Dear Betty,

I started using the Nuva Ring for the first time this past month.  I took out the ring after the 21 days. . . a day before I removed it I noticed a brownish discharge.  I immediately called the doctor and was relieved to hear that this is normal.  However, I am now on my second day after removing the ring and all I continue to do is bleed this brownish discharge.  I'm nervous and don't know what to expect. . . Help!?!?


Dear Help!?!?

You are probably just having a lighter period this month.  If so, the brownish or pink discharge is normal.  If you have any other questions or concerns about using the Nuva Ring or your menses, make an appointment with the SHCC for a consult.
