I am 29 yr old and my partner is 28. We are TTC for 3 month now. Normally i have regular period. My cycle is 30 days. Last month i had my period on time (4th Dec 11). However the discharge was very light (aromund 30% of normal flow). This month my period got deplayed 6 days and on 7th day(10 jan) I got brown discharge it was very little i thought my period has started but till 14 jan i did not get my actual flow.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the status of your pregnancy.

This brown discharge can be due to implantation bleeding (due to implantation of the zygote after fertilization) or hormonal changes. For confirming the status of pregnancy by urine for pregnancy test (UPT),you can do a sensitive urine for pregnancy test after 10 days of your missed periods. Otherwise you can get serum HCG test or ultrasound uterus done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
