  • Brown blood spotting just means that is it a very slow flow. There is nothing to be worried about there, sometimes it can be as dark as black and still normal. The brighter it is the quicker it flows. As for it being early, stress, hormones, anticipation all can play a part in being off schedule. Dont worry about it :0)

  • well normally when i start soon its starts out slow and then is a normal heavy periods are never this light....normally after the first few hours it kicks in full flow and im on bc pills so i know stress can cause it to start early i dont think it would be hormones since im on the only worry is that if this is my period then when im due to start and im taking the sugar pills im going to be ovualting... this happend before and i went to my doc to up the dose of the pill and he said that when this happens i can get pregant cuz the pill isnt working like it should,,,ugh

  • maybe it's implantation bleeding! You might be pregnant I would test.

  • could be pregnancy, could be stress, could be your birth control, change in cycle, or even just your body getting rid of old blood and tissue (especially if it's brown).

  • take a pee test either today or in a couple days and you may be able to tell
