Brown discharge for a month(2 Posts)
Wondering if anyone can help me.
I came off the pill in April and was diagnosed with pcos in august.
Between august and November I had a couple of regularish cycles, 32-34 days.
Then in early December I started having brown discharge on day 28 of my cycle.
It’s there when I wipe and sometimes in my underwear (not enough to fill a pad, but enough to be noticeable).
It’s now been 34 days of this every single day, has anyone else experienced this?
It’s probably linked to your pcos and your progesterone levels. While you were on the pill, your hormones would have been regulated so that’s why you’re only getting it now. I used to always have 4/5 days of brown bleeding before my period arrived in the few years after stopping the pill. After I had my ds, it improved. I’m now getting brown spotting a lot as I’ve had the mirena coil fitted, which has progesterone in it. Best thing I can suggest is to keep a record of your cycles and any inbetween spotting, as you will need this if you get referred at some point (if it continues).
