hi,
i'm nineteen years old and have been on tricyclen-lo for about a year. i have never had any sort of discharge before my period, usually just cramps the day before. however i am due for my period in about a week and am having a lot of brown (sometimes almost pink) discharge and lots of cramping. i don't think there's a possibility i could be pregnant as i haven't had sex since before my last period, so i really don't know what is going on. any help?

Hi there! Vaginal discharge is normal and varies during your menstrual cycle. A brown discharge may occur when you are ovulating/mid-cycle. Sometimes early in pregnancy you may have spotting or a brownish discharge at the time your period would normally come. If you have spotting at the time of your normal period rather than your usual amount of flow, and you have had sex without using birth control, you should check a pregnancy test. Menstrual flow often consists of several layers, which include old blood, endometrial lining, nutrients etc. All these layers are discharged together as menstrual flow. However, at times only a layer of nutrients may be discharged before the actual menstrual flow. This causes the brown discharge before period. Polyps are yet another cause of brown discharge. Polyps are the groups of cells that have grown abnormally inside the uterus. In short, these are the tumors that have originated due to several reasons. Mostly, they are of benign nature, therefore rarely a cause of concern. The brown discharge is the result of the bleeding of the polyps in the uterus. It is a well established fact that contraceptive pills interfere with the hormones in the body. They regulate your menstrual cycle by changing the levels of the hormones involved in menstruation and pregnancy. However, if you fail to take the pills as per the prescription, then you might get a brown discharge before period.
