Question: brown discharge
|EricaM14 - Thu Jun 30, 2005 4:08 pm||
I'm 14 years old,and I just started using Ortho Evra birth control patches to stop the bad cramps I get during my period.This my third week using them,and I've recently been getting this brown discharge.It has no odor,it's just an odd colo and is very noticeable.Any ideas on what's causing it?

"Brown discharge" would be considered old blood. This may occur due to a change in level of hormones, or due to the uterus not completely shedding the products of menstruation etc.
