hi -

I think im starting my period (very obvious period cramps), but I've been getting this dark brown discharge on my underwear all day instead of real blood. what's wrong? what is this?

And also, my period has skipped an entire month (I took a pregnancy test that came out negative, and I always used a condom to have sex), and I'm getting my period now i think ...even though I've only seen brown come out. Could the missed period have something to do with this discharge?

thanks.

the discharge stopped but my period didn't come. what's going on?

and this is very likely out of the question, but what does it look like when you have a miscarriage? i'm just racking my brain for what could be wrong with me. (and i'll see a doctor but i cant during the weekend)

Unless you've been at risk of STI's or pregnancy, there's no cause for concern. It's normal to get some light spotting before your period shows up, and have it play peek-a-boo for a day or so.

Miscarriage looks like a menstrual period, usually a bit heavier. This is definitely not what you're dealing with. [Smile]

(Joz, I do believe this is your third warning- please make sure that the forum you're posting in isn't for staff only. The only forums you can't post in are Ask Scarleteen and Emergencies and Crises. Please do try to pay attention.)
