I have the same brown spotting since 2004 now. I have only 5-7 days in my cycle when i don't have it. My cycle is 28 days, and that week off spotting usually happens on day 10-11. I went to a number of specialists, acupuncturists, natural paths no body could give me an answer. I don't take birth control pills. I got checked, everything looked fine. I refused to go through laparoscopy to take a deeper look. I'm scared of having another intrusion. I had a laparoscopy in 2003, when I had no spotting and after that I started to have a constant spotting. Recently I've started experiencing a sharp pain, coming from a spot where my uterus is. I'm really upset with the whole thing and I'm scared that that could affect my chances of ever getting pregnant.
I hear raspberry leaf tea helps, I took it and it did reduce my spotting by a week but my cycles became irregular so I stopped it.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
