What causes brownish discharge before periods while using nuvaring?

20 yrs old...5.4 ft....146 lbs....on birth cntrl nothing other then tht medically. I am on the nuva ring not once have i had discharge or spotting ive been on the nuva ring for almost 3 years and not once have i had a pblm until now. I am going to assume you already know how the nuva ring works put a ring in for 3 weeks take it out for a week to have a menstral cycle well i still have another week an a half before my next period but i am having a light brownish discharge when i wipe but its not evry time an i have white.discharge on my underwear bit again not every time. I know it is normal to spot but i guess it scared me being thisthe first time. Also we don't use condoms we both have only been with eachother we are in love not the cheating type so there are no std or anything like that and he does pull out before he cums.

Hi,

NuvaRing sometimes cause spotting or bleeding in between cycles. If you want to rule out pregnancy do urine pregnancy close to your periods date. If there is heavy bleeding I spite of NuvaRing and if it is before the due date, kindly consult your doctor immediately.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
