Brownish discharge before period starts

Common Questions and Answers about Brownish discharge before period starts


Well, it is not uncommon to have a bit of brown discharge (old blood) right before you start your flow. I have this sometimes about a day and a half <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> the full <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> starts. Why don't you give it a couple of days to see if your period shows up and if not, then take a test. Hopefully aunt flow is on the way!! Remember to use protection when having intercourse!
It seems to start right after my period and lasts for about 2 weeks and then about a week before my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> it goes away and then it starts all over again after my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>. It seems this has been going on for a few years now. I've been to my yearly exams and they haven't found anything on the PAP test, so I guess I'm okay but it just seems strange. Why all of a sudden have I gotten this. I have my daughter almost 4 years ago and it seems like it started a year or so after I had her. Any ideas?
My problem is, is that I think I am starting my period, but the discharge I am having is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish red, like dried blood. Is this a problem. I normally get cramps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> starts and so far I am not gotten them. My period should of started around the 2nd or 3rd and now with this dark discharge, i don't know if it is my period. Is this normal??

What does this mean. Please help me because I am realy scared. My period is due in a couple of days and now I am having this discharge but no blood spotting. PLease someone help me..Thanks.

It is the beginning of your period. I have read the post about the 13y/o but this time she is giving the right advice.
My period is not due for a week but yesturday I started with some on and off light cramping and this morning when i wiped i had brown discharge. Is it normal to have this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish spotting one week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> when on clomid or could i finally be pregnant?
but i started noticing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> about 11 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> was due and then it got a little heavier for a few hours.. and now it's just a clear discharge that's slightly pink..this has lasted for about 5's been very light and usually only when i wipe...and i havn't really had any cramping. i'm not due to get my period for another five days..could this be implatation bleeding or is it somthing else?
It's comforting to see that I'm not dying! I have this brown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> AND after my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>!! I usually will bleed for a couple days, but I will have the brown discharge for like 5 days or so before and after my cycle. I also have an odor and I have no idea why! I'm 21 years old, don't have any kids, have never been pregnant, and haven't been sexually active for months. Any ideas?
Hi. For past few years I have light/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> which starts about a day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> the period.. It does help as periods arent 'accidental' in my case but still I think I need to know WHY IS THAT? I never had sex or any hormonal therapy. Moreover I hv bn menstruating since the age of 9 and now I am 27, having severe mood changes and sometimes missing periods for past two years, could I be having menopasue?
I called my GYNO and spoke to the nurse. She said your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> starts when you see the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish spotting. This is considered the start of your period. My last period started on August 5th. On August 31st in the afternoon, I noticed brown spotting. This brown spotting has been very light. As of September 4th, I am still experiencing this light brownish spotting. My breasts are bigger and tender. I have experienced no bright red blood or spotting.
the dark brown or black <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> starts from may 20 till now may 25. short saying, what is your conclusion about my condition? can you do some help or either advice... huhuhuhuhu im crying..
Hello all. So, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> usually starts late within the month (25th-31st it could start) but it is only the 10th of the month and I've been spotting. The spotting does get on my panties. It's brownish, but when I wipe its a light red color. I have been having unprotected sex pretty regularly, so I'm afraid that this could be a sign of pregnancy. I haven't had any other symptoms though. What is going on?
You have more chance to get pregnant having unprotected sex two weeks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> than the day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>. Ovulation usually occurs approximately 2 weeks into the middle of your cycle. Sometimes women don't ovulate in the 2 week period - maybe you're one of them. If you unsure if you're pregnant, than take a HPT or get a blood test from your GP or GYN.
Yes, you should test or go to your doctor. I think alot of women have brown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> there period starts. I know I have in the past.
This year I am having amazingly heavy periods, as well as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> that starts right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> begins, and this time I am noticing that I am having the discharge During the period as well. It is watery and brownish, even a little yellowish, and is definitely different than the blood. I also have had a couple of occasions where I have had 2 periods in one month (meaning the periods started 2 weeks apart). I am 54, almost 55 and have not yet entered menopause that I know of.
Is light brown spotting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> starts normal? my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> is due any day now. it usually comes between 25-28 days every month. anyhow, last night i went pee and when i wiped there was some very light brown spotting on the tissue. i assumed my period was starting. this morning the same thing but no period (just light brown spotting). now i just went pee again and it is the same thing. i usually don't have spotting right before my period?
I'm not sure about the first three discharges, consult a MD for that. But the fourth brown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>, could be blood. I have the same problem, usually just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> my period starts. Occasionally after. But I spoke to my OB and he told me that it is dried blood. Sometimes your body, especialy people with irregular periods, have blood that dries around the cervix and that discharge is finally releasing it. It is always good to consult your physician for any questions like this.
I had some very light white discharge (during the time I had brown discharge). Frankly, my doctor advised me that it wasn't anything and that if it was bright red blood or white grayish matter not to be concerned. Maybe yeast. You still will want to have it examined. As for vomiting, I had hardly no morning sickness with my first 3 but did with my fourth. I am expecting again and did not vomit so don't think because you don't something is wrong.
[pre-*** could have done it] i have an irregular <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>, so i dont know if these are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> cramps or not. i usually cramp for a few days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> i get my period[and the cramps r bad] well i cramped...but no period, and the cramps have gotten less painful. what r my chances of being pregant?
but anyways. a few days ago, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> was almost a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish was very nasty looking, i assumed it was because i just finished my period but im not sure...i have sex with my boyfriend both protected and unprotected, i dont thinkt hat has anything to do with it, but im not sure once agian.... i really would like an answer to know what this is...
I got my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> nov 16.. it ended nov 21... its been a week and im now spotting a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish red colour and theres some clots when i wipe.. I had the copper iud inserted march 9 2013.. my periods were heavier with cramps. Starting september they got lighter with no cramps, colour changed to a bright red. Not thick it also starts off with this brown discharge then turns onto light bright red bleeding then gets heavier as days go.. Never had spotting a week after though...
I have had the Mirena for about 4 years now. I have had a lot of problems with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> and a few days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> I spot a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish colored dishcharge for a day or so. It is embarrassing for me to have sex with my husband with the lights on because I never know what my underware is going to look like....I know GROSS!!!!! The ONLY good thing is that my periods are short BUT they are very heavy and my cramps are painful, I rarely cramped before the IUD.
Since my periods resumed after having a baby I have light discharge of a brownish colour for a few days before the usual heavier red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> starts. Which of these is the start of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>? Is it the the brown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> or the red bleeding? I need to know in order to estimate my ovulation time.
) You will often find that right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> starts it is very dry and almost chalky. Then you might get a discharge of a light brown. This is because the blood leaving the uterus doesn't just come out like a tap, but takes a couple of days to travel through the cervix and out the vagina. Rest assured you are normal. Only if it becomes smelly or always stays a certain colour should you worry. Best wishes on being a woman!
I had the same thing happen to me back in July/Aug of this year and I could not find any answer so I will share my experience with you. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>brown</span>ish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> presented the same way, after a bowel movement. I went to the docotr the next day and had an ultrasound-it was normal-but my bhcg was low for my 6 weeks gestation. I had a follow up u/s a week later and a bchg-still low, but a normal heart rate on u/s with a small gestational sac.
