Is there a chance you are pregnant?  It sounds like implantation bleeding.

Old blood. I wouldn’t be too concerned, but I’m no doctor! I ocassionally get brown spotting before a period, but not often.

Changes in hormone levels throughout your cycle can cause mid cycle spotting. Are you on birth control? I used to have issues with mid cycle spotting while on very low dose pills. I’m sure it’s harmless but probably time to get back to the gyn for a checkup.

@hollyberry4:  Not sure I haven’t had a kid yet.  I just take a peak in TTC every once in awhile and the other bees have described it.

@hollyberry4:  This happened to me about 2 weeks ago!! EXACT same symptoms. I’m also really irregular and I totally freaked out when I read about implantation bleeding. My spotting came after exercising also. I just started charting my cycle so I can understand my body a bit better, and I’m fairly certain my period is coming tomorrow or the next day, so I’m not concerned anymore. I’m pretty sure it had something to do with ovulation, or the intense exercise. I decided I’m not going to worry about it unless it happens again my next cycle. Don’t feel crazy though! I thought I was the only one and was convinced something terrible was wrong with me, but I’m feeling more relaxed about it now.

I get brown dishcarge shortly before my period starts. Like clockwork everytime! I get back aches & cramps for a day or two, then about 3-5 days later I get the brown discharge for a few days, then the full blown fun-ness. I’ve read it’s just old blood expelling while everything is getting ready to go. Maybe your period is coming earlier than you expect?
