Is it normal to have a brown spotting and then a heavy discharge after using oral contraceptive ?
It is truly annoying that.. Please help. I noticed I had spotting of brown discharge for like a week I use an oral contraceptive- Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo to be exact, and for some reason starting this month s cycle, I noticed I had spotting of brown discharge for like a week, to the point where it started to get heavy. I ve been using tampons all month but I was wondering why I have this heavy of a flow when I shouldn t be due for my period for another 5 days. I ve been on the pill for two years now so my cycle is regular. During this time I ve also gotten my annual pelvic exam by my doctors at planned parent hood and they said everything looked normal. This isn t the first time I ve had my period for like a month straight before.. Is this normal?
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Such kind of prolonged brown discharge can be due to hormonal irregularities. You need to get your self examined and take proper medicines from a gynaec to regularize your cycles.
