It continued like that for 6 days and then seemed to stop. Last night when I got intimate with my boyfriend it was still there just not coming out. I was so embarrassed. That's day 8. And there has been no bleeding, just this brown spotting, it's really gross. When will it stop? Should I call my gynecologist? Are these type of periods normal?
Nora-Be - This is my first period on Nora Be. But it was weird. Just spotty and brown?

Yeah I used to skip my period all the time on my old birth control but it was a mixed hormone pill. I had to switch to progestin only due to my migraines.
you are fine just getting rid of some old lining is what that is. When I was on progeston only I did not have a period at all. If this were to turn bright red and you get bad cramps make sure to go in to the ER right away, or if you get sudden severe cramps with no bleeding, or you start bleeding and fill a pad in 2 hours or less you must go to the ER for any of this issues. Unfortunately for me I waited to long and ended up needing a transfusion and I ended up with pelvic inflammitory disease and spent a week in the hospital. So please do not wait I was on progestron only.
I used to be on loestrum (which was the one with estrogen and progesterine). About two months ago they switched me off of that since I had a migraine (once in my life 4 years ago after a concussion, I didnt want to be switched but they made me). I had been on it since September 2010. I never missed a pill and always had sex with a condom.
It took a whole pack of Nora Be and about a week into the second one to get my period. I was stressed the entire time worrying about my period being late. But everywhere I read said that is normal getting off pills.
I got my period finally. It started brown then got really heavy... Lasted about 6 or 7 days. Which was normal before I started the pill.
Then like you said.. it seemed to stop (I still had some cramps but figured that was due to being hungry or something)... so I had sex. We wore a condom, and we always pull out, but the condom like fell off- we're 95% sure it was when he pulled out, and he pulled out on time and we had the condom on before that...
Then yesterday I found more of the brown.. I've been wearing a pad. It's brown... anywhere from light to dark.. Then there was just a little bit of blood in it.. and I got scared so I came online.
I'm worried. I talked to a doctor yesterday but couldn't get a full appointment. She said it was probably because of the pill then said, most likely because of the pill then said "yes its the pill" then said let's get you an appointment.
I'm scared. I've -never- missed a pill. I take them at exactly the same time everyday... never missed that... and have always worn a condom and on top of that always pulled out... so what is going on with me! I'm just as scared and confused as you, but it helps to know I'm not alone.
I'm to scared to take a pregnancy test, and I don't have my own car so getting to the doctor is hard.
