Last month during my normal period time, I had dark brown discharge for about 5 days. The flow was very light, only needing a pantyliner. Yesterday, when my normal period was to begin, the same dark brown discharge started up. I am a virgin and am not on birthcontrol. The only change in my behavior has been my boyfriend fingering me on several occasions. What could be the cause of the brown discharge? Should I see a doctor?

what if you arent suposed to get your period for at least two more weeks and there is brown discharge and you bleed randomly. For instance yesterday i didnt bleed at all and then all this morning i didnt...but then i randomly started when i went to the bathroom??? im not going to lie..im kinda scared.

That has happened to me when I forgot to take a day or two of birth control. Could that be the case?

she's not on birth control.

i really think you have nothing to worry about. it doesnt happen on a frequent basis and it is not heavy, so from what you have said, you sound absolutely fine.

i had sex with my boyfriend and one of the condoms broke but he didnt not bust and put a new one on when he saw it. I am on birthcontrol but now i am very stressed out because i was supposed to start my period this week and i got really dark brown discharge instead of my period i usually get it before my period but ill get my period a day or two after. everyone says its nearly impossible im pregnant and it's just the stress.. but i still need advice i havent built up the courage to buy a pregnancy test yet either.

I have the exact same problem an I'm also really scared people have told me that there was nothing to worry about and it could be just left over blood which I think is strange since its a very dark brown but if you think it may be more of an issue tell you parents and ask to see a doctor Smile

I have been having the same thing, is it something to worry about, like brown blobs (a small amount) durring the time time when I am getting my period. I have never had sex, so I know I cant be pregnant. Is there something wrong or does this just happen?

Replys to Brown discharge
tennistar84- I do not think you have any reason to be worried. As what i have learned it could be leftover blood that did not come out from you last period. Now if it were accompanied by pain or other symptoms then that would be a different story. But as of now i think you should be fine.


sandistrong- Im sorry but your friend have lied. there is a possible case that you could be pregnant. Even though he did not go there is a thing called pre-ejaculation. But since you are on birth control i wouldnt be too worried. And since u are having a little discharge that mean u are starting what is a period like symptom then i think you are fine.


scared11- dont be too scared. Since you are just starting your period it may be left over period blood from last time. If you are still worried ask your mother or father to make u an appointment with a doctor. and talk to them about it.

concering- im pretty sure this just happens because i have had it happen to me a lot in the past. Now if there was pain then i would be concerned and not just normal menstrual pain.

Brown dischrage instead of period, help!
Hey, to put this bluntly, I am not a virgin and I make him use a condom every time but he never finishes. I have irregular periods anyway but never like this. It's just brown discharge and stomach cramps. I kinda want to know what the hell is going on, is it stress or what? Help please!

hi, birth control might be easier than worrying every time a condom comes off or tears etc
morning after pills usually good for three days can be a fix to this
we don't know if u r possible pg
pg test u buy mostly only work after about 25 days
good luck

Brown discharge around the time of your period is very normal. As others have stated, this is just old blood making a fashionably late exit. But if accompanied with cramps, I would definitely see your doctor. Every so often when I am stressed or have made an adjustment to my daily routine, such as more exercise than normal or changing my diet, I tend to have brown discharge before and sometimes in place of my normal period but by my next cycle, things are back to normal. Please note though that you can get pregnant at any time, even while you are on your period. Birth control and a condom is the only way to be sure you are not pregnant. While I've had my fair share of scares (even while taking the pill and never missing a day), I have never once been pregnant. All it took was some patience and relaxation. So girls, keep your head up and try to relax! If you are extremely concerned, take a pregnancy test first. But most of the time, there is nothing to worry about. Our bodies are just sensitive.
