Right first of all i am sorry to ask this but have you been having sex with 1 partner, or more than one, and do you know them well? I appreciate that these are personal questions so you may private message me if you wish but it is just so i can get an idea of what is happening with you as if you have more than one partner or do not know your sexual partner well and have been having unprotected sex with them then there is AS ALWAYS a chance you could catch STIs/STDs which birthcontrol does not prevent unlike pregnancy. However if you have been missing pills or taking them at different times then there is a risk of pregnancy too. May i ask that you answer the questions for me then i can expand and try and help you more.

Right ok then, well considering the discharge is white it doesnt usually mean infection, but watch out if it turns yellow, itchy, or if you get sore. Do you only get it when you urinate? Confused It could be possible that you are pregnant as an increase in vaginal discharge can be a symptom and it is possible that the brown could have been implantation bleeding and headaches could also be a sign, do you have any other symptoms? I suggest that you take a hpt just for peace of mind and if it is positive then visit your doctor asap, however if it is negative then you could just have had a very light period and as for the white discharge, it is very normal to get WHITE discharge as it is your body's way of stopping infection in that area. Your headaches could just be related to the stress of worrying about it. Try to relax! Good luck!!

In that case i really think that you should get a hpt asap because without scaring you this could also be a sign of miscarriage (if you were pregnant). I dont have anymore suggestions as to what it could be apart from pregnancy, miscarriage, and just nothing to worry about. I will ask some more supporters or moderators for you to help give some advice.

Hi, urs4evernalways1!
emmalouise92, have given you a great support!
Everything she said is correct.
Experiencing spotting or light menstrual flow at the time of normal menstrual period can be a sign of implantation bleeding (is believed that spotting is caused by the fertilized egg burrowing into the uterine lining).
About 50% of women who experience bleeding during early pregnancy will continue to have a normal pregnancy. However, up to 50% of women will experience a miscarriage at some point after the bleeding starts.
Cramping in early pregnancy is not only common but very normal.
It could be implantation cramping, followed by cramping due to growing uterus, that prepares for carrying a baby.
Increased discharge is a normal part of pregnancy, too, and its reason is to keep the vagina and womb from infections.

All these changes, especially bleeding and cramping (if it is too intense) can be a sign of miscarriage.
Vaginal infections can lead to vaginal bleeding and spotting between two normal menstrual periods.
My suggestion is to get a pregnancy test and ultrasound check up by your gynecologist.
Tests for STD's are important, too.

Have you noticed some breast changes, like getting darker spots at the area around your nipples?

How long have you been on birth control?

These could all be pretty simple side effects from the birth control pills.

Because you've been missing pills, take a pregnancy test. If you don't take your pills correctly then you need to either use a back up method or just switch to a completely different method (one you'll stick to).

If you are having discharge when you urinate you could also have a kidney infection. Kindey infections can cause cramping like menstration and pain. Good luck!

I'd just like to add that birth control pills do not protect against STD's. It's a good idea all-around to use condoms along with your birth control pills. Not only will it help protect you against pregnancy (especially since you're missing your pills sometimes) but it will help protect you from STD's. Even if your boyfriend is faithful, he could have gotten an STD from his first girlfriend. There are STD's that males can carry that cannot be detected on routine STD screenings, like HPV.

Hi everyone,

kind of worried here so it'd be great to get some input ..

i had sex with my bf 14th dec, and took plan b postinor 2, 2 pills in 24 hours with a 12 hour interval about 44 hours after. Got my period about a day or 2 early on the 24th dec, and it lasted about 2 days longer than usual, and ended on the 28th , faded altogether on the 29th dec. It was somewhat heavier than usual, but this could have been due to the fact that i was very tired. I was active again on the 30th, but very briefly, and i mean extremely,( penetration was only about 5 seconds? )
On the 7th of jan i experienced some light pink discharge which was rather thick, and on the 8th i put on a pad to be safe, and found some dark brown discharge on it. 9th jan, there was some white/yellowish discharge. 10th jan there was some thick, slightly milky discharge when i wiped ( it was stretchy) ( sorry tmi. just worried )
my period is usually pretty regular, about a 28 day cycle, and i usually get spotting 2 or 3 days before my period, so i'm not sure what to think. does anyone have any idea what it could be?
Also, i had cramps for a few minutes on the 8th night, and pelvic pain on the 9th night for a few minutes, as well as slight pain on the left side on the 8th night, and on the 10th jan, my right breast hurt very slightly even though there was no pressure on it or anything.

Any information or input would be greatly appreciated. thank you
