I've never had regular periods. I had the coil fitted at the end of June, but went back to the pill around august time as the coil was causing problems. Since I went back to the pill, my periods have been regular and for the full 7 days. The last period I had was from the 19th until the 26th of November, but then on dec 4th (over a week since my last period) I started to have a dark brown discharge, I've had it everyday since and although it's constantly heavy discharge, it can be heavier at different times of the day (I've even had to wear pads to avoid staining my underwear!) I haven't noticed any smell from it either. I thought nothing of it at first, but as it hadnt gone away, I looked it up on the Internet; one site said that if u also have symptoms such as depression and pain during sex, then it could be something serious like cervical cancer....now this has worried me asi have had those symptoms. I have tried to get in at the doctors, but they have such a ridiculous appointment scheme, I couldn't get one! Could someone please advise as to what it could be or what to do?

Well antibiotic effects the birth control pill, As it shows on the package or it should it says do not take antibitoics with birth control, Not saying this to scare u id take a test, Because antibitotics is stronger then birth control so birth control wont work as its suppost to... I also have brown discharged and i usually get it after my period and after sex.. I was wondering about it to but apperintly its normal to get after period or before..

I'm about more than a week late, have had brown discharge few days after missed period with a slight pink in for one day, and I had the discharge for about 2-3 days with menstrual pains. Usually normal for me when I'm about to have my period, but still no period. Just White discharge now. Have been sexually active, very bad diet (eat a light snack during the day only), stressing a bit and rushing around in the mornings on my way to work and babysitter's. Would I b pregnant or just have a missed period? Last month my period was a bit late too (been drinking a bit more now too)

I had to go to the doctor a couple weeks ago for stomache pain. It was very swollen and i was in alot of pain. My doctor had informed me i could possibly have ruptured my spleen. (I had gotten in a pretty bad fight prior to seeing her). I was sent to the er. Had a cat scan with contrast put into my IV and they found i had a cyst on my ovary that had ruptured. They sent me home to make a follow up with my doctor and they pretty muched brushed me off an said i was going to habe to deal with it. There was nothing they could do. I was still in pain. I did get my period that lasted for 9 days. (Way longer then normal for me). Now its been 3-4 days and every time i pee theres brown stuff coming out. Is it from my period or is it that contrast stuff coming out?? Should i be concerned?

Not sure if this helps I just found it on another forumUsually a brownish discharge like you've described would indicate that you didn't ovulate. When you don't ovulate, the hormone changes that cause the uterine lining to clean off with a period aren't there. Consequently the lining doesn't clean off and further bleeding or spotting or brown discharge can occur. Usually if you don't ovulate, your period doesn't come exactly when expected, so it doesn't quite fit with your story. However, it's still the most likely reason for the abnormal spotting. Not ovulating happens to all women at times. Causes other than stress are weight change, illness, thyroid problems, and sometimes we don't find a reason. It usually takes care of itself with time, but since yours has gone on in 2 cycles, I would probably think about seeing your doctor to have it checked out some more. Best wishes.

Hi. I'm having the same thing. About three weeks ago I had sex without a condom but I had been taking the pill but forgot to take it the day we had sex. I was suppose to start my period seven days ago but instead have been having brown spotting with barely any blood and sometimes its not even there and then the next it is. My appetite seemed to grow but nothing else has changed. Am I pregnant?

Please no judgements. Was on Loestrin24 and got pregnant. My husband and I decided that it'd be best that we terminate it due to lack of funds. Since then , I have the birth control Implanon. It's been great, it's just that When I get my period, the blood is brown and I also have hard peices of discharge coming out as well... I don't even have my period now but when I go to pee, when I wipe i get a little bit of blood that comes out.And then that's it!!.... After intercourse, the discharge happens again ,and discontinues after. I'm so confused and I don't know what it means.. Any ideas? The pregnancy was terminated on December 8th of this year, so the chances of it being discharge from my vagina still trying to clean itself out seems to not be the case for me.. I'm going to my doctor on Wednesday to figure out what the deal is, but I just want to prepare myself...Could it be my birth control detecting a pregnancy and so it is terminating it?..So confused, and grossed out by all of this.

Hi everyone,
I've been having the same / similar problems. I had my period from the 13th of Feb to the 17th ( I am on a monthly pill ) and then about a week and a bit later {the 23rd} I noticed this brown coloured discharge and started freaking out - because my boyfriend and I had had sex but we're thinking we were safe. So I plucked up the courage to go see a doctor after 5 days of this discharge happening and the doctor told me it is nothing to worry about. The brown discharge is old blood, I asked her why this happens because its as if I'm having a second period and she says its normal if you're going through hormoanal changes or if yor pill is getting weaker.
They did do a urine test and I think if I were pregnant they would have told me. So I'm not pregnant.
I do suggest that you go see your doctor as this might be happening to you too and if you are on the pill you might need to change your pills strength.
Hope this puts some girls minds at ease because I know I was panicking a bit...

Ladies, I want you to ALWAYS check something out FIRST when you are having a brown/ pinkish discharge with or without odor immediately after your period.  Check if you have a tampon lodged in your vagina. I know it sounds strange but it HAPPENS. So many times women come to our OBGYN office with heavy brown discharge after their periods and 85% of the time its a tampon that is lodged. It can be lodged in quite a bit of the way and sometimes even folded in half and lodged. Most women have put  in another tampon during their period or to catch the discharge and simply did not realize they were puching another tampon up their vagina. This can often solve your problem 100% without any worry, doctors office, or antibiotics. Wash your hands, fingers and nails thoroughly and  if you happen to have some, put on latex gloves and gently feel around with your fingers going as far as you can reach without discomfort. If you do find you have a tampon lodged, you may gently pich a corner of it and tug slowly until it is completely removed. Once you have removed the lodged tampon, stear clear of douches for a few days, you may use water if you would like to flush the area, but your body will do its job and flush out the remaining discharge. If you are having trouble getting the tampon out or have any pain, then yes please make an appnt with your OBGYN. If you have thoroughly checked with your fingers and are confident this is not the problem, then yes, please do call your doctor/ or obgyn for further follow up. You may need an antibiotic for an infection and very very rarely is it something more serious. Calm Down Relax, Your Going to be FINE!

I've been on birth control to help with my irregular periods for over a year now. I messed up and missed two days of my pack but then continued taking them as I normally would. A couple days later after having sex with my husband I noticed a brown discharge, which then was followed by an almost normal period(just kind of smelled differently) and now have been having dark brown discharge. This is all happening 2 weeks before my normally schedualed period. Anyone know what could be going on? Are my hormones just all out of whack or could it be something more serious???

I am having the same exact issue now... Mine started yesterday but has stopped this morning. i have no idea what is going on, but i know it could either be implantation bleeding, menstrual changes, or if you took Plan B (I did), it could be that. It's so confusing because it's all within the same time frame of all of these things, it could be anything! I just had my period 2 weeks ago, so I'll have to wait a whole other 2 weeks to see if I'm going to miss my period or not.

Do not be worried! That is how I started when I was your age. It's natural to feel panicky and worried, but just relax. It will calm down eventually!

I have had dark brown blood coming from my vagina for a week off and on. My period is in a week but I don't know what's causing this to happen. I have no cramps or anything and it isn't a big amount of blood but it's still strange. I'm on birth control so I'm assuming it's because of that. My last periods have been this dark blood also

I'm not on my period, and for the last few days I've been bleeding dark brown blood, and yesterday after I urinated there was a large blood clot in the toilet. Should I be concerned??

Hi I'm on cerazette contraception pill and haven't had a period for months (more towards a year) and tonight I go for a wee + wipe myself and there's discharge with a dark brown blood in it. I used to be on cerazette before I had my son Feb 2011 and never had a period when I was on it then. So not sure if its a period or summit else. Also haven't had sex for weeks :/ x

Ya. It seems like I may have the same thing...
I just started birth control almost 2 months ago, the one that makes you not have your period for 3 months... Well it's been fine but for the past week I have been getting this brown discharge. It will be in my panties and there is so much in my vag. I am in no pain, but my vag has been really itchy.
Is this a result of the pills? Does anyone know what's going on?

Hey guys. So I've recently had sex with my boyfriend about 2-3 days ago. I'm due for my period any time now, but all I've noticed is this brown discharge that comes and goes with a little blood. Ive put in tampons and had almost nothing come out with them. Please help me. I am young and pray to god, knock on wood that I'm pregnant. I can't be. I'm so scared, im worrying I may be stressing myself out, it's just so scary. What could this be? I normally have very very heavy periods as well. What's going on?

I've experienced the same thing. I have recently been sexually active, unprotected, I just started taking birth control again. About 2 weeks before my scheduled period is supposed to start, I had brown,bloody discharge. Now, I have a very light pink colour and the flow is extremely light. I have ready many different possibilities but I am extremely concerned that I may be pregnant. I have also been experiencing lower abdominal pain, and certain foods are hurting my stomach.

Two weeks ago I began yaz birth control pill. Five days ago I had sex. I am very very small and sex usually hurts and causes minor bleeding. However, starting four days ago I began getting bad cramps and dark brown, bloody discharge. It has continued for four days. Is this breakthrough bleeding from the pill? Or a result of sex?

Is it normal?
Should it just stop?

I want to share my story with everyone, maybe it will be of some help to someone out there worrying and googling.. I had all the symptoms of "implantation bleeding" / early pregnancy, as most people posted about. I was a week or so away from starting my period, had brown discharge for one day, then pink for the next day, to day and a half. This has never happened to me before. I looked it up and everyone and their mother said 'you're pregnant, congrats, baby dust, etc.' I am a healthy 22 year old female, I have had unprotected sex with my partner at least 3 times this months, and guess what? 100% Not Pregnant. I was worrying so much because every single answer I found online basically pointed to implantation bleeding, but that was definitely not the case! So, don't stress if you have spotting, regardless of when it occurs in your monthly cycle, sometimes it's just normal.

Ok so I am 12 years old an something really weird happened to days ago. I went out to eat and went to the bathroom to poop and pee but when I wiped my front it was brown so I wiped like 20 times because that was really gross so as soon as I got home I took the longest shower of my life and when I came out I peed and there was still some heavyish brown stuff in the front but I didn't see it if I looked at my Virginia. The next day I woke up and peed and that brown stuff was there. I was worried because I couldn't see it on my Virginia so I thought it was maybe in it. I took a piece of toilet paper and rolled it up like I was about to put it in my nose but put it on my Virginia hole where i pee instead and when I took it out it was red bloody. But that was the only time I saw blood. This brown stuff doesn't  come out its just on my toilet paper and I told my mom about it and joking around she said I had a bladder disease but now I'm scared. I haven't had my period EVER and I'm wondering if this is it or if I really do had an infection... HELP!!!

I had my period just over 2 weeks ago and for the past few days have been experiencing a thick brown discharge when I wipe. I have had sex recently just after my period ended it is with the same partner and neither of us have had other sexual partners before. This is the second month this has happened and I worry it will come out during sex. I have been on a very light pill (Yaz) for about 3 years now and we do use condoms. I took a pregnancy test 3 days ago and it came out negative.

I had my period just over 2 weeks ago. I had sex with my boyfriend(who has had no previous partners) just after my period ended and we did use a condom we have regular intercourse and have been for about a year now. For the past few days iv been getting a thick brown discharge(no blood) every time I wipe. I have been on the pill for just over 3 years now but a very light one. I took a pregnancy test 3 days ago and it came out negative but this discharge is a concern for me. I have no abominal cramping or any other pain, weight gain or loss. Everything is normal. I am getting very worried as this is the second month this has happened and I worry he sees it aswell. It is not heavy enough to use a tampon or panty liner and doesn't have any sort of odour. What could be the cause of this as I am starting to worry but do not have time to go to my doctor as I'm away at Varsity. Please help!

A little off topic an I wish I could help u. I don't have insurance and am basically looking for help myself. I never had a reg period and am not on birth conrtol, I finally started to and one month I was bleeding dark brown discharge before my period, had my period. Then the next month the same but I had awful back pain, I couldn't walk. Went to the e.r and they after thinking I had a miscarriage said it was abnormal uteran bleeding.. Ever since I've had that same dark brown discharge about a week before my period ( which has been 2 months) and this time it's a week before, the brown happend, and now it's bright red heavily and clotting blood, consistent. No cramps, zits, or sore breasts like a normal period. Is this my period or what's going on????

My period started on 8/1/13. It lasted for about 4-6 days. I had sex the next day. With a condom. And I started spotting. Thats normal for me if I have sex right after my period ends. So I didn't think nothing of it. But today is 8/31/13 and im still spotting. More when I use the bathroom. Through out the day its fine. And the discharge is a dark brown almost black color. It has an embarrassing smell. Kind of reminds me of the smell that I have at the end of my periods (not pleasant). My stomach has had that kind of bloating feeling. Ive noticed that ive been using the bathroom more frequently as well. Im really worried. Do u know what this is that im experiencing?
