Trying to conceive. Had period, brown discharge, mucus. Was on ogestrol bc pills. Help?


I stopped taking low ogestrol bc pills after my last active pill, this is when my cycle was about to start. I got my cycle. 2 weeks later I had another cycle that last 3-4 days. After that 2 days later I had spotting which was brown & mucous like. Then it stopped for 2 days & I had spotting for 1 day with the same brown mucousy color. Is this normal after stopping birth control? I had a annual pap last month & everything was normal. I am tryin to conceive & this is making it hard. I stopped the pills on March 9.

Thanks for the query.
after stopping the hormonal pills it will take some time for regularization of the cycles.
The spotting you had could be withdrawal bleeding due to stopping the pill.
So you wait and watch the next cycle.
If the same thing repeats consult gynecologist once and take tablets to stop the spotting and for regularization of the cycles.
After that you can plan for pregnancy by racking the ovulation and having unprotected intercourse around that time.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
