Brown discharge and light periods ?

User Profile
Had Tubal about 6 years ago, and for the last 4 months I have had very irregular periods. I have been having a brown discharge before my periods with terrible headaches. Also my periods usually will last for 5-6 days, lately it has only lasted 2-3 days. Could there be something wrong? Could I be pregnant? I tried to get my doctor to give me one (pregnancy test) but was told that I did not need it since I had a tubal. How else can I find out?

You can always take an at home pregnancy test to see the results. If it shows negative, I would absolutely make sure that the GYN do blood tests, ultrasound, etc. to make sure your hormone levels are ok and if you have any uterine fibroids or cysts. Good Luck!

I get that alot, except my periods last 1-2 weeks. Sometimes when Im training alot or stressed, imbalanced eating or sleeping habits, I get what you have, reduced period and brown discharge, but more of a slimy kind. I believe its just old blood, and I havent found anything wrong Smile
