Brown discharge spotting may occur during ovulation Brown discharge right before you menses or after your menses still count as your menses? I usually get brown discharge with the red together but then some time I have just brown discharge for hours before the red one and sometime I would have the brown discharge for up to 2days before the red one comes. So under all these circumstance, does the brown discharge count as your menses? Also, towards the end of my menses some time the red discharge stops and then i would have brown for 2 days before I see the clear one.

The brown discharge one gets before menses is it part of menses. I sometime get brown discharge before my period with the same symptoms of the menses ie pain. The brown discharge last some time hours or days before I see the red color discharge. Some females are suffering from spotting which can be very unpleasant and disturbing. Spotting occurs when a small amount of blood passes through the vagina between periods. Sometimes it doesn’t reach the underwear, but is swiped with toilet paper after a bowel movement or urination. The spots can be pink-tinged mucus, rust brown or bright red. Spotting can happen once, or it can last for several hours or even several days. It can appear during using pills and also can appear without any medication.


Spotting does not define the first day of menstruation, which begins on the first day of full bleeding generally every 28 days. Normal spotting may occur following your period. A day or two of spotting after 3 to 5 days of menstruation is normal. One common cause of spotting several days before a period is low progesterone. Progesterone helps to maintain the uterine lining for pregnancy, and when progesterone levels drop, the menstrual cycle occurs. Progesterone-deficient women will see spotting several days to a week before their period is due. This can affect fertility and in some cases causes miscarriage.

Spotting in the middle of your cycle, or ten to fourteen days prior to the start of the next cycle, is normal too. This spotting may occur during ovulation. Mid-cycle spotting may occur for several reasons. When the egg bursts through the follicle, some bleeding may occur. Alternatively, during ovulation, levels of estrogen rise and sometimes prompting the uterus to shed a bit of lining, which shows up as spotting.


Vaginal infection (yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis) or a sexually transmitted infection (trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, or herpes) can cause your cervix to become irritated or inflamed. An inflamed cervix is particularly prone to spotting after sex or a Pap smear. You may also spot or bleed after sex or a Pap smear if you have a cervical polyp (a benign growth). If your period is late you might get a brown, rather than red, discharge. It could also mean that for whatever reason during your last menses the entire uterine lining failed to make a timely exit. Brown Discharge may happen right after periods, and is just "cleaning out" your vagina. Old blood looks brown. This may occur when you are ovulating in the middle of menstrual cycle. Brown vaginal discharge between periods can also be a symptom of a medical concern that is much more sinister than leftover endometrial cells. Some of these conditions include Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), menopause, sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, Chlamydia or genital warts) or cervical cancer. Break-through bleeding, or bleeding when you are not scheduled to bleed, is very common in the first 6 months of continuous birth control pill use. Your body is getting used to the constant level of hormones. Spotting is when the amount of blood is so tiny that no pad or tampon is needed. For More Information Visit: - Brown Discharge
