About a month ago I saw my doctor because I have like severe pains in my legs while I'm on my period. So my doctor wanted to see if I didn't have a period if my legs would still hurt. So he put me on birth control, since I can't take pills I'm on the Ortho Evra patch. Instead of wearing a patch for 3 weeks and then not wear one the 4th week when I would normally have my period I'm supposed to just start a new pack. Well about 2 weeks ago when I should've started my period I just got like this brown discharge stuff I usually got on the last day of my periods then like a week later (not sure if it caused this) but I ended up getting sick and then I started my period like real heavily. This is the 9th day that I've been on my period (still wearing a patch) and actually bleeding not the brown stuff. Should I be worried about this? Because it just don't seem normal to me.

If the bleeding goes on for more than another day or two, i would give your doctor a call and ask him/her what s/he'd like you to do.
