Hi I am 17 and I just started having sex in may. I took a plan B pill in may and my period came the next week that I took the pill and in June i got my period as well. But all July and August I haven't all I've had was dark brown discharge for a couple of days but twice. Ive taken many pregnancy test but there all negative and I have no symptoms as well. What's wrong with me?

Hi!
It isn't too uncommon for women to skip a period now and then.  It is a little less common to skip two, but it is possible that using Plan B has affected your cycles.  If you were my patient, I would recommend that you come in and that we start some form of birth control for you--it can regulate your cycles and (obviously) prevent unwanted pregnancy as well.
By the way, I hope you are using condoms and have had your Gardasil series!  Sorry for the nagging!
Good luck!
Dr B

Should there be a certain reason for the cramps?
