Customer Question
I'm on the birth control...
I'm on the birth control Aviana. I have been on it for 3 months. I finished my period and started a new pack on September 2nd. On September 3rd I took the pill and then had sex. Now the last few days I have been getting stringy brown discharge. I still have 7 more pills to take before my period. I'm getting worried that maybe the pill didnt work. Although I have been taking it every day. I'm also std free. Please let me know what this brown discharge is. Thanks

Some break through bleeding or discharge like this can occur while taking hormonal contraceptive as they alter your hormone levels so this is most like due to hormones. There is nothing much to worry about as far as it is not fresh bleeding, it can be old discharge from your period as well. So wait and monitor for now.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
