menstral cramping but no period (slight bleeding)

I'm not due for my period for another 2 weeks. On sunday I noticed a brown discharge (like old blood) when I went to the bathroom. Then last night I had some redness in my discharge and today too. I guess you can say I'm spotting, there is very little blood. but I have cramps like I'm on my period.

has anyone had this before?

You could also just be ovulating which can cause spotting and sometimes cramping; especially if it's mid-month which it seems to be. Unless, of course, you didn't get your last period, then I would tend to agree with the previous poster that pregnancy could be a possibility.

I agree with Sunny. If you are two weeks out from your period, you should be ovulating. Did you have a normal period last month? Sometimes your body randomly sluffs (is that a word?) off old material left over from previous cycles. I would call your gyn and ask. They may be able to tell you over the phone what you are experiencing.

i think it could be either ovulation or implantation bleeding. wait until the day you expect your period and take a pregnnacy test.
good luck.
