    The brown discharge is old blood that your body is getting rid of. When you miss pills, you trigger a period generally, if you are off them for a couple of days. If you had sex, you could get pregnant, just a warning.

      Thanks for your comment I am just wondering if I could be pregnant would it show on a test yet ? And would I get that discharge over 2 days on and off ?

      The discharge can last for up to a week, similar to a normal period. In some people, they get a few drops once or twice. In other people, they get it for a week, or even 14 days before their period re-regulates itself. The best way to ensure that you receive an accurate pregnancy test is to wait until your first missed period (if you miss) and then wait the 7 days that your period could occur during, and then test the day after your period would normally end. If you don't get a period, you could be pregnant,  but not necessarily, your body could still be re-regulating itself getting used to the birth control again OR you could be missing your period because of stress. If you are concerned, you can always consult your doctor.

      Hi Im Destiny I'm 15 , I had to start taking birth control because of the pain from my cycle , I was to stubborn to take it . Now I've gotten over it and started taking it over a week ago , which means I'm now on week two, I just forgot to take it because of the hours I decided to which was 11:00 pm. It's now Saturday and I stopped taking it Monday , yesterday I noticed my stomach was feeling weird kind of like I was starting my period , i took notice into that as well because just last week my period ended a week from now . I notice some thick brown discharge , which was blood When I went to use the bathroom. ever since then the pain has gotten worse and it feels like I'm on my period I have really really bad cramps I can't fall asleep now and it's almost 5:00 IN THE MORNING! , I still plan on taking the pills but how do I make up for those four pills ? Should I start another pack?
