If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

I had a dark brown discharge since yesterday when there is still 4 more days for periods. Am 24 years old and We are preparing for a baby.
Possibly normal: I am uncertain if you mean that the spotting occurs before or during your menses. If the brown discharge is occurring during your menses, it may represent old blood. If you have brown discharge 4 days before your menses, a very common cause is bacterial overgrowth, called bacterial vaginosis (BV). Other symptoms of BV are itching, discomfort, and foul odor. ...Read more
