I have just started my 3rd pack of BCP and the last two months were in sync almost. 1st week of pills: nothing. 2nd week of pills: spotting/brown discharge for a couple days. 3rd week of pills: nothing. 4th week of pills (placebo pills): nothing, then one day or two of brown discharge. But no real period. Is this normal? Or do I need a different kind of BCP?
I am on birth control pills to control my endometriosis. The brown discharge at times is normal for me, but when I go off or take the placebos, it does change and gradually become a full menses over a few days. According to my research, it is important for our bodies to have the bleeding at least some months (I have my cycle every three months), to keep functioning properly. So I think it is important to talk to your doctor about finding one that works right for you. Good luck!
