I have been on and off the Pill (Nordette) and instead of my periods I have been getting a blackish, browny coloured discharge. I was advised by the pharmacist to take a pregnancy test which proved to be negative. I've still not had a proper period yet (for about 2-3 months). I would like to induce it - please could you advise what I should do? Thanks.
I'd suggest that you see a gynaecologist to find out why you are not having periods, though the brown discharge sounds like it could be a light period.
