As badly as I feel for saying this, I am very relieved to hear I am not the only one with this problem. I too, have been having this brownish spotting approximately 7 days after my normal period ends, for years. I am 35 years old. Between the 2 family medicine doctors I've seen, I have been put on at least 7 different birth control pills (none of which have helped). Last week I went to an OB GYN, who took a few tests and said I have vaginitis and that may be causing the "spotting". I am taking the antibiotic she prescribed but I really don't think I've had "vaginitis" for 4+ years. I have been looking up the symptoms online (which is how I got here) and don't have any of them, besides the dark brown spotting.
If anyone else has any other knowledge/advice, it would be greatly appreciated. As bad as this is going to sound, I am so tired of ruined underwear and nervousness before and after sex, hoping the spotting has subsided, at least for those intimate moments...for mine and my boyfriend's sake...
