Old blood like vaginal discharge, should I be worried about it?

I've been experiencing a brownish (old blood like) vaginal discharge (without any abdominal pain or other symptoms) for 3 days. This never happened to me before and I'm terrified. I am 33 years old and have been taking oral contraceptive pills (Mercilon 28) for almost 5 months already. I have never had any side-effects from taking this pill and never missed my period. My cycle is exactly 28 days. I had my last period from February 27

Have you missed any doses of the pill?  If not, a quick call to the doctor may not be a bad idea.  Unexplained vaginal bleeding can indicate many things.  It could also be a sign of a bacterial std.  You may want to rule that out just to be safe.

I just realised that I missed one tablet pill this week...so I took 2 tablets last night as suggested on Mercilon web site. The symtom still persists. I think I'm gonna see my gyno anyway.

Thank you so much for all comments.

I recently had some troubles with this brown spotting, after being on my new pill for 3 months. I was spotting for 12 days!

Up until that point I had had no problem - it was really weird. I also was skipping though, but there had been no problems the other months.

It's probably that your body is still adjusting to the new hormones -- 5 months is a little bit strange. If it continues for more than a week or two I might go/call your Dr.
