Hi,

Marvelon is an oral contraceptive pill which is to be taken regularly for at least one month before it will give protection against pregnancy. It will not give protection against pregnancy if used only after unprotected sexual intercourse.

Marvelon will not help to avoid pregnancy in your case.

You need a prescription for an emergency contraceptive pill which needs to be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse. Do consult your doctor for the same.

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
