So I'm supposed to be having my period as of right now. It should be goin on the second day already but I have not got anything. How ever I started getting brown discharge April 28 and last bout 3-4. I'm kinda of confuse on to knowing if that was my period or no. My boobs don't hurt so I don't know should I take a pregnancy test soon or just wait it out and see if it comes. Not sure on what to think. For the past few months my period came on time nothing Changed until this month of may when I spotted early brown discharge thinking my period was coming but nothing just yet... can someone help me?

Thanks ladies! I am still waiting for my period. It has not came just yet. On Wednesday/Thursday will make it a week that I'm late, maybe I should try to take a pregnancy test then. And the spotting that I had at the end of April was pink and brown. I really hate havin to play this waiting game!!! :-/

Hi Isabelle0112,

Thank you for being a part of the EmpowHER community and sharing your question.

Spotting blood or brown discharge may occur when you are ovulating mid cycle.  Since the discharge lasted 3-4 days, potentially, that could be what has happened.

If you have had sex without using birth control, you could be pregnant.  

Was the discharge light brown or dark brown? Pregnancy tops both list, but there are some distinctions you should review in the below resource link.

Brown Vaginal Discharge

I hope this helps.

Be well,

Have you had unprotected inter course ? If so there's a possibility.
Sometimes the brown discharge may just be the early starting points of your period or they could mean infection or pregnancy. I advice you to wait a week, if you still do not get you're period then proceed on taking a pregnancy test
Although you seem to have no pregnancy symptoms, it seems unlikely you are pregnant , but do not take any chances if you have had unprotected intercourse.
