Yes, and more: With age, and a decrease in naturally produced estrogen from the ovaries, the vaginal walls get thinner, lose elasticity, and decrease normal production of secretions. Estrogen cream helps reverse that process. So if you were dry from lack of natural estrogen, the cream should improve the vaginal health and increase the good secretions, keeping the healthy pH balance and normal bacterial balance. ...Read more

I have brown discharge after I start to take yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 13 days ago. Is this normal and it will last long?
Black = old blood: The color of the blood reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Some irregular bleeding like this with a new birth control method is very common and usually resolves on its own in a few days to weeks. ...Read more
I've not had a menstrual cycle in 10 months and I've been put on proestrogen and then estradiol with it, I now have brown discharge. Is this normal?
Why does it feel like I'm ovulating when I'm taking beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate)...I also had string mucus discharge twice last week and this week?
Beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate):
Hi, if you take the pills regularly and not missing any, you should not ovulate, that's the whole point of taking BCP. The mucus could be just because of the pills.
Be well. ...Read more
Is it normal to have brown vaginal discharge while on trinessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) bcp?
Can happen: It's common to have "break through bleeding" while on birth control pills. Taking the pills more exactly at the same time from day to day can help decrease the spotting. Setting your cell phone alarm may help. If the spotting continues, you can try a higher estrogen pill or a pill that doesn't change the Progesterone dose from row to row. ...Read more
If I stop taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) will the brown discharge between periods stop?
Breakthroughbleeding: Women not on hormonal contraceptive medication may experience bleeding in between their menstrual periods. Most often this happens around the time of ovulation. Women on bcp may experience "breakthrough" bleeding. Switching to a bcp with a different progestin may stop the breakthrough bleeding or have it happen less often. It is a good idea for a woman to keep track of the bops she was on. ...Read more
Been on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) pill for a year. Starting to get dark brown discharge instead of period 2 times a month. Is it normal?
Bad odor, no discharge. On orthocyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) first month, on inactive pills. No period. No period month before bc. Possibly pregnant?
Possible: Its not unusual to not have a period on the pill, check a upt. The odor could likely be improved by a short course of antibiotic. You could use a vinegar douch but do so carefully in that too much pressure could cause push bacteria to go into uterus creating an infection? The upt is the way to go, no one will tell you you can't be pregnant unless you have no uterus. Good luck. ...Read more

I am on nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) pills for 2mos now and I noticed I am having thick odorless yellowish vaginal discharge. Is it still normal?
Discharge: Birth control pills can thicken the cervical mucus and because on the pill your body's hormones will change you might also experience a change in vaginal discharge. However any discharge that is not white, that is accompanied by itching or burning or an odor can signal a vaginal infection. If it is bothersome you should definitely see a health care provider. ...Read more

Is it normal? Had unprotected sex on jan 3 took nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) as ecp on jan 5-6 had sex again on jan. 8 dry dark brown discharge on jan 10 to present.
Periods are normally 28 days apart but it has been over 35 since my last. I have had 3 negative pregnancy tests. On natazia (estradiol valerate and dienogest). Brown discharge recently.
Prob your period: The brown discharge was likely your period just a very light one. Brown equals old blood. It is common to have an "off' cycle every now and then.

I have been on on the birthcontrol previfem (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) for two years and have a brown discharge a week before my period. Is it normal? Any way to make it stop?

If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method.

Does clear egg-like discharge mean ovulation even if on BC? I had this after I started a new pack of Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & had unprotected sex the following 2 days...
Probably not...: The egg-white like discharge while on BC doesn't necessarily mean ovulation. The birth control pills can affect your cervical mucus just like your natural cycle. If this isn't your first month on Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and have been taking it correctly you are still protected from pregnancy. The chance of getting pregnant is about 3-5% per year. Best wishes! ...Read more
