Forget pills and brown discharge
Posted on: 07/18/2007
Hi. I have been having a brown discharge for the last about week or so. It's only a little bit at a time. I take birth control but seem to forget to take it sometimes. Does that have to do with it???
Yes, often when you forget your Birth Control pill you will get a little spotting. But you can also get pregnant when you forget your pills.
Has your doctor talked to you about the Nuvaring or Patch?? Both of these have the same hormones as the Birth control pills but you only need to remember to start them once a month.
