  • Brown blood before....

    For months now, i bleed 5 days of brown blood then i have a 4-5 day period of red blood. Is this normal? If so what does it mean? My husband and I are TTC and this past month, we were not successful. So we are trying for round 2 this month. Could that have an effect on it?

  • I never heard of brown. I thought blood is usually red. My wife just finished her period. Also try to avoid sex during your period. My wife and I did that. I have to wait 2 weeks before I can have sex again. I was like I can't wait that long. lol

      • Brown blood should be the blood from your previous periods.
        It just means you've been bleeding and the blood hasn't come out. If it stays in you it goes old/brown. If you bleed for any other reason than your periods then you have a problem I guess.
        I know of women who get brown discharge. I get it myself quite often.

        And it can be that when you get pregnant you might miss a period or get only brown blood.

        • its not a constant bleeding of brown.. i would say its a discharge, but it sticks around for about a week.. then my period comes. It happens EVERY month.. not to much of worry, but it confuses me. As soon as i spot red, is that the first day of my cycle?!

          • It sounds normal to me. It's only a trace of old blood that's why it's not like.. flowing, just a brownish discharge. Or white one mixed with brown.
            Yeah the red blood should be the new period.
            The colour of blood varies from light pink to dark brown/blackish.
            You can also get the brown discharge during/after sex or when exercising.

            • I had a baby in may of 2009 and from then on i had brown blood nonstop until Jan 2010. I had eesure put in in Aug of 09 to. The docs told me that it was from the eesure then they did a bunch of pills to take to stop it then that last doc I seen gave me an ultersound on my uterus and said my uterus wall was really thin and thats why so they told me to take Alive fro 2 weeks stright 400mg a day. And it stopped finally but now this month and last month no peorid at all. I spotted in the middle of feb for 2 days then nothing after that. I still am waiting this month even though it just started for my peiord i took a pg test today and it neg.
