Check pg test: Check a pg test to be sure, anytime your period is abnormal, in length, symptoms, or timing. Repeat in a week and if negative, and you miss another period, see your doc to find out why. Follow the instructions on the kit, and be sure it has not expired, too. Also, infections can occur, if you are at risk of pregnancy. So get checked for those if your pg test is negative. Practice safe sex! ...Read more

My period is so light not bleeding really mostly brown discharge im on the pill is this normal ?

Yes: The pill tends to keep the lining of the uterus minimal to impede implantation so the periods are "light". By the way, this is hormonally induced bleeding and not a "real period". It is designed by the pill manufacturer to remind you when to start your next pack of pills. ...Read more

Normal variation: What you described is consistent with normal variations in menstrual periods. If you had unprotected sex since your last period, you may wish to do a home pregnancy test. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Vaginal issues: I think you should do pregnancy test first. This will tell you whether you are pregnant or not. If not, and still no period, repeat in 2 weeks. For vaginal discharge you need to have a doc look at this and do tests to rule out infectious causes first. ...Read more
