Common Questions and Answers about Brown spotting between periods medical questions


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 am supposed to start my period in a about four or five days, however I am not on my placebo pills yet, so I am concerned. Am I miscarrying? I have had spotting between periods before, however they have never lasted this long, or have I had cramps with them, so I am really concerned...
5803688 tn?1375015347 I cannot give you exact answers to your questions without knowing more of your medical history and doing some lab tests, but in general infertility can be due to a female factor, male factor, or both. Are you aware of when you are ovulating, and do you make sure to have intercourse during those days of the month? A great tool is this free MedHelp Ovulation Tracker (
Avatar n tn SO far no weight gain, but I have had an on again off again period, including dark brown spotting, and bright red bleeding. But each last no more than 24hrs at a time, quits for 24 than comes on again. Lower back pain and fullness in uterus area. has anyone experienced any of these problems since going off and coming back on Depo?
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 My spotting varies in color, like yours. Light Brown, Dark Brown/Red, Light Pink, you name it. It just depends on the month!
Avatar f tn Oh, and I have low b12--- weekly injections now. And low vitamin d-- 2000 mg daily. So, here are my questions for those of you who have been dealing with this longer than I: -- Will I ever get back to my old self? Feel"normal"? -- Will this roller coaster ride ever stop? I have noticed I will have 3 days of energy (I won't feel 100% but I can go and do) and then it's like a crash. Just unable to go. Need lots of sleep. --- I have read lots of info on "symptoms".
Avatar n tn However unlike everyone else that has gone off of it and not had a period for a while I have dark brown to light red spotting. Just enough to fill a small pad, not heavy just really when I wipe. Has anyone else had this?
Avatar f tn If you have bleeding between periods, try to take your pills at the same time every day. If you have spotting (light bleeding between periods) for several cycles, call the doctor's office for advice. I hope that this helps you, and the sites I provided help to explain the functions of your BCP and what you should do if you miss one in future. I think for you since you are on LoEs, you need to ensure you are taking them at exactly the same time each and every day.
Avatar n tn Will birth control pills help the endometriosis?? I have spotting between periods, usually during ovulation. If I exercise heavily, I spot a few small clots. When I do spot, I usually see the brown blood then the red. I don't have to wear pads during this time...yet. My menstrual cycle is normal and I know when it will start. Don't cysts make the cycle sporadic? Do cysts cause spotting, too? My current gen. doc. doesn't seem to think so. Could it be hormonal fluctuations?

With a doctor's instructions, emergency contraception can also be made up from standard oral contraceptive pills to create the second type of preparation.

1422615 tn?1334067834 Signs include brown vaginal spotting or light bleeding, continuous or not, and have abdominal and/or shoulder pain that is often severe. This type of pregnancy will have to be surgically aborted as it poses potential harm to the mother. The fetus would not be able to survive in this type of pregnancy anyway. 3. Molar pregnancy. Signs include a continuous brownish discharge. This one is a very rare, yet very serious, problem. See the related links below for more information on this condition.
Avatar n tn was going to mention - for the first time in my life I now have spotting b/w periods. Basically I haven't had a normal period since my last partner in July (at first I entertained the possibility that I had a miscarriage but didn't really give it much thought). Basically it's brown and looks like the end of a period. Full disclosure: I had been off the pill for about 8 months or so and started the pill again about 3.5 weeks ago.
485043 tn?1224174187 My daughter was having weird periods with nasty brown stuff in between cycles. She just went to the doctor and they put her on progesterone, not estrogen. They're hoping it clears out the uterus a bit because hers is too bulky. If not, then they're talking about a D&C. She also has a cyst on one ovary and that can cause bloating and pain here and there. But they did do the ultrasound (transvaginal).
Avatar n tn My periods are usually like clock work;every month between the 10th-12. Last period was 06/11/08 it was a normal period. July--no period, no sweat cause every woman will skip at least one period in her life for one reason or another other than pregnancy. Took a pregnancy test just to be on the safe side and it was negative. August 2nd and 3rd--went to the bathroom and found light brown sticky mucus in my panties.Read flag!!!!!! Took another pregnancy test......once again negative.
Avatar n tn I am 30 years old with my first pregnancy, currently at 7.5 weeks. Last week, I had brown spotting and cramping for 7 consecutive days (while I was just 6 weeks along). I was convinced that I was experiencing a miscarriage b/c I no longer "felt pregnant" like I did before (ie: I had more energy, my breasts were not as sensitive, etc.). With the exception of a few brief times of feeling dizzy and nauseated, I did not experience any morning sickness.
Avatar m tn I begin lightly bleeding brown blood and tissue. The brown bleeding continues, without pain, for 8 days and then turns red on May 24th. May 22: I test positive for pregnancy and continue to bleed brown with tissue. May 23: I see a doctor because of the bleeding, and she tells me it’s a miscarriage. I take a blood test and my hcg level is 967. May 24: I get a vaginal ultrasound.
Avatar n tn I know with the Mirena it is possible to miss periods and to have spotting the odd time, but am uncertain to the chances of getting pregnant. I ask the same questions and see on this site called Inspire, it is quite possible from the feedback I have gotten, even with your type of IUD. Good luck and God bless!
Avatar n tn It could be you are pregnant and that you were having implantation bleeding. I had brown/red spotting one day, a little heavier blood the next day, and then spotting the next. That was about 3 weeks ago. I still haven't gotten a right period and I'm very suspicios that I'm pregnant, even though home pregnancy tests say negative. It can take ahwile to show up on a test, so don't loose hope. Are you feeling any symptoms of pregancy?
Avatar n tn Exactly 11 days ago I was ovulating so my BF and I had intercouse (Yes we are trying to get pregnant) an im 29 days between AF cycles. So when I woke up with a brown discharge and no cramping once I was up cleaning house and stuff I had gotten crampy and by noon it was like pinkish/red. Could I be pregnant or is this AF visting? Im so confused over this being that its my first if I am pregnant. Can someone give me some info.
Avatar f tn I had the Mirena inserted 6 months ago and also have experienced heavy, prolonged periods, and spotting. As many of the other posts here have reported ....its a big pain in the neck and def puts a damper on sex life. I really thought this was supposed to be maintainance free and help reduce your periods and it really is the opposite!
Avatar n tn When I went back for my 4 wk checkup the doctor asked me a lot of questions, one was if I had a period and I told him yes. He then informed me that some women do have periods after a hysterectomy. AFTER HAVING A 2ND PERIOD SINCE SURGERY I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS NORMAL OR NOT????? Everyone says it isn't.
Avatar n tn My periods are very painful, long bleeding times, with only 1-3 weeks break between periods. I am sure the surgery created scarring or I have grown endomitriosis. My point. If you all don't make major changes here or really push your doctors to REACT to your symptoms then you may end up like me. Averyms you have got to try to get healthy with your weight. The primary reason we have all these issues is due to estrogen, we have too damn much of it.
Avatar n tn I to have the same bleeding after sex and somtimes during a bowel movement.
Avatar n tn It started after I had a BM with a small amount of pink spotting and then turned into the occaisional brown spotting. I called the doctor Monday, Tuesday and yesterday. On Tuesday the nurse talked me into waiting and then yesterday I insisted on a sonagram. I was very postive that everything was going to be OK because I had all the sighns of being 9 weeks pregnant. I guess it was just the hormones.
Avatar n tn My doctor said that was norm and everything is fine but my next wwas just Nov 3rd and it was brown spotting and intense cramping. Now im at abt the time to ovulate and i am spotting blood instead. Is anyone familiar with this? Is there hope for me to get pg again?
