Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about brown vaginal discharge and increased saliva.

Neither are related. Slight brown vaginal discharge or spotting just before your period is to start is nothing to worry about. It is simply some old blood left from your last period.

Too much saliva is usually not something to worry about unless it persists. It's normal to make more or less saliva depending on what you eat or drink. Your body usually takes care of excess saliva by swallowing more.

You can make too much saliva if one or more salivary gland is overactive or you have problems swallowing.
