Brown discharge or period ?

i am an OFW..2yrs dont have last period was Nov.6,2016 and it last 3days. I am expecting it to come again Dec.6 but it did not come. Unexpectedly i had unprotected sex (widrawal) Dec.8,2016 at 11:30pm and after we had it i start taking Contraceptive pills imediately at the time of 12midnight..even i don't have my period yet. Now im in the 2ndweek of taking pills everyday at the sametime. but i discover i had brown discharge i wonder if its already my period or what,? and is it safe to have sex again for this week?

Your period,I presume,has been altered a bit due to initiation of contraceptive pills.Do not worry.Just continue it and you will have an withdrawal after this pack.Yes, as two weeks have past since you have started pill;it is safe to have sex until you are a regular pill user.
