Possibly nl.: This could either be ovulatory spotting or starting period. Other possibilities include a cyst, fibroid, torsed ovary, endometrial polyp, or infection. Would use ibuprofen 600-800mg TIS and just watch. If pain worsens, need to be seen and probably get pelvic ultrasound. ...Read more

It sounds like: You need a different pill if this is a persistent issue. It's likely due to lower estrogen at the end. A 35 mcg pill that doesn't change in doses, mono phasic, is good, may consider Necon 1/35. There are other things that can cause this like cervical inflammation but lets assume it's the pill, call your doc. They are still covering u unless u r on one of a few drugs that decrease hormone levels. ...Read more

Probably ok: As long as you didn't miss any pills, you should be ok. you can check a pregnancy test to make sure if you want. It will likely be normal next month. Just don't stop your pills. ...Read more

Light pink spotting and brown discharge 2 weeks before my period.what does this mean?

Light pink spotting and brown discharge 2 weeks before my period.what does this mean?

Brown discharge: It is not at all uncommon for light bleeding at the time of ovulation (if of course not on oral birth control). This can "turn brown" by the time before it becomes visible. This occurs because the drop in estrogen preceding ovulation can cause the uterine lining to break down slightly, causing the "breakthrough bleeding". ...Read more
