Brown Period – About to start the pill

Patient: About to start my first ever pack of the pill; however, my discharge is brown? Told to take it on the first day of my period – is this my period and still okay?My diet has changed to less meat recently, my periods are regular and I did have my normal pre-period symptoms of cramps and tiredness.

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your query.You can probably wait for another day or two to see if the period starts of regularly and wit h good flow. Since you say that you are also having all your premenstrual cycle symptoms as well it must be the beginning of your cycle.Hope that answers your query. Have a good day.
