I took the pill for approx 8 months several years ago. Was dating a guy whose ex-girlfriend worked at Planned Parenthood, and from her he knew a lot. I started having the weird brown stuff for the first time ever. He said it was normal.<br><br>
Weird, but normal. For being on the pill, that is. It's always happened for the beginning and end of my periods ever since, even though I was only on them for a short amount of time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

That's totally within the range of normal for being on the pill. Some women will stop bleeding monthly altogether, some will continue their normal periods, and others will get lighter and lighter - I was on the pill for about two years, and toward the end, my "period" was a joke - just a couple days of (mostly brown) spotting at the end of the placebo week.<br><br>
If you're really worried, you can talk to your doctor or clinician, but it sounds completely normal to me.<br><br>
Edited to add - Mods - can we get this moved to Fertility instead of TTC? (How does one handle a post in the wrong spot? "Report Post" is only for bad posts, not perfectly legitimate ones that got started in the wrong area, right?)
