You are most likely still in peri-menopause. This can be a several month issue, or nearly a year long issue. Irrespective, you are young for menopause. Younger females entering menopause are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease if not given HRT (estrogens). You need tests for FSH and Estradiol. Women need to consider the fact of early osteoporosis. If not on HRT, you need something!

What does brown discharge mean? i am twelve and havent had my first period. (girl)

Just the beginning

Menstrual_cycle
Brownish discharge is often seen prior to actual periods starting. It is completely normal to have a few cycles with brownish discharge and no actual bleeding. Keep a diary of the dates that you observe the discharge by circling the date on the calendar for each day that the discharge is present. You will soon be able to see if there is any pattern to the discharge. No need to worry now.
