    Default Periods

    HiI came off the pill in jan and planning on ttc in may. Since stopping the pill my periods are virtually non existent and small amount of dark brown blood/discharge and is not red. I don't even need to wear tampons just thin liners. Periods have never been heavy. What are your periods like? Should I mention it to the doctor? Why isn't it red? Thanks!!

    Brown blood is old blood. I came off bc in Jan also and my periods were exactly the same as ur describing. We ttc straight away but it took me 3 cycles to concieve. I never had a red blood period before I concieved and everything is fine with me. Every womans body is different though. Give it time for all those hormones to sort them selves out. You could see ur gp if u wanted, but it all sounds normal to me.
