I have brown discharge that has been coming out of my vagina for weeks now. I'm on birth control and I shouldn't be getting my period right now ?

In brief: Breakthrough bleed

The brown discharge is old blood that is coming from the lining of the womb prematurely with the use of low dose contraceptive pills.
If this continues and you take your pill everyday at the same time each day, contact your MD to see if a pill change is warranted.
