Does this sound like a period?

Just curious if anyone else had this happen. I should be on my period. And I kinda am? I had some brown discharge at the beginning of my period and has kept doing it. Not much. Not like a period. No cramps, but I feel crappy. Do you think it’s a weird period, or I’m pregnant? I’m gonna wait till I would be a week late

I get that sometimes in the beginning but usually at the end of my period I’ll get it for a few days. More than spotting but not enough to use a tampon at all.

Sounds like implant bleeding. Take a pregnancy test

I normally get brown blood towards the end of a period, not the start. And my implantation bleeding is always browny… wait it out like you’ve said and test if your period doesn’t come xx

I just started & it started with brown bleeding. I’m also 6mo postpartum

Mine starts off as brown spotting for a few days before the real period begins :woman_shrugging:

it has happened to me before and I was not pregnant

My periods used to always be like that. Then I had to start taking meds to make me cycle. At 45 my period finally got “normal”. But since this is unusual for you, try a pregnancy test.

If this is unusual for you and it concerns you I’d call my doctor’s office. They can let you know what to do.

Since you haven’t had a regular period it would be wise to have a pregnancy test because sometime during egg fertilization and pregnancy implantation you may just spot for a few days. If you have been active sexually it’s a good possibility. Spoken from a maternity nurse.

That’s how my period was for 2 months before I got pregnant. Barely anything and just slight brown discharge. Doc told me it was normal.

It could be old blood that wasn’t expelled. I have that on occasion. If it still feels weird when you’re past your date to start your period then I would go to your doctor. It scared me the first few times I saw it for myself. You know your body the best though. To get reassurance I’d have it checked out when you can get in for a regular appointment

Actually I can’t remember where I heard it but I was told it was normal for it to be brown at the start and at the end but that could be wrong and this is making me question it a little but I’m no doctor and I can’t remember where I heard it🤷‍♀️

You could be pregnant. My daughter had a sort of period when she was actually pregnant with her first child.

I do this also but I have endometriosis. It starts a few days before my actual period

I get some of those symptoms. Sounds like Aunt Flo is taking her time. It may be a good idea to go to a doctor if you’re really worried.

You should check yourself out to be safe. That doesn’t sound normal even if you were pregnant it wouldn’t do that. You do get spots at times during pregnancy but not brown spots

My periods are like that every time I get a period—but I’m on birth control that’s meant to stop your period completely. I’d go see a doctor if you’re worried it might be pregnancy symptoms as OTC tests don’t always give you an accurate read
