OK, I have been on birth control for abut 6 years and have never experienced any side effects like spotting and so on. I have not always taken them at the same time, and occasionally(i use this word lightly) I forget one and take it the next day like normal. But this morning (Friday) I woke up to some brown discharge like you'd usually get a day before a period. I haven't missed any pills but I have been taking them at odd times. I have been doing so for 6 years however, and this is the first time I've had discharge with 7 active pills to go.. anyone got a clue what's going on? I am sexual active, don't use condoms and every time my boyfriend and I have had sex, he ejaculate's in me. Never had a pregnancy scare before either. Thanks in advance for any answers.
