Possibly, because it's something new to ur body, so this is how your body reacts to this. Yes it can because it's a hormone. This puts your other hormone levels off balance for awhile. I went into early menopause (38 years old because of a trauma in my life) and I got those brown spots on my face but stayed out of the sun (wore sun lotion) and wore a Baseball cap or my hippy hat while fishing and they eventually went away. I still have one slight brown mark on the lower part of my left cheek.

What does little bleeding on the 24th day of the mentrual cycle followed by light spotting for 3 days and then regular period mean While spotting it was a combination of brown and then red blood?

This is normal. When you ovulate progesterone is released which tells the body to maintain the uterine lining in case a pregnancy will occur. The progesterone in the body lasts about two weeks. Towards the end of the two weeks the progesterone levels will decrease which in turn will cause spotting before your period, when the levels are at is lowest your menstrual period will start. When a woman gets pregnant her progesterone levels sky rocket to help maintain the pregnancy.

If you are spotting before your period could you be pregnant?

One common cause of spotting several days before a period is low progesterone. Progesterone helps to maintain the uterine lining for pregnancy, and when progesterone levels drop, the menstrual cycle occurs.

You can discover more about spotting in recommended link above. Spotting can happen while you are pregnant, so take a pregnancy test or visit your doctor to confirm.

You should be getting a 6 week check-up by your doctor at the start of your pregnancy. It can be common to bleed slightly while being pregnant, but it is always wise to get an appointment as soon as possible by your doctor. Any changes that are a worry to you (most are quite common during pregnancy)please see your doctor to be on the safe side. Brown spotting is usually not common with a pregnancy, but this doesn't necessary mean there is anything wrong (all women are different.) To keep your baby safe, again, please see your doctor. Brown spotting can mean a number of things...a low placenta can cause brown spotting, low progesterone can cause this too. I would contact your doctor and ask to see him ASAP, you don't want to risk anything.
