Hi- so last month, I wanted to get my period earlier so I wouldn't have it for my birthday. I started my sugar pills on my 2nd to the last active pill. ( I have the 28-day ortho tri cyclen). Since doing so, my boyfriend and I have messed around- he's never came inside of me though. This coming Friday the 5th I'm supposed to start my sugar pill again but Tuesday the 2nd, I had some cramping, lower back pain, and brownish vaginal discharge. The discharge occured again the next day. I've been on BC for 4 years and have always been religious in taking it until I started my sugar pills early last month. Could this abnormalness be due to hormonal fluctuations because I messed with my cycle or should I have cause for other concern? Thanks!

I think you're right on the money with your guess about hormonal fluctuation. I would not be alarmed at all, just continue to take the pills as directed. Many women manipulate periods this way but it does no harm.
