2 periods in one month then brown spotting a week after 2nd period? My periods are always 28 days apart but I bled 11 days too early and both bleeding seemed to be how my normal periods usually are, heavy and last 7 days. I was on my period from August 14 to August 21 then got on my period again September 7 to September 14 (17 days after normal period, 11 days too early). After I ended my period ended on September 14, on September 23 (9 days after period ended) I had a wiped after I used the restroom to see a very clear sticky discharge with a little streak of bright blood in it. Then on September 24 I had no blood then on September 25 and 26 I had a brown discharge only when I wiped then September 27 I have a lighter brown discharge on my underwear. I have an appointment in 2 weeks but I'm very scared what this can be. I am sexually active, use no protection. Can this be pregnancy? Or what can it be?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. The changes in the period pattern could be affected due to pregnancy or even hormonal derangements. It is difficult to comment on the cause for your symptoms without examining you or going ahead with further evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough evaluation and further assistance with getting periods back to normal and regulating them. If pregnancy is suspected, consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately.
Take care.
