Common Questions and Answers about Brown discharge instead of period

discharge

I am only 22 years old. Over the past 3 months I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> instead of my period. It is not pink or red but completely brown. I have one heavy day of this and then 4 days it's so light that I barely notice it. It is every month just like a normal period and five days just brown. I live out of the country and it has taken me forever to get a Dr.Appt. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
My period comes like clockwork the second week of the month between Wednesday and Friday. Instead of my period I have had very slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>. I am on birth control and my boyfriend and I use condoms 100% of the time. I have read a lot about implantation bleeding...but I am not trying to get pregnant and have taken every precaution to avoid that. Could I be pregnant or is there something else this could be?
A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is usually a blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>. If the bleeding is quite slight then it takes longer to reach the outside world and turns from red or black to brown in the process. Such bleeding can be caused by all kinds of things - most commonly infections and erosions (these are raw patches on the cervix). There are many other possibilities and the only way to find out what is causing it is to go and see your GP and get examined or referred to a gynecologist for examination.
Two months ago I had protected sex on my period the next month I missed my period, and this month instead of a period i got this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> and now it has been continuing for about two weeks. I took four home pregnancy tests so i don't think that I am pregnant. What could cause this discharge? Is it just making up for my missed period? Or could I actually be pregnant? I was really stressed at the time of my first missed period and I still am, could this impact my period too?

Question..... I spotted instead of my period for the week I should have had my period. What are some reasons for this other than pregnancy. I also am not on birth control but very high stress.
The timing of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> in relation to your period would be important information to know in order to try to answer your question. Are you saying it was instead of a period? Have you taken a pregnancy test?
I missed my period in April, and this week I had cramps for about a day, then instead of a normal period I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> on and off for just under 3 days. What could this be?
I'm 44 years and i have missed 2 months of period and instead got 2 months of brown discharge?
I had unprotected sex 2 weeks ago and I am now 4 days late for my period and I'm getting abdominal pains and a lot of brown discharge, this only started today, what does it mean?
when your period starts and finishes every month it usually begins and ends with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span> instead of red blood, when i first got my period i was 12 and it was just brown not red. your next period should be more of a red blood and will get more heavy over time.
