I am a mom to 3 children ages 5, 3, almost 1. I went back on the BCP in Feb and had normal periods until May. It was very light and only lasted 3 days. My breasts were sore (which never happens before my period only when I have been pregnant) and I had the same kind of bleeding at the very beginning of my third pregnancy. I kept taking the pill because HPT was negative then I did not get my period in June. The Sunday before I should have started in June I got some brownish discharge when I went to the bathroom (I got this with my second pregnancy) I have also had mild cramping, enlarged sore breasts, headaches, moodiness, and aching in my groin area (much like when I had vericose veins down there during my second and third pregnancies). I have taken several HPT's all negative (some I wasn't sure if I saw faint line or evaporation line). I finally called my gyn and went in for a blood test to check for pregnancy. They called the next day and said it was negative so I made an app't to talk to him. When I saw him the following week it had been 6 weeks since I had the "light" period. My doctor did not examine me at all and swore up and down that I had "pill amenorrhea". He told me that "most women feel lucky when they don't have a period". I explained to him that after being on the pill for 16 years and only getting off to get pregnant I have NEVER had this happen. I also told him that the only time I have ever had these symptoms is when I was pregnant. I asked him if the blood test could have been a false negative ( a phlebotomist had told me that if taken too early I could get a false neg.). He swore by the test. I just got the feeling that he was blowing me off even when I told him that if I wasn't pregnant I was worried about any other condition that could be going on. :mad: It is now 8 weeks since I had any bleeding and I'm not sure what to do. I stopped taking the pill after I didn't have my period in June b/c if I was pregnant I knew I shouldn't take it.

  • Your issue is kinda sorta in the same boat as mine but now that has been somtime, have you found what was wrong? This is my problem.... My periods are usually abnormal but for the past 3 months they have been normal. I do have a boyfriend and we do have unprotected sex, but he never ejaculates in me. I missed my period last week and yesterday when I woke up i had brown discharge. Its normal to have that after a period its just the remaining dried blood, but i don't know why it had occured since I missed my period. There jus a tiny bit today but hardly anything. I did take a home pregnacy test yesterday and it came back negative. So I don't know what is happening. There is no smell or any irrataion. Any advice, or answers would be very helpful. Also I'm 19.
