I've been on my birth control (pills) for a month now, but I have taken them in the past before. I am 2 days away from my period but I've been having dark brown discharge for about 3 days now. Today I noticed that there is some blood mixed with the discharge. There has also been some cramping but I have always cramped before my period came. I'm not sure if this makes a difference but my last date of intercourse was the 1st (today is the 7th).
