Came off my period, I was like 10 days on my period. Last two days I was very light. Everything stopped, Now sometimes, when I go to the bath room, and wipe, I see "brownish" on the toilet paper. It's on my underwear too sometimes. Like, It will go away for like three days, and then one day it'll be back again. I've been seeing this the past week now. Like I said, I am on Birth Control pills to regulate my period, since I was off for a year, because I am over weight. Also, I get this "yellowish" discharge on my underwear.. But I've had that before, (I have a bacterial infection) I am on pills for that also right now. My boyfriend and I done something sexual today, and thats when I seen the "brownish" on his fingers. (I am a virgin, He's never spermed or anything like that) but you know what I mean... I am wondering, If the "Brownish" is from my period, where I am not normal, Like I said it goes and comes. My doctor said it's completely normal for me to be on my period for over a week or so, since I am not normal yet, and the birth control pills is regualrting it. Should I worry about seeing this "brownish" stuff?

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

Your doctor is correct.  Your body is still adjusting to the hormones in the birth control.  Soon your period will normalize.  Brown discharge is simply "old blood." 

Using tampons while taking medication for a bacterial infection can sometimes make the medication less effective.  So if you finish the medication for the infection but still have yellow discharge and other symptoms, you might need to have another treatment.

Alright, Thanks. I don't use tampons, I've never have. I use only pads. And I am on the medication, for bacterial infection, and clogged pores (one pill) for six months, Which ends in September. I only started taking it in March. So therefore, I will not stop taking the medication until September. But, as for the Birth Control I have no idea when I will stop taking that. I was off of my period for over a year, and then came on three months in a row, one wee, two weeks and then basically three weeks, well two weeks, and 4 days. So my doctor put me on Birth Control, to regulate my period. the first month I took the birth control, I came on so I'm assuming, it's working. But, Like I said I've been off for about a week, and two days now, and sometimes, when I go to pee, I wipe? Like everyone do, Everyone girl anyways, shah. & I'll see like brownish, on the toilet paper, but in a hours time, It will be gone, and won't come back for like three days, +. So, I asked my Mother about it, She's saying it's where I am not normal on my period, and it's still regulating, from the birth control. I'm assuming, she's right, since you just said that too. Thank-you!! :) Thankyou!!
