Re: problems after stopping birth control
Yes the brown discharge, also known as spotting is a common side effect of stopping birth control pills. Usually when you are on the pill (unless you use that seasonale pill)you have 3 weeks of "active" pills which contain a certain dosage of hormones, and then one week of placebo or inactive pills which contain no hormones (this is when you get your period each month). So when you stopped taking the pills, your body stopped getting that extra dosage of hormones, which would cause your period or some type of spotting. Give your body a couple months to get back to normal and get used to being off the pill.
