this may be implantation bleeding. i would take a pregnancy test if your period does not get heavier. or it may be a light period. who knows? i bet you're scared now.

See the related link on what causes brown discharge after period.

Dark brown or "old blood" bleeding two weeks after your period is likely a sign that ovulation is occurring.


It is not supposed to be brown unless it is from dried blood during your period. If you are not on your period, you have an infection.

Period blood can be dark brown, light brown, dark red or red. Sometimes your period is brown if it is a light period. Sometimes your period can be brown near the end of your period.

Hello. Yes you could be pregnant. If the bleeding is brown then this is old blood and a sign of pregnancy or a approaching period. I get this myself when my period is late. If the bleeding was a normal period then its unlikely your pregnant but definitely do a test to be certain. Take care.

Yes, it very well can be implantation bleeding, it is usually lighter than a period.

Hi, *Period: - A period is a normal period, normal flow for you around the time you expect your period to arrive. You can not be pregnant and have a normal period. A period signifies that no egg has been fertilised and the egg breaks down and causes the period. * Implantation Bleeding: - Implantation Bleeding occurs 8-12 days after unprotected sex when the egg has been fertilised by the sperm. Not every woman experiences implantation bleeding and it is not as common as many people believe. When implantation bleeding occurs its usually spotting of blood or light bleeding which lasts a few hours to 2 (sometimes 3) days. Implantation bleeding can be: * Light bleeding in underwear. * Bleeding not requiring a pad or tampon. * Bleeding or streaks of blood on tissue paper when you wipe. * Pinkish bleeding which is light. * Brown bleeding which is light. * Discoloured pinkish, redish or brownish vaginal discharge.

You would know that your period has stopped because you are no longer bleeding. As your period comes to an end the bleeding lightens, you may see brown or pink discharge rather than full bleeding, and then it will return to normal discharge. Once you are no longer bleeding you are no longer menstruating.

Your period should start off brown, but then in about a month it wil turn red!!!!

Menstruation is when the uterus lining sheds, this shows as bleeding from your vagina - if you're bleeding then you are likely menstruating. Brown flow simply means that your period is light, it's taking time to leave the body so going brown and mixing with discharge.

im 16 and i was supposed to start my period a couple weeks ago and i never did now i am spotting brown blood i was wondering if anyone could tell me what that means

Totally normal. If you notice when you first start your period it is bright red, and then towards the end of your period, it's brown. Brown blood=old blood, it just means its older! you will be alright!

implantation bleeding can either be a brown or really light pink color if it goes red your probably experiencing a regular period especially if the bleeding starts out light and gets a little more heavy

Old blood that sticks to the wall of the uterus.

you have UTI, sorry bud...stuff least its not aids...

When you have brown discharge near the end of your period that just means that your period is almost done it does not mean that there's something wrong with you it's normal.

This is normal and it's classed as 'old blood.' Don't worry about it. You can also get this after you finish your period (right at the end.)

You know when your period stopped because you are no longer bleeding - no blood, brown discharge, or pink discharge leaving your vagina.

Hello, Not necessarily, no. This brown bleeding is old blood and it can be caused by pregnancy, hormonal imbalance, UTI, birth control or irregular period. You can have a blood test performed to determine pregnancy called the Quantitative beta hcg, 7 days after intercourse.

Chances are you're starting your period. It's most likely nothing to be conserned about=)
