I would like to postpone my period due to a vacation I have coming up. I am currently on birth control and have been for five years. I am on Junel. In order to time my period right, I would need to take a pack but extend the placebo stage to about ten days rather then seven. Is this safe? Is the birth control still effective once I start a new pack after the ten day placebo break?

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?
