Brown discharge before period
HI, I have been reading about the diferent types of discharge before and after a period, but Im still not clear about it.  I just want to know if its normal to have brown discharge days before my period starts, its not all day but it can last for 2 days, then nothing and then my period. Thanks.

Yes it's normal. Brown blood in your discharge is old blood...which is pretty common to have just before starting your period...getting rid of what was left in there before your new period begins.

I am a week away from my period, just started taking birth control. My partner and I have sex on a regular basis but we take measures to assure that pregnancy won't happen easily. I have brown discharge today. It felt like the feeling I get right before my period and it happened right after I came back from my walk. I just had my regular pap smear in August and I was wondering if I should be worried. Please comment! It would be greatly appreciated!

Since you just recently started birth control, having brown discharge is completely normal. It;s just a side effect of the birth control. It happens because your body is trying to get used to being on birth control. It's also normal right before a period - so could be possible your period is about to arrive early. Which could also be down to the birth control.
