Is brown discharge before period normal? I had my period last month and since then I only had protected sex.

Brown = old blood

Stringio
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. Brown simply indicates old blood and is normal. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit

When was testing?

Pregnancy_test
If the pregnancy tests were done a few days to a week after missing the expected period, and the tests were done correctly, and all results were negative, then one was not pregnant.

I had the marina for almost 2 years now i never had a period and have a thick brown discharge for a couple days and i dont have any insurance?

Mirena bleeding

Insurance
It's very common to have various types of abnormal bleeding with a totally effective Mirena in place. Thick brown discharge as you describe doesn't sound particularly concerning. Check for the string. If it's in place, chances of pregnancy or some other problem is very low. If you have pain, odor or don't feel well, be seen. You can run a home pregnancy test if it would help reassure you.

Brown period for 3 days...then light brown discharge and then thick light brown/clear mucus, looked like a mucus plug, what could it be?

Probably period

Stringio
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 and preventing pregnancy.

Healthy but had late, light period with thick brown discharge and upper left abdomen pain?

Late menses

Abdomen
Pain associated with an abnormal period might be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. You should be seen by your gyn and have a preg test, and possibly a sonogram.
