Light, pinkish or brown bleeding - without cramps. It is not spotting if there is bright red blood, with clots and/or cramping. Call your doctor to be sure everything is normal.
Because it gets heavier and then the cramps mean you are in puburty
Very common. Brown blood is old blood and should not be too concerning. If you begin spotting red blood or experience cramping you should contact your OB.
Sometimes this can happen and it means nothing. There are some women who have this *small* amount of spotting and *mild, infrequent* cramps throughout their entire pregnancy. However, *any* spotting should be reported to your obstetrician immediately. Only by examining you and your unborn baby can the doctor decide if this is a "normal" occurrence or something that needs to be addressed, especially if you are having a lot of cramps.
Possibly. Brown spotting can be implantation bleeding. Although spotting and slight cramps as well as tender breasts can be the onset of your period or PMS. If you miss your period then do a pregnancy test. The only thing you can do for now is wait.
Hi, Yes you can. Implantation cramping is very common and usually feels like period cramping. Implantation bleeding (IB) occurs 8-12 days after unprotected sex and not every woman experiences IB. Signs of IB are: * Light bleeding that lasts a few hours to 2-3 days. * Pinkish/brownish or reddish vaginal discharge. * Spotting of blood. * Spotting of blood that does not require a pad or tampon. * Spotting that is pinkish in colour. * Spotting that is brown in colour. * Light bleeding that is either pink or brown in colour and sometimes red.
it means you need to go to the doctor.
I am actually having the same thing right now and I am 6 weeks pregnant. Very light spotting (pink/brown) and I had mild cramping yesterday. When I was pregnant with my son I also had spotting at around 6 weeks. If it gets heavier and you have more cramping call your doctor. I am having an ultra sound in 2 days jut to make sure everything is alright. Best of luck.
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
The earliest sign of a miscarraige is painful cramping and bleeding. Some cramps are normal, as well as pink or brown bleeding. The cramping that is normal will feel like mild period cramps. Any type of painful cramping as opposed to minor discomfort I would recommend going to the hospital.
Spotting in the 1st month usually means nothing unless it is accompanied by cramping. I have had 4 successful pregnancies and have spotted light brown/pinkish with no complications with the babies. If the bleeding becomes heavy or cramping starts you should definitely see a doctor and express your concerns
cramps after a period are a regular thing. But having brown discharge?? You should probaly go see a doctor about it.
It all depends on your color of blood and level of pain in cramping. If your spotting is pink or brown-ish... they say it is not as big of a problem as dark red and/or heavy bleeding. I read that the embryo implants deeper during the 9th week and sometimes causes spotting and cramping. But either way, go with your intuition... ER or not!
That sounds like a typical period when on the pill.
if you are more than a week late and your having brown spotting like old dry blood. take a test and contact your Gyn. Most of the time this is called implantation bleeding
If it is a boy, yes. If it is a boy, yes.
Pregnancy symptoms and PMS symptoms overlap one another so much it's ridiculous. If you are worried that you may be pregnant, you need to take a home pregnancy test. If you have had sex without the use of protection, you could be pregnant. It does not matter what time of the month it is for you. Even if you did use protection, there is still a small chance you could get pregnant. If you are pregnant, the brown spotting is likely implantation bleeding. The stomach cramping due to your uterus preparing, and the backache is probably uterine related also. But, cramping, backaches, and spotting are also PMS symptoms. Take a pregnancy test.
brown spotting is okay. That's old blood. As long as its not bright red. Sometimes i get pains down low if I move suddenly or sneeze. Not quite like cramps. You should ask your doctor if your not sure of anything that's what they're there for!
yes its just spotting
Get checked now - that was my first indication....no cramps or anything, just brown spotting. You DEFINITELY should go to the Emergency Department of some hospitallike NOW !
brown spotting is just what is sounds like. old blood is brown. spotting describes the result of drops of blood on a surface. thus, old blood drops=brown spotting.
I STARTED HAVE BROWN SPOTTING AT 12 WEEKS WITH NO CRAMPS I WENT IN FOR AN ULTRA SOUND AND FOUND OUT THE BABY DIED A 7 WEEKS 6 DAYS . THEN 4 MONTHS LATER HAD A CHEMICAL PREGNANCY. NOW THREE MONTHS AFTER THAT I AM 4 WEEKS 4DAYS PREGNANT AND AM HAVING BROWN SPOTTING I WENT FOR A BLOOD TEST AND A NEXT ONE TWO DAYS LATER AND MY HCG LEVELS HAVE DROPPED MEANING I AM HAVING ANOTHER MISCARRIAGE. I WOULD CHECK WITH YOUR DR. CAUSE AFTER HEARING WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT SPOTTING BROWN THEY HAVE GONE ON WITH A NORMAL PREGNANCY. I GUESS AM NOT ONE OF THE LUCKY
You could be pregnant if you had unprotected sex.
I had` brown spotting last week at 5 weeks and went to the doc's and had an u/s and everything looked good brown is ok it is just old blood watch for heavy cramping and dark red blood that's when you should worry congrats Rae Rae
