Dark brown discharge?
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?

I just got off the implanon birth control in November. I had unprotected sex one month ago, and now I'm having the brown period like symptoms about a week before my actual period. Me and my husband were trying to have a baby a month ago when we tried. What does the discharge mean?

Hey guys. So I've recently had sex with my boyfriend about 2-3 days ago. I'm due for my period any time now, but all I've noticed is this brown discharge that comes and goes with a little blood. Ive put in tampons and had almost nothing come out with them. Please help me. I am young and pray to god, knock on wood that I'm pregnant. I can't be. I'm so scared, im worrying I may be stressing myself out, it's just so scary. What could this be? I normally have very very heavy periods as well. What's going on?

Am Really Worried.
I Was On Birth Control With The Patch. I Had The First Week Patch On Till The Next Week. And Changed It To The Second Patch For The Second Week. And I Had Forgot To Change The Second Patch To The Third Patch For The Third Week. So I Decided To Leave It On Until I Had To Take It Out On The Fourth Week. When The Fourth Week Came I Took The Patch Off And Waited For My Period. Until Now I Havent Gotten My Usual Regular Period. Its Been 2 Days Already That I Been Having Brown Spottings. But The Brown Spottings Only Come Like Every 6 Hours Or So. And Am Worried.

I've experienced the same thing. I have recently been sexually active, unprotected, I just started taking birth control again. About 2 weeks before my scheduled period is supposed to start, I had brown,bloody discharge. Now, I have a very light pink colour and the flow is extremely light. I have ready many different possibilities but I am extremely concerned that I may be pregnant. I have also been experiencing lower abdominal pain, and certain foods are hurting my stomach.

Two weeks ago I began yaz birth control pill. Five days ago I had sex. I am very very small and sex usually hurts and causes minor bleeding. However, starting four days ago I began getting bad cramps and dark brown, bloody discharge. It has continued for four days. Is this breakthrough bleeding from the pill? Or a result of sex?

I'm 14 and I should be having my 3rd period...but there's this dark brown discharge. It's Saturday and I've had it since Tuesday night.
I've not been sexually active, of course.
What should I do?
Do I have to worry?
Is that bad?
Is it normal?
Should it just stop?

I want to share my story with everyone, maybe it will be of some help to someone out there worrying and googling.. I had all the symptoms of "implantation bleeding" / early pregnancy, as most people posted about. I was a week or so away from starting my period, had brown discharge for one day, then pink for the next day, to day and a half. This has never happened to me before. I looked it up and everyone and their mother said 'you're pregnant, congrats, baby dust, etc.' I am a healthy 22 year old female, I have had unprotected sex with my partner at least 3 times this months, and guess what? 100% Not Pregnant. I was worrying so much because every single answer I found online basically pointed to implantation bleeding, but that was definitely not the case! So, don't stress if you have spotting, regardless of when it occurs in your monthly cycle, sometimes it's just normal.

Ok so I am 12 years old an something really weird happened to days ago. I went out to eat and went to the bathroom to poop and pee but when I wiped my front it was brown so I wiped like 20 times because that was really gross so as soon as I got home I took the longest shower of my life and when I came out I peed and there was still some heavyish brown stuff in the front but I didn't see it if I looked at my Virginia. The next day I woke up and peed and that brown stuff was there. I was worried because I couldn't see it on my Virginia so I thought it was maybe in it. I took a piece of toilet paper and rolled it up like I was about to put it in my nose but put it on my Virginia hole where i pee instead and when I took it out it was red bloody. But that was the only time I saw blood. This brown stuff doesn't  come out its just on my toilet paper and I told my mom about it and joking around she said I had a bladder disease but now I'm scared. I haven't had my period EVER and I'm wondering if this is it or if I really do had an infection... HELP!!!

I had my period just over 2 weeks ago and for the past few days have been experiencing a thick brown discharge when I wipe. I have had sex recently just after my period ended it is with the same partner and neither of us have had other sexual partners before. This is the second month this has happened and I worry it will come out during sex. I have been on a very light pill (Yaz) for about 3 years now and we do use condoms. I took a pregnancy test 3 days ago and it came out negative.

I had my period just over 2 weeks ago. I had sex with my boyfriend(who has had no previous partners) just after my period ended and we did use a condom we have regular intercourse and have been for about a year now. For the past few days iv been getting a thick brown discharge(no blood) every time I wipe. I have been on the pill for just over 3 years now but a very light one. I took a pregnancy test 3 days ago and it came out negative but this discharge is a concern for me. I have no abominal cramping or any other pain, weight gain or loss. Everything is normal. I am getting very worried as this is the second month this has happened and I worry he sees it aswell. It is not heavy enough to use a tampon or panty liner and doesn't have any sort of odour. What could be the cause of this as I am starting to worry but do not have time to go to my doctor as I'm away at Varsity. Please help!

A little off topic an I wish I could help u. I don't have insurance and am basically looking for help myself. I never had a reg period and am not on birth conrtol, I finally started to and one month I was bleeding dark brown discharge before my period, had my period. Then the next month the same but I had awful back pain, I couldn't walk. Went to the e.r and they after thinking I had a miscarriage said it was abnormal uteran bleeding.. Ever since I've had that same dark brown discharge about a week before my period ( which has been 2 months) and this time it's a week before, the brown happend, and now it's bright red heavily and clotting blood, consistent. No cramps, zits, or sore breasts like a normal period. Is this my period or what's going on????

My period started on 8/1/13. It lasted for about 4-6 days. I had sex the next day. With a condom. And I started spotting. Thats normal for me if I have sex right after my period ends. So I didn't think nothing of it. But today is 8/31/13 and im still spotting. More when I use the bathroom. Through out the day its fine. And the discharge is a dark brown almost black color. It has an embarrassing smell. Kind of reminds me of the smell that I have at the end of my periods (not pleasant). My stomach has had that kind of bloating feeling. Ive noticed that ive been using the bathroom more frequently as well. Im really worried. Do u know what this is that im experiencing?

You could possibly be starting!!! But when young girls, like you, first start, then they could have their next period in another 2 months or so! I had my period when i was 10! Then I didn't have it for another 3 months. Now it is starting more regularly. ( I am 31). You might want to ask your mother ( or father) for some pantyliners or pads to start you of incase it comes again. You always want to be prepared!!!
