Brown discharge for a week prior to my period.

Hey all,

Having brown discharge a few days before my main flow was pretty normal for me my entire life. Normally I had 1 day of light brown, day 2 was dark brown with spotted red, and day 3 the flow would begin.

For the last two months, however, I have had the brown start 8 days and 7 days before my flow started. Its been very light brown, and one day each time a drop of red occurred. (Day 2 last month, day 4 the month before) Two months ago my period ended up being 3 days later than normal, and this month my period was on time.

Nothing has changed in the past few months. We are TTC, but I took a test (at my nurses request) and it was negative.

Two questions:

#1 - Is it abnormal for a 27 year old to suddenly have a change in her periods like this after being normal for many years?

#2 - Will the brown starting a week before my period harm my chances of TTC?

Thank you in advance for reading and any responses!

Re: Brown discharge for a week prior to my period.

Hello there. Let me just say that this is my personal experience, so if there is ever a burning or odor with this discharge, or pain, I would definitly see a OBGYN. But I too, have had brown discharge before and after my cycle. It can vary in amount and color, but I'm pretty sure it's just spotting. One other thing it may be, is yeast. Every women has yeast, but an infection can occur when the woman is producing waaaay too much. But some women produce more than others. Yeast can have an odor to it, but its not supposed to be offensive.
