    Thumbs down Brown discharge for 3 weeks, HELP

    Hi guys
    So 3 weeks ago, I missed a pill (brevinor) and I took it the next morning as per my pills instructions. I skip my period for months at a time using the pill (I haven't had a period for a few months now) and that same day, I started experiencing period symptoms (bloating, cramps, mood swings etc). I also started experiencing a dark brown blood instead of the normal red. It behaved like a normal period, with clots and all that, except it didn't really go away. After a week and a half, it appeared to have stopped but it's just come back again, making it 3 weeks now of experiencing this issue.
    I should mention too that a week prior to missing the pill, I had been having extremely light spotting.

    I take my pill at the same time everyday and my partner doesn't ejaculate inside me. Is this just all the built up blood cleaning itself out of me? Is there a way to stop it?

    Probably since brown blood is simply old blood. Since you continue to take the active pills, you've probably got a lot of build up. You might want to take the week off next time around just to sort things out.
