Brown spotting and light bleeding not sure if it is my period or am I pregnant
I was scheduled to get my period on July 22 or 23.  on those 23rd I assumed I was getting my period because I start out with a brown discharge.  But the that discharge is still here.  When I wipe after going to bathroom sometimes the discharge is light on toilet tissue and sometimes I will get very light blood.  I still have this discharge and I know if it was to be my period it should be over by now.  Could I be pregnant.  I took a pregnancy test last Monday and it came back negative but I don't have no signs of being pregnant either.  Should I want til it stops and hope for a period next month, take a pregnancy test, or go to the doctor.  This has never happened before.  I don't know what this is.  Hope someone can tell me.

Today's my 11th day of bleeding. I've NEVER done this! I'm 39 & have 4 children. I started my period 2 days early. The 1st day was more like the 3rd or 4th. Usually it's very heavy & my legs & butt ache. I didn't have any cramping or aches this time though. The 2nd & 3rd day got heavier, but still lighter than usual. Then it tappered off like I was stopping - but I didn't stop completely. I usually go about 4 days of bleeding & then come off by the 5th or 6th day w/ just brownish discharge. But today's the 11th day now. It's extremely light, & it's def red - not brownish. I mostly just see it when I go to the bathroom. I've seen pieces of uterus lining(?), too, mostly small - the biggest maybe the same diameter as a dime. No cramping, no aches, no pains. What is this!?! I've never had anything like this before. I've not taken a pregnancy test because from what I've read other women who had similiar bleeding & were pregnant all had negative tests(?). I guess next week I'll find a GYN and see whats up. (Not on bc, I usually abstain during ovulation - not even sure when I'll ovulate this mo. now! Ugh!).

I was scheduled to get my period on the 21st of nov, but I experienced light pinkish discarge  on nov 14th exactly a wk before my period. I would wake up in the morning feeling nauseous, and the urge to throw up. Every time I have the urge to throw up nothing ever comes up? O_o Now its Nov 22nd , and I've been spotting brownish discharge since yesterday. I've experienced a few cramps, back pains, and a sore left breast.I also took a @home pregnancy test ( Negative) My bf and I  have been trying for 3yrs to conceive.  Im praying this is it? Can someone give me a few tips or any info on what's going on? #hopigitstwinboys

When I was in my teens I had very irregular periods at first, sometimes months in between getting them, some times only a week would go by and then I would start up again. Sometimes it takes your body a few years to adjust. People advised me to get on the pill to regulate it but If you are not sexually active I don't think that you have anything to worry about.  If you have brown spotting it is old blood that needs to get out of your body. A good way to clean your body out is to drink more water then usual. Sometimes its just a simple solution and nothing that you should worry about.

Hello my name is Jessica I am 22 I recently stopped taking birth control pills after 2 years of taking them, now that I have stopped them I missed my period for the last two montgs, I thought I was getting my period because I had really bad cramps when I went to the restroom and had very bright red bleeding followed by a blood clot I used a tampon and a pad due to the heavy bleeding I went through both of them within 30 minutes I had woken up next morning with no more bleeding two days later I started experiencing a very light dark brown (sometimes more of a blackish brown then reddish brown) discharge. Its been going on for almost a week already its light enough for panty liners but not for tampons or pads. I'm getting very nervous I called to make a appointment but now Thanksgiving is in two days I can't be seen till next week! Is there any way anyone could explain to me why this is happing I don't want to be stressed for another week! Ooh by the way I'm in a monogamous relationship already for 7 years so a std isn't possible!! Please help me enjoy Thanksgiving! Thank you

I'm 15 and have never gotten my peroid before. I lately noticed blood but not enough to be my peroid. The doctor said I would be abnormal because of my metabolism, athletsim and size... I have never had sex and have never really noticed or done anything before. I used a pad the past 3 days but sometimes it's heavy and sometimes light... What should I do?!? Please help!

The pill can mess with your bodies natural process. When you start taking it and stop suddenly it will change your period. Sometimes it can take months for it to get back to normal, other times it takes less time. You never want to start taking it and then just stop like that. The point is to take it regularly at the same time every day, which is difficult for many women. I stopped taking the pill because it messed with my body so much. I ended up having my period for 3 weeks straight. Then they gave me the Depo shot which was worse. Now I have an IUD and I am not sure about that either. The best that was recommended to me is the ring, but my insurance didn't cover it. Application is kinda gross but I have a few friends that use it and they love it.

I started spotting yesterday July 28.  Not a period.  The spotting only comes when I wipe myself.  I just got of my period July 3-7.  Which is not a usual cycle for me.  Now today July 29 I have a brown discharge.  I am not expected to come on my cycle until August 2 or 3.  I come on like clock work.  Could I be starting my period or could I be pregnant?  My boyfriend and I have unprotected sex all the time.  I am 33 years old.  I have not gained weight.  My breast a tender (but this happen on a regular when I start me cycle), I am sleepy all the time, moody, smells are really strong for some reason, and I have been sick (nausea).  I have never experience this.  Can anyone help me?

Hi, I'm 22 years old and only recently went on the contraceptive pill. I had unprotected sex 12 days ago on the same day in which i forgot to take my pill. I took it the next day a couple of hours before I was due to take the next one. Since then I have had stomach cramps, my stomach doesn't fold in when i bend down and is hard. My 7 day break from the pill started 5 days ago and today is the first day I have had a bleed. It is only small but I noticed it is an unusual brown colour and more like a discharge. I have also been feeling very faint. I know there is a possibility, but is it too soon to be showing signs of a possible pregnancy? I'm nervous.
