I'm 1 6 years old and i first got my period when i was 13. After having it for 8 months its went away and i haven't had it since. A week ago I did notice that i had brown discharge or two days, then i had one little bit of blood (maybe two drops) and then brown discharge again for four days. After that there was just regular clear discharge for two days, but then today there was brown discharge and a drop of light pink blood again. Is this my period or is it something else? I have gone to a gynecologist and had blood work done, the results all came back normal. My mom and sister both got theirs when they were 14. I'm only 100 pounds, but again that is normal in my family. All other signs of puberty are there so is this something i should be concerned about or just give it more time since I'm still young?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. This gap of amenorrhea should have been tested for, any how what you had now is menstruation, get a diary of it and if it varies or stay irregular , get evaluated.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
