Do you know if you ovulated around the time you had sex? You coukd be experencing implantation spotting/bleeding or it could be break through bleeding. Brown spotting is sometimes old blood I'm not sure. If you miss your period I suggest a hpt. I'm not sure what the brown dicharge is bc I'm not a dr. but if you are very worried about have a visit with ur dr. and get it checked out.

My period comes like clockwork the second week of the month between Wednesday and Friday. Instead of my period I have had very slight brown discharge. I am on birth control and my boyfriend and I use condoms 100% of the time. I have read a lot about implantation bleeding...but I am not trying to get pregnant and have taken every precaution to avoid that. Could I be pregnant or is there something else this could be?

I'm having similar problems, but with a little more to it... I stopped using birth control In june so we could attempt having another baby. A week later I had an irregular period which I expected. Two weeks later (in july) was regular period time. Again two weeks later, I had a super light spotting. Now its been 2 and a half weeks (august) and the only thing I've got is 4 days of white discharge. One day of brown mucusy discharge. What does that mean?

4 days after my period every month I get this light brown watery discharge and it lasts till my next period, sometimes its reddish brown, its not smelly, no irritations, no itching and no pain. Its started after an irregular period in october of 2011, had HVS done severally and nothing was found. I recently treated PID in september of 2012 after a  scan and was told I have fibroid, saw my period on the 6th-12th of november and after 4 days the brown discharanges started, my last period was 11th-15th of december and same thing is happening. Should I be worried?
