It's normal.

Your period could be brown for many reasons, and you may just have a light period.

If you're worried you can go to Planned Parenthood. They'll be able to help you and make sure nothing is wrong.

Doctor
What are you worrying about: possible pregnancy or that brown discharge?
You can stop worrying about any possible pregnancy because you are probably not pregnant.
That brown discharge could be in fact your period but you will need to check that at your gynecologist. The condition is probably not urgent so you can wait until you get enough many for gynecological examination.

brown vaginal discharge for two months
hi i have had one sex partner this year and i have gotten pregnancy test every month since april and they came bak negative. I have not had a period since april. Last month I had brown vaginal discharge that had no smell and it only shows when i wipe myself. Now I am having the same problem this month and i am not suppose to come on my period, 3 months ago i thought i had a yeast infection but never was able to get checked out by my doctor. I have been very stressed. I know my partner had a lot of sex partners before me but he says that i am his only partner but i do not believe him. we do not use condoms and before me i do not think he used them on anyone else either can you tell me what might be my problem

Very Worried
I'm a worried because about 2 weeks ago, I started to have sex and then he put the condom on. So it was only unprotected for about 30 seconds. He didn't come until awhile after, after putting the condom on. I have been having brown discharge for about three days and it has me really worried. My period is due in about 5-7 days. I don't know what to do.

if you have just gained weight in your mid section, it could be polycystic ovaries. I had the same problem so my doctor did a vaginal sonogram.

Okay so, I have pretty much the same question. I've heard of people that have been able to conceive a day before their period. My period is usually pretty normal. Okay not usually. I can determine the day of the month because my period comes like clockwork. Well, I had sex last Friday and we were naive and just used the "pull-out" method. But during foreplay, he said he did cum. So I didnt realize the risk of this until two days later (Sunday). I'm trying to stay calm. I managed to stay calm yesterday. However, this morning, I woke up to find a really dark brown discharge and it had some red/pink spots in it. I'm due for my period tomorrow. However, this made me nervous. I know they say it could be old blood. However, it's making me nervous because I do normally get old blood but it's like at the end of my period. I don't usually get it at the beginning of my period like this. I already told my boyfriend the possibility of this on Sunday, and we were both calm and talked it out. So I have no reason to be stressed right now. I'm also having pain on my side as well which they say that could be the implantation (if i am pregnant).

I have been having brown discharge off and on for over 2 weeks now, and I'm supposed to start my period this week according to my birthcontrol pills. I took a pregnancy test today and it was negative. I have a gyno appt tomorrow. I'm really freaked out because when i google brown discharge it said it can be implantation (which is ok with me) but it also list cervical cancer, and with a pregnancy test negative I'm really worried. I live with my boyfriend and since im on the piil we always have unprotected sex. I am anxious to here what the doctor says, but if u have any input or experience it would be greatly appreciated Smile

First period? Virgin. Terrified, embarrased, and getting worse.
I'm really scared. And very embarrased.
I'm 15 and I've never had my period. I'm a virgin, and all day the yesterday I felt like I was dying, and then today I've found this brownish stuff. At first it was creamy, and now it's dark brown. What should I do? Is this a period? Am I okay?

More than likely you're just fine girl, calm down! It's perfectly normal for your first period (first few really...) to be kind of funky and not quite the way everyone describes it. I would see an ob/gyn though because 15 is a little bit late to get your first period. More than likely it's just a slight hormonal imbalance which can be fixed easily with birth control pills (that is, if it doesn't correct itself on its own)! Wink Enjoy your new womanhood, lol it's nothing to be embarrassed about Razz

Brown discharge is quite normal before & after your actual period! Everyone stop worrying that you're pregnant! If everyone has said they have had brown discharge but hasn't come back & said they're pregnant then everyone turned out fine!
