Health question.

I'm a bit embarrassed to ask this question,but here it goes... This past month I got my period one week early from Oct 7 to Oct 12 and now eight days later I am having brown discharge. Do any of you have any idea what this could mean?

  • If you haven't douched in that time then it's probably just old period ick that didn't come out yet, I've done that before.

  • Are you pregnant? If you are than I would see your OB, if not than it's most likely nothing.

  • I have had brownish red discharge(blood) a few days after my menstrual. But not eight days later. I agree with all the ladies but, if your concern maybe you should talk to your obgyn.

  • Yep, sounds like old blood. This happens to me from time to time, as well as after I had my daughter four years ago.
