Brown flow is light bleeding that is taking it's time to come out of your body so it is turning brown and mixing with your discharge. This may be the start of your period or this may be as heavy as this period is going to be. You can also get this if your cycle is irregular, not menstruation but spotting due to hormonal imbalance. If you go over three months without a period or keep seeing unusual bleeding like this then go see your doctor to find out what's going on.

When bleeding is "new" it looks redder. Brown indicates "old" blood, meaning the area is no longer actively bleeding. Brownish blood is typically at the end of a period. It happens because blood pools in the bottom of the uterus and sometimes takes its time to flow through the cervix into the vagina.

What does it mean when your on your period and brown discharge comes out instead of blood?

It's still just menstrual fluid. This happens a day or so before you really start bleeding, and it tends to be brown at the end of your period. Older blood turns brown. Your period is more than blood. It's totally normal.

What is the difference between a period and implantation bleeding?

Hi, *Period: - A period is a normal period, normal flow for you around the time you expect your period to arrive. You can not be pregnant and have a normal period. A period signifies that no egg has been fertilised and the egg breaks down and causes the period. * Implantation Bleeding: - Implantation Bleeding occurs 8-12 days after unprotected sex when the egg has been fertilised by the sperm. Not every woman experiences implantation bleeding and it is not as common as many people believe. When implantation bleeding occurs its usually spotting of blood or light bleeding which lasts a few hours to 2 (sometimes 3) days. Implantation bleeding can be: * Light bleeding in underwear. * Bleeding not requiring a pad or tampon. * Bleeding or streaks of blood on tissue paper when you wipe. * Pinkish bleeding which is light. * Brown bleeding which is light. * Discoloured pinkish, redish or brownish vaginal discharge.

I have had cramping on my stomach and then I was bleeding So I thought that I got my first period but now on your pad there is brown not red Is it still blood?
