Change appointment: Try calling the office and asking for an earlier appointment. Brown discharge usually means old blood. Irregular menstrual bleeding is one of the most common problems gynecologist treat.

I've been spotting and having dark brown discharge for 2 months now, almost everyday. No infections, std's, & ultrasound looked good. What's going on?

Hormone imbalance: It sounds like you are having an imbalance between your estrogen and Progesterone levels. If everything else is ok as you said in your question, your ob/gyn will probably want to put you on or change your birth control pills. I would also inquire about polycystic ovary disease.

Hello Can you help with dark brown clots discharge presently Last month my period was normal?

Could be infection: Or irregular spotting. If there is more odor and frequent discharge unrelated to frequency of intercourse, then it's more likely to be an infection. Irregular menstrual spotting also gets worse with infection on board. If you did not miss a period then it is unlikely those clots are due to a miscarriage. Proceed to see a GYN or family physician to get yourself properly diagnosed and treated.

See your OB GYN: Light irregular bleeding is not necessarily a concern, but the fact that it is constant is some cause for concern. To answer your question I would need to know some more information. The best idea, however, is to go and see your OB GYN and discuss your symptoms to try to get to the diagnosis to be able to treat your problem, whatever it may be. Make sure you go as soon as possible

Probably period: Brown equals old blood. It sounds like that was your period although likely not a normal period for you. It is typical to have an "off" period every now and then. This usually corrects itself over the next few cycles. If it continues see your doctor to discuss cycle regulation. Birth control is very effective at regulating the cycle. If you think you might be pregnant check a test.

Irregular menses: Menstrual flow isn't always bright red. Color depends upon flow rate as well as oxidation duration. Irregular menses are common in young women. Discuss birth control options w/your Family Doc, GYN or Planned Parenthood. Hormonal birth control pills often used to regulate menses.

It's also 8 months that I have dark brown discharge before and after period? Is it dangerouse for my health?

Brown = Blood: A normal period lasts seven days or less. If you're having old brown blood before and after your period, then it's probably lasting more than seven days? I generally recommend seeing a doctor for an examination and possibly an ultrasound to check on this type of problem.

I am a normal 28 day cycle period n this month it came a day early it was dark red n lasted for 3 days n I had brown discharge for the last four days?

Ok to vary: It is normal for a woman's periods to sometimes be different - to be earlier or later by a few days or to last a little longer or shorter than usual. In most cases this is nothing to worry about.

Pregnancy test: If your period is 6 days late, you should take another pregnancy test. The dark brown discharge could be your period starting, or it could be implantation bleeding which occurs when the embryo buries itself in the uterine lining.

Irregular periods are one of the most common problems Obgyns treat.: If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections &  hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do  a home pregnancy test.  there are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

Irregular bleeding: This is may be normal but you should take a pregnancy test if it is even a remote possibility. Wait and see what happens. If symptoms are severe you will have to see your doctor.

Very common: Give it some time! A more regular cycle and bleeding should become more routine. If, however, you start to feel physically different, ie, nausea, sore breasts, etc, do an otc pg test or see your doctor. Pregnancy is rare but can very ocassionaly occur.
