Hi i had a question. I started taking a 28 day pack birth control pill about a month ago (ortho tri cyclen lo) and so far my period isn't here yet, but about an hour ago i had pinkish discharge that i thought was the beginning of my period, but then it turned brownish. I just want to know if this is normal since i'm new to taking the pill and if this is just my body getting used to it.

Yes - spotting or irregular bleeding is a very common side effect of starting hormonal birth control. [Smile]
