The last time i had sex was about almost 3 weeks ago my period had just ended the few nights before. We used a condom. I should be getting my period next week maybe. i have been having dark brown discharge for the passed 5 days. 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?

Ummm the last time i had sex was almost 2 an a half weeks ago. And there sometimes was blood in it. I dont think there has been any pain or cramping. I dont know if it was stress. I was sort of under a lot of stress last week. Up really late with friends then getting up really early running all over the place. I havnt been as hungry so its almost like i have my period. But there are no cramps and its dark brown earlier in the week blood was more mixed in i  havnt seen blood the past 2 days it seems to have stopped for now. BUt we will see later on. And if i doesnt i will set up that opointment. THank you for your concern and comments.

Dark brown is "old blood" which means that you are bleeding from somewhere and the blood is sitting for probably days before it washes away. You need to be treated for this as soon as possible. No need in taking chances. It is probably something minor like a tear that can be taken care of quickly and easily. Good luck and take care.

Today i woke up in the morning and i saw the same thing. i dont know how that could possibly be. Its never happend to me before. And there was no cramping.. its just like if it were the very last days of your period...

you woke up and saw what? more details would allow us to help you out. did you just have your period? are you just starting it? 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.

my period is about a week away.. i saw brown discharge when i woke up and had it only for a day.. i've never gotten that before my period.. only the last few days of it. i also heard of brown discharge when your egg implants itself. its called implantation bleeding. and it happens in the earliest stages in pregnancy....
