Hi, my period was supposed to start today but instead a noticed a brownish discharge, I'm on birth control but sometimes I forget to take my pills.

Oral bcp: Oral bcp's have low amounts of hormones, so missing a pill or two will cause some bleeding
(spotting or brown discharge), just like the week on the placebo pills ("sugar pills"). Since one can "miss" seven days of the active pills (during the placebo week) it is unlikely for pregnancy to occur by missing a pill or two. Taking them on time every day will stop the brown discharge, though. ...Read more

Why am I having vaginal brown discharge unprotected sex on birth control

Why am I having vaginal brown discharge unprotected sex on birth control

Vaginal: Vaginal brown discharge can be a sign of a few different things. One common occurence is old blood. If you are on birth control pills (bcp's), especially during the first 3 months, spotting is considering normal. This spotting can present as brown discharge because it can linger in the vagina and by the time it is released it is brown in color.

Also certain infections can cause a brown discharge. Unless you have itching, burning, vaginal irritation, or foul odor I would not be concerned about an infectious process.

I suggest if any of the above symptoms are present, see your doctor for an evaluation. If not, and the discharge persists, especially after 3 months on bcp's your doctor may try another bcp and perform additional testing if deemed necessary.

Good luck. ...Read more
