Brownish discharge before period starts

Common Questions and Answers about Brownish discharge before period starts


Avatar f tn 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 before the full period 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!
Avatar f tn It seems to start right after my period and lasts for about 2 weeks and then about a week before my period it goes away and then it starts all over again after my period. 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?
Avatar n tn My problem is, is that I think I am starting my period, but the discharge I am having is a brownish red, like dried blood. Is this a problem. I normally get cramps before my period 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??
Avatar n tn Ever since then, I have been getting this brown discharge before my period and this started about 3 months ago. 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.
Avatar n tn well i got brown discharge like the day before my period its like the 1st time it happpened then i got my period.most of the time it happens after. its weird.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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 brownish spotting one week before your period when on clomid or could i finally be pregnant?
Avatar n tn but i started noticing brownish discharge about 11 days before my period 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?
Avatar n tn It's comforting to see that I'm not dying! I have this brown discharge before AND after my period!! 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?
Avatar n tn Hi. For past few years I have light/brownish discharge which starts about a day before 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?
Avatar n tn I called my GYNO and spoke to the nurse. She said your period starts when you see the brownish 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.
Avatar n tn Lots of women do spot before their period starts up. Brown blood/discharge is old blood and not something to worry about. If you have it more often than a few days before period, talk to your doctor about it. It's nothing to worry about but might mean your hormones aren't in balance.
Avatar n tn the dark brown or black 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..
Avatar f tn Hello all. So, my period 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?
Avatar n tn You have more chance to get pregnant having unprotected sex two weeks before your period than the day before your period. 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.
Avatar n tn Yes, you should test or go to your doctor. I think alot of women have brown discharge before there period starts. I know I have in the past.
Avatar n tn This year I am having amazingly heavy periods, as well as a brownish discharge that starts right before my period 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.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure about the first three discharges, consult a MD for that. But the fourth brown discharge, could be blood. I have the same problem, usually just before 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.
Avatar f tn Is light brown spotting before your period starts normal? my period 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?
Avatar n tn did you wake up and see brown discharge and its not even close to your period? any brown discharge is normal. its normal before your period and after your period. sometimes 2-3 days of it.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn [pre-*** could have done it] i have an irregular period, so i dont know if these are period cramps or not. i usually cramp for a few days before 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?
Avatar n tn but anyways. a few days ago, the discharge was almost a brownish 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...
Avatar n tn I got my period nov 16.. it ended nov 21... its been a week and im now spotting a brownish 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...
Avatar n tn I have had the Mirena for about 4 years now. I have had a lot of problems with discharge and a few days before my period I spot a brownish 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.
Avatar f tn 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 period starts. Which of these is the start of my period? Is it the the brown discharge or the red bleeding? I need to know in order to estimate my ovulation time.
Avatar f tn ) You will often find that right before your period 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!
306389 tn?1213491296 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 brownish discharge 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.
