Why Am I Having Spotting/Brown Discharge
Okay for the past couple of days I have had slight spotting of blood but mostly brown discharge what dose this mean?
Brown discharge is typically old blood, which could just have been delayed menstrual bleeding. If it's in the middle of your cycle, it could be related to your pills, if you are on the birth control pill. It's probably nothing to worry about if this is the only time it's happened.
Thank you for visiting NetWellness.
