COULD BE: You are entering the perimenopausal time probably, but many things can cause bloody discharge. When it is brown that is usually old blood mixed in it. I would check a pregnancy test and then you probably should be seen. We have funky periods in our perimenopausal time of life, but there could also be a problem.
