You're okay. This happens sometimes but it's not abnormal your period sometimes self-adjusts. If you were to get another period say 2 weeks from now, then I would advise that you give your doctor a call.

Have a great day!

Hi girlygirl11,

Brown discharge can be one of two things in your case: either your patch is causing you to spot, which can be a side effect. Or when you had sex you "loosened" up some old, pooled blood and that's why you are now experiencing brown discharge.

There's nothing to be concerned about. I hope you changed your patch immediately when you remembered that it was supposed to be changed and please set an alarm or something to remind you that it should not be worn for longer than 7 days.
