What does it mean if you only have brown spotting when your period is due?

Hi,

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??
