Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Brown stains means old blood. Blood does change color with time so I would not worry about the brown color itself.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would not worry too much at all and would resume the pill as scheduled i.e. at the weekend.

Dr. Shahzad MD :
