be a sign of miscarriage. In first trimester miscarriages the fetus dies first and then bleeding occurs. That you had an ultrasound means the fetus is alive. In this case the bleeding may be from a subchorionic hemorrhage. That's maternal bleeding, not placental bleeding. Most of these resolve and the pregnancy continues. You need a follow up ultrasound. ...Read more
