Brown spotting is known as old blood. When this occurs there is a possibility you could be pregnant. See your doctor for a blood test and also see your doctor to rule out a hormonal imbalance.

Ive had this problem on my last period.Only had brown spotting when i wiped and instead of only lasting for 5 normal days(for me)it lasted 11days.The 2periods before that my period lasted 9 days but it bleed red blood.And each period is getting lighter.They were also late.Pregnancy is not likely since i took a blood test and hpt.I took the blood test a little over a month ago. Took the hpt a few days ago. Yess i realize after a neg. blood test you'd think i wouldnt take a hpt but we havent been trying to get pregnant but havent really been preventing it. If it happens then great if it don't then great. I'm going to the doctor on the 29th but i juss wanted some input on what it could be.hormaonal imbalance is possible but im wondering why it juss started abruptly 3months ago.i did have a miscarriage a little over 3 months ago.But i figured it wouldnt affect my periods for 3months...

Any input??

Brown vaginal discharge can be related to your period, it's known as spotting and caused when blood mixes with discharge and takes time to leave the body (thus going brown). It can occur just before or after your period, light periods may be only light spotting like this, or brown discharge can be an indication of bleeding for other reasons like hormonal imbalance or ovulation spotting.

You sometimes start spotting right before the period actually starts, so I don't think it is really your period, only an indication that your period is about to start. Also, if your periods are very irregular, you may only have spotting some months.
