Why do I spot brown and blood for 5-10 days before my period?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Brown blood is an indicator of old blood and this can happen to many women before their periods. However, 10 days before is not necessarily normal and should be checked out with your doctor to make sure your reproductive organs are healthy. They probably are, since it's old, leftover blood but a check up is a good idea.
