discharge

Ever since than i have been having brown discharge before my period. Somtimes it it very lite and sometimes it can be very dark. When i do have my period it only lasts for a couple days. And after that i am normal until about five days before my period. Is there somthing wrong with me?
Yes it's normal. Brown blood in your discharge is old blood...which is pretty common to have just before starting your period...getting rid of what was left in there before your new period begins.
I am 22 and I have been on the pill for about 2 1/2 years now... my period is very regular and I have pretty much never had spotting. For the first time today I have a rather thick brown discharge that I've never seen. I'm expecting my period in 3 days or so and it is just worrying me, I dont know if i can wait 3 more days to make sure i'm not pregnant. I have occasionally gotten brown discharge after my period but never before...
I've read that a few days before your period its normal to have some brown discharge (old blood)- and thats what it looks like to me, but is it normal this far before having your period?? Is there something else this can be attributed to?? I am sexually active and I did miss a pill or 2 this month (which I took later or the next day to catch up). Is there a way to tell this discharge apart from implantation bleeding (just in case!!
Thats very normal to have brown discharge right before, and right after. Its old blood. Sometimes youll get it, sometimes you wont.
brown discharge before your period is veryyy normal it is the old blood from your last period making its way out before your current one no worries
Unlikely. Brown discharge is old blood and often will precede or follow a period. There are a lot of things that can cause problems conceiving. Are you ovulating, do you have a proper luteal phase length, age can play a factor, certain hormone levels in your body. Have you seen a doctor?
So i was wondering yes i know brown discharge can happen before your period and after as your body gets rid of old blood. But for me ive never had brown discharge before my period . So 9 days before im suppose to start my period i went to wipe and realized it was brownish. so i decided to put a tampon in. and 3 hrs later i took it out. It was brown. Weird for me since this hasnt happened before. I want to know is this a symptom of pregnancy?
Brown discharge is old blood which most women get before and just after a period is finishing, it is nothing to worry about and i really don't think you are pregnant.
so do u think its normal to have brown discharge about 10 days before period for only 1-2 days? and i dont have my period yet dont know whats wrong cant ask anyone please anyone help....
Every once in awhile, right before my period, I will have a dark brown dishcharge when I wipe after I go pee. It is also there after my period as well. It doesn't hurt or itch but it does smell a little bit. I thought it was just "old" blood, but I'm not so sure because of the way it smells. Any suggestions on what it might be?
Well, Could you possibly have been pregnant and having a chemical (which means super early) miscarriage?? Brown discharge is usually old blood. The chunks are odd too. Can you go to your doctor about this dear? That might be the best thing at this point. Especially if this continues. Does it itch at all?
I'm in the same vote at the moment was just wondering what yours turned out to be? It's about a week before my period and a week ago I had a brown lite discharge for 5 days it's finished now but I'm still concerned. Iv been on the same pill for 4 years and never bad anything like this I'm not stressed or have any change to my diet, it's probably nothing but just a bit concerned any help would be great.
well brown discharge is old blood, so maybe your period is tapering off, usually when your pregnant and you miscarry especially around when your period is due its usually like your normal period, was your period late at all ?
My 17 year old daughter is not sexually active (I'm positive) and has a medium amount of dark brown discharge (enough for a pad larger than a pantie liner) and it is one week before her period is due. The discharge is thicker in some spots and dryish, like stool, but is definitely coming from the vaginal area. It does not look or smell the same as stool or her period, so we know it is not either of those two options. Please let us know what this could be??
Im 21 years old and i just had my period a week ago and now I got home from the gym and I was bleeding brown blood. Thats never happened to me before. What does this mean? Should i be worried?
well its hard to say brown blood is old blood dark red is usual normal for a period so you might be just having a lite period or it might be a sign a pregnancy since your period is usual you should take a pregnancy test bleeding won't effect the results

Haha calm down.every girl has trhe same question. it's funny because you always feel awkward asking someone.but I used to get the after my period.take a p.
Hi, The brown blood/discharge is completely normal and usually happens at the beginning or end of your period. It's the body cleaning out the old blood and you really can't stop it from happening. I've also read numerous posts and agree myself, that it does seem to have more of a bad odor to it.
It could also mean that for whatever reason during your last menses the entire uterine lining failed to make a timely exit. This brown vaginal blood with discharge can also be due to your old blood retained after periods. Other causes could be polycystic ovarian syndrome, diseases of pituitary gland, hormonal imbalance of estrogen and progesterone and uterine abnormalities like fibroid and cervical dysplasia.
that is what happens be for and after you have your baby and your period i had that happen to me and when i went to the doctor they said that it was old blood that was from my period but if that still happens go to the doctor and see what they tell you tell them that you have that problem and take a pg test to see if you are pleas let me now how it go"s k.
Brown discharge can happen just before or just after a period. Brown blood is old blood, and is just your body's wayof flushing out what was left from the previous period. If in about 3-5 days your period hasn't shown, then it can't hurt to take a pregnancy test to be on the safe side.
Could just be that you had a very light period this month. If you are not on BC, take a pregnancy test! Brown discharge is just old blood, and it is sometimes seen after becoming pregnant.
I am 16 years old and I'm not suppose to get my period for another week or two. But all of a sudden the other day I found brown discharge in my underwear. What exactly could it be from? It cant be from my period because I haven't gotten it yet.
I had my period about two weeks ago, and now there's some brown discharge.. at first there was some traces of blood but it stopped and this happened two days ago. I have never had sex or have used birth control pills before. It's also sorta itchy down there as well.. could it be some sort of infection or is it just old blood from my last period?
