Help me
’ve never posted on one of these before but hopefully it could be some help!l
I am 14/15 days into my cycle and for the past 3 days I have been experiencing small amounts of brown discharge. The first day was darker coloured and now it is really light brown. Everything I have been researching online comes up with something to do with pregnancy or mid cycle ovulation or std’s? I have been having lower stomach cramps that seem to last literally 5 minutes and then comes back more towards the left side and later on on my right side? The first day I also experienced pains at the lower left side of my back. I have been pregnant before and couldn’t stand the smell of smoke, but this was only towards 9/10 weeks... I don’t know if I’m making it up in my head because I’m worried but the smell is really starting to make my stomach churn... from my previous pregnancy I didn’t experience any of this and didn’t realise I was pregnant until 6 weeks. I don’t know if I’m being silly but can please someone suggest what all this is?
Thank you

Hello.  Brown spotting is old blood and can often be really meaningless and just happen.  Hormone imbalance can cause it as you've read.  Early pregnancy can have spotting issues.  But this would be more likely that you didn't really have a period during your last cycle and were actually pregnant.  Or it's implantation bleeding (which is actually pretty rare).  But at 14 to 15 days in your cycle, you are just now ovulating.  

Which is a long way of saying that it is hard to say what is going on.  When your period is due, take a test.  I'm sort of doubting you are pregnant but if you've had unprotected sex last cycle or this, it could be.  When's your period due?

Last cycle I was a week late on my period, I did 2 tests and both negative results and then came on my period very heavy but only for a day and then the next 4/5 days very light bleeding. Usual my periods are on time which was a bit strange and I’m not normally that heavy! The brown discharge has gone now and has turned back into normal colour. I have been having unprotected protected sex which is why I think I am worrying! I am due 14th of this month! I have been experiencing more pains today in my left hip area and also lower left back? But it also feels like it’s just aching? I’m so confused but now it’s gone back to norma discharge I’m starting to think it’s ovulation bleeding?
Thank you so much!
