Brown spotting between periods health

Common Questions and Answers about Brown spotting between periods health


Avatar f tn I am a 20-year-old female. About 7 months ago, I began spotting between periods. It would happen once or twice a month, in the middle of my menstrual cycle, and would last 2-3 days. The blood was light brown in color. After this happened a couple times, I went to see a gynecologist. When I described it to her, she said it was normal and that it was because I was ovulating, and that it may have been caused by stress.
Avatar n tn Light bleeding/spotting between periods is very common and is usually just a small amount of blood from your last period that did not get expelled. It is usually kind of brown in color as it's "older" blood. If what you are seeing now is fresh (bright red) blood, I urge you to see a gynecologist. I would urge you to see the doctor either way to simply rule out any problem. If you use tampons during your period, there is some possibility they may be irritating your hymen.
Avatar n tn Well on Monday I spotted and then again today, but today other than the brown spotting, I have the red. I have been cramping(monthly feeling) since the procedure was done, I figured it was gas pains. I am not due to start until next week. I am on b/c and have been on these for over a yr. and have been on b/c for 6yrs and 7yrs prior to that (2 kids in between). I have never, ever spotted before. Any ideas?? My biopsy came back normal. this was done to see why I have heavy periods.
Avatar n tn The last two months I have had spotting almost constantly between periods and both months right around the time I am suppose to ovulate I have had sharp pains in my perineum (area between vagina and rectum) that only last a few minutes, usually at night and only one or two days. I have had a pap in the last year and have never had a bad one come back. Has anyone had similar symptoms??? I have a gyno appointment in 2 1/2 months, but I wonder if I should go sooner.
147932 tn?1226969710 Yesterday though I had some brown spotting in my underwear. It was kind of creamy looking and didn't exactly smell like blood. It smelled more awful than anything else. Since I have been to the bathroom many times and only once since has it been there. I am curious has this happened to anyone else? Should I worry? Also, I dont know if this means anything but I have been SERIOUSLY constipated and haven't moved my bowels in almost a week.
3248624 tn?1346992198 Now I'm 25 with four kids, its just cleaning your body out and the doctor will give you a pap smear to see if there is anything going on, he did that and the test came back normal for me and after the test, I still have those periods. My periods are 3-4 days heavy, then two days off and then 4 days regualr then two days spotting. It's been line this since I had my new baby.
130265 tn?1450986981 What is the main difference between spotting and light bleeding? I don't know what it is that I'm experiencing, and for me to define the difference would help. I don't have insurance so I can't go to the OB, and it costs $125 for bloodwork. The pink and brown stuff is only there when I wipe. This has been going on for 8 out of the last 9 days. It comes and goes. My period isn't due at least until this friday, and this started last monday. Light cramping, high temps. Coverline is 96.
Avatar f tn I was okay for one week. after that i started spotting (a thick mucus like brown dicharge) for couple of weeks along with knee joint and thigh pain. the third week i got my periods which was very heavy than usual. now its two weeks after the periods still i am spotting (which has not stopped after one week of IUD insertion). in between i bleeded and used the pad also.
Avatar n tn Maybe it's just spotting between periods. Sometimes it's a brownish color and doesn't look like blood.
796506 tn?1370191905 I am on the mini pill this month (and no I am no longer breast feeding) but every 14 days for the last 3 months I have had brown spotting (tmi) around the time of ovulation and it eventually turns into a full blown 6 day, painful period. So this has been happening twice a month for 2 months. Has anyone ever had this happen to them before? I am at a loss at what is going on. I am going in to see my doctor tomorrow but I would really like some input from your lovely ladies....
2020005 tn?1476662562 I saw my gynecologist yesterday about irregular periods and bleeding. Last month I only had brown spotting for 4-5 days, this month stopped my period and 3 days later, started right back up. I'll work out, and bleed after, have sex, bleed after. I finally had enough. I call my OB and discuss the issue, he says my birth control pills have been ineffective for me AGAIN - we switched pills about 5-6 months ago as well because they were ineffective for my body - and he's trying a new pill.
Avatar f tn Since may of this year, where I had a period that lasted 11days, every month after I've had two periods a month, lasting 3-7 days each, and the last 4 months in between periods i'm either spotting- bright red or pink discharge, or releasing old blood- brown liquid. maybe I get one full week each month of no blood- old or new- discharge. What's up with this?
Avatar n tn This morning it was like my period there was blood but it goes back to being just brown again by the end of the day sometimes so light i barley notice. I dont know what to even think?? You got any ideas?
Avatar f tn But the spotting could also be due to implantation. The brown blood does indicate old blood so it's possible. You are very fortunate to have such a caring family that is willing to help you. Good luck and I hope you get your answer soon.
Avatar n tn Ok next time you write someting down please type it properly im 19 and i can berly undrstand that, but as far as i can desifer you are on the pill are sexualy active and you are exeriencing brown spotting? i know this may sound discusting but is the brown spotting similar to a glue type consistancy?
Avatar n tn Nothing to worry about besides a lot of women have brown or sometimes even black colored periods. If the lightness of the period worries you go get checked out just to be sure. But I wouldn't worry about the coloring. Good luck !
Avatar n tn Also, there could be another culprit for "some" of you. Spotting between periods and/or after periods, etc. use to happen to me too. Found that in my case, it was simply due to my taking a vitamin supplement containing "iron". I found that "every single time" I took an iron supplement or a vitamin containing iron; or, "ate" anything iron rich, I would spot for several days.
Avatar n tn My spotting varies in color, like yours. Light Brown, Dark Brown/Red, Light Pink, you name it. It just depends on the month!
Avatar n tn Aside from the eye twitching I had for about a week and still get sporadically, now I am spotting blood vaginally after bowel movements. Sorry so gross! I have done this for 3 days now assuming my period is coming but it hasn't come. The blood was brown then red. I am thinking that my period is still coming to visit but unfortunately I just had it 2 weeks ago. Something like 19 days between beginning and this beginning.
Avatar n tn I have two kids and I do not want anymore kids. I also have irregular bleeding and spotting between cycles. I am wondering if anyone had the tubal ligation with this procedure. What was the recovery period like? Wondering if I should have the ablation only?
Avatar f tn Today i had a very very light and brown spotting today and am confused. Two days after i had the blood test i had unprotected sex and so i am not sure whether this is implantation bleeding or not. I do not have back pain but i have been getting a little dizzy when i stand up, along with the dull cramps, some constipation, and the brown blood. Im confused..
Avatar n tn I lost the first one in May 09' due to a blighted ovum. I just turned 6 wks today and have been having brown/dark brown spotting since about 4 1/2 weeks. I have not had any major cramping, just little pinches and pulls here and there. The spotting changes from light brown to very dark brown, and goes from light to heavy and back to light. Today i passed a very small clot about the size of a pencil eraser which was dark brown.
Avatar m tn For the past year she's been experiencing brown discharge between periods. Sometimes this goes on and off for weeks--three days; light discharge; then none for a few days; then some; then as normal, she starts her period. You've always been able to set the clock by her and that hasn't changed. It's just that now she has the added discharge. No pain, no tingling, no other symptoms that I know of. She HATES going to the doctor. Hasn't been to an gyn.
Avatar n tn I have always had regular Menstrual cycles right from my periods beginning when I was 11. I really need some advice and any input would be helpful. I had a period on the 7th November and had sex twice inbetween the 14th and the 21st of November. I then had a bleed on the 25th November that was not like a normal period, it was like I was losing old blood and was a lot lighter and only lasted a few days. I have not had a period since.
Avatar m tn I have never spotted in between periods before and I feel like its unlikely that I immediately got pregnant after being on bc regularly for two years.
Avatar n tn Typically start between the 1st of the month and the 5th of the month. Heavy-ish the first two days, and then they taper off, and after about the third or fourth day they're extremely light and last for another three days or so. My periods have typically been a bit longer than other women I've spoken to, but also lighter. I'm not on birth control, but I'm not trying to get pregnant either. It couldn't have been implantation bleeding. I'm 20 years old. I'll be honest; I'm a little freaked out.
Avatar n tn I have also had light bleeding frequently between periods and it is brown as well. I also notice that intercourse makes the spotting heavier. My breast have been extremely tender for close to 2 weeks now, especially my nipples. I don't have health insurance but I am worried. Can anyone give me an idea what could cause these symptoms?
Avatar f tn I would like to know the same thing.. I had light brown spotting on the day I SHOULD have started my period, and then no more, it wasnt there for more than a day. I normally have pretty bad periods - vomiting, severe cramps, etc. but none of that this time. && now im having cramps..its been about 3 weeks.
