It sounds like you just had a little spotting, which, as we discussed in your last post, is generally not anything to worry about so long as someone is getting regular health care.

Many people experience spotting that is just part of the natural variations of what the body does.

So, in other words, spotting isn't a sign of anything being wrong.

Are you still experiencing the brownish discharge?

IN terms of why it happens, it can be for a few reasons, but basically when there is a hormone shift, as there can often be during a cycle, the body can respond with some spotting.

Again, a little bit of spotting is generally just a response to the body's processes.

Well, if you haven't done anything that would lead you to be pregnant, then it's not a miscarriage.

You mentioned fingering. How recent was that?


Again, this kind of spottting between periods is not abnormal. It's quite often the body's response to hormonal fluctuations. If it's still going on in the next day or two, then it might be time to talk about seeing a doctor just to make sure everything is okay, but for right now nothing sounds too concerning.
