Yesterday night I had some weird brownish discharge. It didn't look bloody, but was more of a light brown colour. I am on Alesse 21 and take my pill faithfully within the same hour and a half time frame every day, and have never missed one. My boyfriend and I aren't having sex but we do pretty much everything else. Is this something to worry about? Is it just a bit funny-coloured normal discharge? My period is due soon, but I am still on the active pills for one more day. I'm really scared that somehow through accidental genital contact or something I have gotten pregnant, even though I know that it is nearly impossible and also sort of dumb. Help!

Hi There,

No, this is nothing to worry about. Spotting, light bleeding between withdrawal bleeds, is a common side effect while on the pill. A brown colour to discharge often indicates a bit of old blood in it. Since you're so close to your ithdrawal bleed, that's probably what's happeninghere. Again, notng to worry about.

Thanks. I just tend to panic if something abnormal happens with my period.
