  • Brown Discharge

    Hi, last week, I had some bad stomach cramps, and yesterday, I noticed some brown discharge, and I just dismissed it, thinking that I may have had diarrhea. Today, I noticed it again, only A LOT darker. I'm twelve, and don't yet have my Period, so I'm wondering if it was my period starting, or if it could be something much worse. I just was kinda worried when I saw the brown, at first I thought I'd crapped myself! but then I realized it was discharge.

    Please help!

  • Hi Lillypie

    Brown discharge can appear before and after a women's period. It is basically old blood hence the colour change. This is quite normal and should go away within a day or so. If it continues i suggest seeing your OBGYN or a doctor

    • Okay, thanks.
      It carried on this morning, but when I was changing my pad, I noticed some red, and I've had REALLY bad cramps so I guess my period is starting.

        It WAS just my period starting.
        and my period is now always brown on the last day of my period.

          Hi Lillypie, don't worry I had the exact same thing as you when I first started my period as well, except I got up to pee and my white knickers where red, I'd been saying to my mum the day before I want to hurry up and be a woman....now though at 22 wish it'd hadn't happened so quick haha glad to know everything's okay and its different for everyone some get brown discharge which is mostly old blood for me.
