Late and Brownish Period?

Hey Ladies! Just wanted to see if I'm not alone in this. AF came a week late after our second month of TTC (I think it was late because we travelled to Europe and I just stopped taking the pill at the end of July). My question is, my period was lighter than it normally is and significantly more brownish than redish? Has this happened to anyone else? Is it just because it it took longer to get all that "junk" out it turns brown? Thanks!
