Brown discharge or period
Posted on: 04/24/2007
hi, i am 13 and i have been having brown discharge on and off for the past 4 months. the discharge is sometimes light brown or dark brown. there has been so much discharge that i have had to wear a pad. i have not gotten my period yet. i have not told my parents about the discharge. should i tell them? do you think that it could just be my period? i am really concerned.
I think you should talk to your doctor, and your parents. You can mark a calendar the days you have the discharge, which will help the doctor know if you are having a cycle. Better to know than wonder! Good luck!
