Well, are they spots? The brown substance is likely old blood. Have you recently had an abortion? If so, the old blood means that you're not getting any new bleeding, which is definitely a good thing. If, however, you still bleed bright red after 2 or 3 weeks, it may mean you're not healing properly. This could be due to an infection caused by retained "products of conception," or tissue from the pregnancy still inside the uterus. In this case, see your doctor immdiately. If you can't get an appointment for that day (which is unlikely, because most gynocologists are prepared for such situations and will jump at an emergency), get to the emergency room.

What does spotting look like?

Spotting is what happens when just a little of the menstrual blood comes out in the middle of your cycle(when you're not expecting a period at all) or it is a sign that your normal flow is about to begin. Spotting is usually light in color, and doesn't require a hefty sized napkin to clean up. But I am on birth control and I am actually expecting to be on my period and it is very light in color and only lasted for one day. is there something wrong? Am i pregnant? I shouldn't be, or is it not healthy for me to take this birth control anymore?
