Question: brown vaginal bleeding


 molly33 - Fri Aug 19, 2005 4:55 pm

I've been on birth contol (the shot) for about a year. Lately I've been experiencing brown vaginal bleeding. It doesn't hurt at all, but every time I wipe I see brown blood. It's been happening for about 2 weeks consistently. What's wrong with me?

I'M NOT A DOCTOR OR NURSE BUT I HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME THING. IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD A PERIOD IN A WHILE THE LINING OF YOUR UTERUS GETS BUILT UP WITH BLOOD AND WILL START TO LEAK OUT.
