Like it tapers from blood to brown 0 Permalink Sam May 18, 2015 18:58 Hello! Thank you for writing in. You can experience spotting at the beginning or the end of your menstruation (or sometimes in the middle of your cycle). But yes, generally it's that brownish liquid, and not the bright red blood you'd experience during menstruation. Let me know if you have any other questions! 0 Permalink readingduchess October 26, 2015 14:54 Hi. I was told the brown blood at the end of your period was discharge; the vagina cleansing itself. Should I chart that brown discharge as spotting? 0 Permalink Lauren November 02, 2015 23:43 Hi reading duchess, thanks for contacting us! Yes, if you see brown liquid or a very small amount of bleeding, this should be marked as 'spotting' in the app. Let me know if you have any other questions! 0 Permalink mfschristensen March 31, 2016 16:08 Hi! This cycle was the first one I noticed some bright red and fluid bleeding right after brown spotting (the brownish usually indicate to me that my period will be over soon), so I was wondering if that's normal? I'm TTA and afraid it could be implantation spotting but I really don't know about this. Thank you for your time. 0 Permalink Please sign in to leave a comment.
