Smears, but no monthly


Violation of the monthly cycle happens in every woman. Brown daub instead of menstruation makes you worry about your own health. But is it all serious? Why monthly smear, but do not start?

Main reason for strange discharge

All processes of the menstrual cycle are under the influence of hormones. The balance is very important for the normal functioning of the reproductive system and the health of the woman as a whole. With a high amount of estrogen and insufficient levels of progesterone, menstruation is delayed or is going in a strange way, namely, brown daub is present. At the same time, an insufficient amount of estrogen in the first phase of the cycle interferes with the normal functioning of the genital organs. Therefore, a new egg does not develop, ovulation does not occur. The endometrial layer in the uterus does not thicken. When the time comes to the next menstruation, there is simply nothing to reject. Instead of the usual discharge present brown daub. To restore a full menstrual cycle, you need to adjust the balance of hormones. Moreover, in case of serious violations, this is very difficult to do. You need to know what kind of hormone is not enough, in what dose to take and how much time. There are a lot of factors provoking hormone imbalance. And people call them causes.

In this case, there are situations when hormonal imbalance occurs intentionally, and brown daub instead of menstruation is the norm.

Scanty brown discharge on the background of contraceptive use

Their main task of birth control pills is to prevent ovulation. An insufficient amount of estrogen prevents the birth and development of the egg. There is simply no ovulation. In addition, a low level of estrogen in the first half of the cycle does not allow the endometrium layer to develop in the uterus. Then instead of menstruation appear scanty brown discharge. Three months is getting used to the new conditions of existence. Bloody discomfort during the entire menstrual cycle. Appear can any day. Doctors regard this situation as the norm. But if the brown discharge continues to appear instead of menstruation longer than 3 months, the question arises about the replacement of the drug.

Lactation due to pregnancy

Delayed menstruation is considered the main sign of pregnancy. But this is not always the case. Due to the individual characteristics of the woman’s body and the influence of various factors, ovulation can occur not in the middle of the cycle, as is customary, but towards the end. Then the hormonal background does not have time to restructure. First, there is a slight delay, then a scanty brown discharge. For the safe development of pregnancy is responsible for the first 3 months of progesterone. Its lack of it causes brown discharge instead of menstruation, when conception occurred. The further fate of the fertilized egg depends on how far it can rise. High probability of failure. If a pregnancy is not successful, the test results may be false. In the first 2 weeks, one strip will appear in the presence of tangible signs of pregnancy. If a woman wants to save the child, you should seek help from a doctor.

Spotting can smear and in the presence of ectopic pregnancy. Then, in addition to the strange secretions of brown color, there is general weakness, dizziness, severe pain in the lower back, lower abdomen. The situation becomes life threatening if the brown scanty discharge turns into heavy bleeding.

In case of violation of the monthly cycle with unusual discharge instead of monthly should be visited by a gynecologist. Better to be safe.

Severe nervous exhaustion

Monthly smeared brown instead of normal discharge due to nervous tension. Especially when it comes to stress. The nervous system does not attach much importance in violation of the monthly cycle, and yet it is she who is involved in the production of hormones. Regulates the processes of the brain - the hypothalamus. It is associated with the central nervous system, and it, in turn, gives instructions to the internal organs and systems about the required hormones. Strong stress or, as they say, overload, leads to negative processes in the body. The monthly cycle is broken, there are brown discharge. Monthly smear, but do not go. Moreover, short-term stress leads to severe bleeding, and long-term - to the absence of normal menstruation.

Constant nervous exhaustion causes an imbalance of hormones. Daub instead of full menstruation is observed at first, then menstruation does not come at all. On your psycho-emotional state should pay special attention.

Brown discharge after antibiotics

Taking certain medications affects the monthly cycle mediocre. Such drugs include strong antibiotics. Misconception that antibiotics only affect the intestinal microflora, cause dysbacteriosis and nothing else. Modern medicine has proven the link between these drugs and the violation of the cycle. Antibiotics affect the liver, pancreas, which, in turn, is fraught with changes in hormonal levels. In addition, antibiotics affect the nervous system. The delay in menstruation after a course of treatment can range from 1 week to 1 month. In this case, very often monthly smeared with brown, and do not go fully. After prolonged use of antibiotics. Especially in the form of injections, the menstrual cycle goes astray uniquely. In other cases, it can do without it.

Gynecological diseases

Violation of the menstrual cycle of a woman causes sexually transmitted diseases - chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis, etc. The woman has a high amount of discharge, with an unpleasant smell. During the period of menstruation there are bloody discharge. If the monthly smear is not one cycle, the disease has become chronic. In addition to brown discharge, worried about the pain in the lower abdomen, weakness, general deterioration of health, fever.

Hormonal failure in a woman’s body provokes various gynecological diseases. Protective functions decrease, immunity decreases, the number of pathogenic microorganisms, altered cells increases. Pain in the lower abdomen, daub instead of menstruation may be a sign:

  • cervical erosion,

  • endometrial polyps,
  • uterine fibroids,
  • cancer tumor,
  • and etc.

All diseases are diagnosed in the doctor's office, it is impossible to make a correct diagnosis at home. And delaying a visit to the doctor can result in serious health problems.

Violated cycle due to inflammatory processes in the genitals. Then, over the course of a month, a woman has a clear discharge in an increased amount, instead of menstruation, bloody discharge or daub begin. In addition, pain in the lower abdomen, lower back is disturbed, intestinal upset is observed, sometimes the temperature rises.

Brown discharge instead of menstruation should alert, if lasting a few days, a full menstruation does not begin. Otherwise, we are talking about a small hormonal imbalance, when the uterus is not yet ready to reject the endometrial layer, the blood droplets are released gradually. Under the influence of the acidic environment of the vagina and oxygen turn into brown discharge. The same situation may be present when after menstruation it continues to smear for several days. This is nothing dangerous, but you can reconsider your lifestyle.

What are the evidence of spotting instead of menstruation?

Spotting instead of menstruation is one of the main reasons for referring women to a gynecologist. We all know that regular periods are the main sign of the correct functioning of the woman’s body, as well as the psychological comfort of the weak half of humanity. But what if the cycle is lost, and there were brown discharge instead of menstruation?

Norm when smearing

In some cases, short-term, painless, scanty discharge, which is observed in an absolutely healthy woman, is considered to be the norm. Such discharge may appear before menstruation, a few hours or even one to two days before it starts.

They indicate the preparation of the mucosa to the process of rejection of the endometrium (inner lining of the uterus) and lowering the level of progesterone. If such secretions are observed after menstruation, this may indicate the release of the last particles of the mucous membrane with coagulated blood through the cervical canal.

As a rule, they stop at 5-7 days after the onset of menstruation.

When using oral contraceptives or a helix during the first two months, most women report such a discharge. They arise because the body adapts to new working conditions.

Hormonal drugs that are not suitable for any particular woman or the condition of her body prevents them from being taken, can cause a spotting out for a longer period. In this case, you should contact your gynecologist to find the right drugs and not to harm health. In addition, the appearance of such secretions during ovulation is considered the norm.

A frequent occurrence is the appearance of spotting during the first cycles in young girls, since the body is only rearranged to hormonal changes.

If instead of monthly appeared pink discharge - this indicates the beginning of pregnancy. They appear during the implantation of the egg into the wall of the uterus.

These secretions are considered the norm and do not bear any harm to the fetus. Some time after childbirth, the menstrual cycle is restored in women, and the appearance of daubs should not alarm the young mother.

More discharge instead of menstruation can be observed after surgery:

In addition, daub instead of menstruation occurs in women older than 40 years. In them it is caused by the natural aging of the ovaries, which over the years lose the ability to perform their functions in full.

Pathology with smearing

Even with a negative pregnancy test, but if you have recently had unprotected sexual intercourse, you should definitely be examined by a specialist to take the necessary measures and avoid complications such as bleeding or rupture of the fallopian tube.

Daub appears due to damage to the fallopian tube due to the development and growth of the fetus and can last both during the so-called menstruation and after it.

In ectopic pregnancy, in addition to discharge, there are occasional abdominal pain, symptoms of toxicosis and elevated basal temperature.

Another cause of daubs can be a hormonal imbalance in a woman’s body. Changes in the level of estrogen, progesterone or prolactin, which happens as a result of a disruption of the thyroid or in some diseases. In addition, doctors identify the causes that are provoked by gynecological diseases.

Brown discharge may appear after hypothermia of the body, that is, after a long stay outside in the cold season. After this there is a risk of inflammation in the uterus, appendages and cervix. The most common diseases that cause daub are:

  1. Cervical erosion is a disease of a pathological nature. Characterized by the appearance of sores at the level of the cervix, which is the cause of scanty discharge.
  2. Endometriosis is the proliferation of tissue, which should be normal only in the uterus, to other organs.
  3. Infectious diseases - in case of unpleasant sensations while going to the toilet, sharp pains, irritation of the vagina, you should be examined for the presence of sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis).

Thus, daubing that lasts more than a week and appears regularly can signal serious disturbances in a woman’s body. It can be considered a pathology if the discharge appears:

  • after every sexual intercourse,
  • a woman does not accept hormonal contraceptives,
  • they are not tied to the monthly
  • there is a high fever, lower abdominal pain, irritation of the genitals,
  • a woman has more than a year of menopause,
  • late terms of pregnancy.

In order to diagnose the cause of the discharge, a woman should be examined on a gynecological chair and should tell the doctor in detail about her state of health.

In addition, the gynecologist may offer to undergo colposcopy and smear on the flora and the presence of atypical cells on the cervix. You will also have to do an ultrasound examination of the genital organs and donate blood for a general analysis and for hormones. If all of these tests are insufficient, hysteroscopy, diagnostic curettage of the endometrium, or laparoscopy will be necessary.

Why monthly smear and not go

Hello. I should have gone M2 days ago, but they smear light brown. In the last cycle before the monthly 4 days, brown ointment ... During the reception of these drugs, there is a slight spotting of brown color, which should soon cease.

Why is there a daub in early pregnancy?

5-6 .. what it could be, really want a child, the test did, after 10 days when I could have taken it, negative ..

However, if they are accompanied by pain or do not end for a long time, you should consult a specialist.

By the way, in modern medicine there are facts of similar violations in younger women. However, this may be a sign of more serious violations. The reasons for this phenomenon we consider.

What can it be, please tell me. My husband and I really want a baby, but it hasn’t been done for 2 months what to do. 25 days ... As for B, I doubt the stomach is pulling ... M fell to 36.8 ... now I think ... Bt yesterday was 36.8 like low ... should come ... but today 37 should not be like ... Thank you girls ... the doctor had ... that so far can not say. Vitamins and herbs did not drink ...

3 months ago 1 month 5 days for cinnamon-colored mazol the next month only half a day was also anointed, and this month there wasn’t any delay at all. How to call it monthly or discharge? If 1-2 days before the onset of menstruation appears pink or brown daub, it is generally not dangerous. Brown discharge may occur when a woman has been outside for a long time and her body has been exposed to low temperatures.

Disorders of menstruation due to surgery

It didn’t help much ((I don’t give a diagnosis. HCG tomorrow). Any surgical effect on the reproductive system of a woman’s body can lead to the appearance of brown vaginal discharge, or vice versa: obesity occurs.

In the event that a woman’s sexual contact is irregular or absent, pregnancy or infectious diseases cannot be the reasons for the appearance of brown secretions.

Disruption of the natural level of hormones in the body affects the course of menstruation in women.

When taking birth control pills, which include hormones, in the woman's body may occur dysfunction of the reproductive system.

I had a miscarriage 3 months ago, the first menstrual periods went fine, and the second ones alerted, they just anointed and everything, but they went as it should be for 7 days. Did a lot of tests, all negative, ultrasound good. This phenomenon is normal.

Hormonal drugs that are not suitable for a particular woman, as well as a state of health that prevents them from being taken, can cause the appearance of scanty brown discharge instead of menstruation.

In order to correctly diagnose the causes of discharge in the cases listed above, it is important to accurately certify the fact of pregnancy, since the chosen treatment options depend on it.

Also, if a woman’s age has passed the mark of 40 years and the body has entered the phase of the so-called premenopause, daubing before menstruation is also possible.

Dudging instead of menstruation or in front of them is a common occurrence during the normalization of the menstrual process.

In addition, they are due to the lifestyle and health of the patient.

Brown discharge instead of menstruation - when is this a reason to go to the doctor?

Throughout her life, a woman often faces various gynecological problems, which, by the way, do not always indicate a particular disease.

For example, if you notice brown discharge instead of menstruation, this may be due to a number of reasons, and may serve as a serious reason for seeking medical attention. We will understand everything in more detail.

Are you healthy if ...

If you find your case in the following situations, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about:

  • A few hours after the discharge, your period started.
  • You notice a discharge right after your period. It is also completely natural and normal.
  • You are new to the intimate field. During the first sexual intercourse, even after losing virginity, such discharge is the norm.
  • You are not new to intimate life, but it bothers you why menstruation is brown. Know that violent prolonged sex can cause damage to the vaginal mucosa, hence the brown drops on the linen.
  • You are taking hormonal contraceptives, which include pills, a hormonal ring or a patch. Brown discharge is possible in this case in the middle of the menstrual cycle.
  • You are breastfeeding. Scanty brown discharge instead of menstruation in this case suggests that your body has not fully regained its strength.

In these cases, you should definitely visit your gynecologist:

  • Stains on laundry appear in the middle of your cycle, and you do not take any hormones.
  • In addition, you are worried about pain in the lower abdomen, itching, dryness, burning, pain during intercourse, as well as increased body temperature.
  • You notice a similar symptom after each contact with a partner.
  • You are over 45 years old and have not visited you for more than a year.
  • There is a possibility that you are pregnant. In this case, such a selection can be a threat of miscarriage.
  • Scanty monthly brown color accompanied by an unpleasant odor, go with clots. In this case, you also need to exclude gynecological disease.

Middle of the menstrual cycle

As we have said, if you do not take hormonal drugs, the following diseases can be the causes:

  • Cancer or erosion of the cervix.
  • Endometritis (inflammation of the uterus).
  • Inflammation of the vagina due to a sexually transmitted disease.
  • Fail your female cycle.

And now more.

  • If discharge occurs more often after sex, then most likely the first cause is erosion or cervical cancer.
  • If there is a risk of catching a sexually transmitted disease, then such discharge is accompanied by itching, burning, pain during sex and urination.
  • If you are planning a pregnancy, then such an allocation does not turn out to be good for you. This may be a symptom of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.
  • Endometritis is usually accompanied by dull pain in the ovaries.

Dark brown discharge

Usually the gynecologist is not interested in the shade of your discharge. The causes and symptoms are the same, the only difference is in the amount of blood secreted, which affects the color. However, there are several other diseases that can trigger a brown discharge instead of menstruation:

Brown daub instead of menstruation can be for quite domestic reasons:

  • Strong stress.
  • Exhaustion.
  • Toxic poisoning of the body.
  • Excessive exercise.

Causes of daubing instead of menstruation

Many women during their lives often face daubs instead of menstruation, the causes of which can be very diverse.

The menstrual cycle is an indicator of a woman’s reproductive health. It is desirable that each representative of the beautiful half of humanity has a special calendar in which they would monthly mark the beginning and end of their monthly periods.

If health is all right, then there should be no delays. But patients on an appointment with a gynecologist sometimes complain that they are concerned about daubing, and not full discharge. The causes of this condition do not always indicate pathology.

If a woman is healthy

Patients of a gynecologist often complain of insignificant discharge, which has an smearing character. There are no other painful symptoms. Brown daub instead of full menstruation may appear in a completely healthy woman in several cases:

  1. Reception of contraceptives, mainly oral. The same phenomenon can be observed with the use of drugs containing hormones. The use of intrauterine contraceptives (spiral, ring, etc.) can also lead to ointment. This is due to the fact that these funds are designed to suppress the process of ovulation. And this leads to a violation of menstruation.
  2. A woman does not complain of health. But she recently became a mother and breastfeeds her baby. Her menstrual cycle may not be immediately restored. Before the onset of normal menstruation, she may temporarily experience such a daub.
  3. The woman was unwell. For example, she had a cold. The body threw all its forces against it. And the sexual sphere was in last place. Normal endometrium in the current cycle did not have time to grow. This inner tissue and began to reject such daubing here, but not normal secretions.

Dirty in a healthy woman can occur not only during menstruation, but also on other days of the cycle.

There may be several reasons for this:

  • sexual intercourse that lasts too long and can damage internal tissues,
  • recently ended monthly, but not all managed to get out,
  • after rupture of the hymen, brownish discharge may occur for several days.

When should you start worrying?

On any violations in the health of a woman may indicate a smear, appearing regularly instead of a full menstruation. This is a serious reason to go to the doctor and tell him about your problems. The gynecologist will identify the cause of the disease and prescribe treatment.

Poor discharge instead of menstruation can trigger various painful processes in the reproductive organs of women. For example, the cause may lie in inflammations of the uterine cavity, in its appendages, in one or both ovaries. Inflammatory processes are caused by various infections (and not only sexual), chronic diseases: fibroids, cysts and the like.

Scanty menstruation occurs in diseases of the endocrine system. Many hormones control women's health. If some of them are deficient or abundant, then there is a failure in the health of the genitals. And this leads to violations of the menstrual cycle.

Another cause of daubs, may be a change in the weight of a woman - a sharp loss of it or a set. It is also associated with hormonal disruption in the body.

It happens that a woman is too keen on exercise. Excessive loads on the body lead to the appearance of daubs.

Professional athletes often have scant discharge, sometimes the absence of menstruation for several months.

A woman has a lot to do with emotions, including sexual health.

Is pregnancy possible?

There are cases when a woman sees brown drops on her underwear instead of expected monthly periods. Among the various reasons there can be such: a pregnancy has come, which is threatened with interruption.

At the same time, other accompanying symptoms can be observed: pain in the lower abdomen, swelling of the mammary glands, constant desire to sleep, high basal temperature. If a woman finds these signs in herself, you should immediately contact a doctor.

Only a doctor will be able to take all measures to save the pregnancy.

It happens that daubing instead of full monthly evidence of the occurrence of ectopic pregnancy. If the doctor suspects the woman in such a diagnosis, then appoint an ultrasound.

If the diagnosis is confirmed, the woman is undergoing surgery for emergency indications. The embryo is removed from the tube. The operation is needed urgently, as the embryo, growing, can tear the fallopian tube. And it threatens to bleed, which can be fatal.

Treatment of this condition is assigned depending on the reasons that caused it. If the daub appeared once, then there is no cause for concern. But if this condition is regularly observed, it is necessary to urgently visit a doctor.

Do not run out monthly - the reasons why, what to do, long, how to stop, when taking contraceptives, smeared

If a woman’s period does not end for a long time, this is a cause for concern. Normally, the duration of critical days from 3 to 7 days. However, with a hormonal failure, the picture may change.

Excessive menstruation can cause both stress and serious illness. In any case, the failure cycle can not be overlooked.

What should be the menstrual cycle, every woman of reproductive age should understand. This will make it clear when something goes wrong in the body:

  • Menstruation appears for the first time in adolescence (approximately 12-13 years old) and continues until the onset of menopause.
  • The duration of the cycle is from 25 to 35 days, which is the norm, and the monthly should go at least three and not more than seven days.
  • After conception and during the entire period of childbearing a woman’s menstruation is absent. After childbirth and completion of breastfeeding, the cycle is gradually restored and normalized.

Hormonal imbalance

Violation of the correct ratio of hormones in a woman's body can occur for a number of reasons, both internal, natural, and external.

Problems with hormonal balance can begin in the following situations:

  • Adolescence. During this period there is puberty and the formation of the menstrual cycle, which at the initial stage is far from regular. The duration of the cycle itself, as well as the duration of critical days, can jump from minimum to maximum values.
  • Pregnancy and postpartum period. The reason is a major change in the body. First, the body is configured to carry the baby, then - comes back to normal. All this is accompanied by a change in the concentration of certain sex hormones.
  • Premenopause and menopause (or menopause). Here everything is explained by the natural extinction of reproductive function, the cessation of ovulation and the production of hormones.

If menstruation does not end at one of the above-mentioned stages of a woman’s life, then this is a variant of the norm. In other cases, you should contact the clinic.

Hormonal contraception

When taking contraceptives, the organs of the reproductive system may also change. OK not only prevent unwanted pregnancy, but can affect the duration of menstruation.

At the beginning of the drug intake, menstruation can be both unnecessarily short and long. If after a few months the cycle has not returned to normal, the exit is an appeal to the gynecologist and the selection of another contraceptive.

Navy or intrauterine device

This type of contraception is convenient and affordable, and at the same time reliable and effective.

However, there are side effects, one of which is profuse and prolonged menstruation. If the period does not end long after the IUD is set up, it is likely that individual intolerance is taking place and the spiral will have to be removed.

Uterine myoma

Uterine myoma is a benign tumor localized in the thickness of the uterine muscle tissue. Pathology is characteristic of the body of women of reproductive age, faced with the problem of hormonal imbalance.

One of the symptoms of fibroids - menstruation, which does not end long, as well as uterine bleeding.

Malignant education

In some cases, the answer to the question of why menstruation does not end may be in the presence of oncology. A malignant lesion affecting the reproductive organs, often manifested in the form of prolonged bleeding.

Such a diagnosis is terrible, but today it is not a sentence. There are radical methods to save the life of a woman with timely visit to a doctor and identify pathology. Therefore, it is so important not to postpone the visit to the doctor if there are signs of failure in the body.

Diseases of the thyroid gland

Malfunction in the thyroid gland is always associated with impaired normal synthesis of hormones. They become in the body too much or, on the contrary, not enough.

In both situations, the consequence may be a violation of the regularity of the cycle and prolonged periods. If there are problems with thyroid, consultation of the endocrinologist is required.

Blood diseases

Some blood diseases associated with a decrease in platelet count lead to a decrease in blood clotting. For this reason, normal menstruation can transform into prolonged and intense bleeding.

If problems with menstruation began precisely because of blood diseases, then the woman has other symptoms, such as increased bleeding of the gums.

It can not be excluded from the list of factors provoking menstrual failure, and stressful situations. Constant fatigue, lack of proper rest, emotional stress, stress - all this leads to disruption of the normal functioning of the reproductive system.

What is the danger?

The danger of prolonged periods, it is known not to many of the fair sex.

The danger is this:

  • Loss of large amounts of blood. It is especially dangerous if the menstruation is not only long, but the discharge becomes more abundant and thick than usual.
  • The development of gynecological pathology. The threat lies in the possible uterine myoma or other formations that require immediate treatment.
  • Abortion. Here we are not talking about prolonged menstruation, but about uterine bleeding, if a woman does not know about her position.

What to do?

Self-medication for prolonged menstruation is excluded. Selection of therapy should deal with the doctor after diagnosis.

In some cases, to stop discharge, hemostatic drugs are prescribed, such as:

In other cases, you need to take other drugs, such as hormones. Prescription of therapy depends on the cause of the problem.

You can stop long periods at home with the help of traditional medicine recipes:

  • Broth horsetail. A tablespoon of raw materials pour a glass of boiling water and cook in a water bath for 15 minutes. Take 50 ml twice a day.
  • Infusion of oak bark, raspberry leaves and strawberries, yarrow and Potentilla goose. Pour a tablespoon of the mixture of herbs with a glass of boiling water and infuse for several hours. Take three times a day, 50 ml per day before meals.

It should be understood that traditional medicine is better to apply after consultation with the doctor and only as a supplement to the main therapy.

Prolonged periods can be evidence of the presence of any diseases in the body. An accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment can only doctor after the examination.

In order to avoid serious consequences, a woman should be attentive to her state of health and go to a gynecologist if her period lasts longer than expected.

Instead of menstruation - brown daub

Attending antenatal care at least once a year is a mandatory measure of prevention of all kinds of problems. But the appearance of colored (most often light brown or dark brown, depending on the amount of blood) discharge immediately alarming. Do not panic, it is better to carefully observe what is happening and how.

There are many natural causes of dark smears. However, it is also impossible to leave what is happening without attention: after all, the reasons can be very serious.

Unusual discharge can occur in any phase of the menstrual cycle. What to think if they appear instead of normal, habitual periods?

A teenage girl recently began menstruating, has not yet established a regular menstrual cycle.

The reproductive system has not yet matured, the concentration of hormones in the blood is not high enough, therefore, periods can be scarce. This condition is called hypomenorrhea and in the first months is considered the norm. If the cycle does not take too long, it is a reason to visit a gynecologist.

A woman has reached a mature age (40-45 years), approaching the period of menopause.

Normal monthly turn into a slight dark brown discharge. Over time, they can become light brown, and then disappear altogether. Climax - a natural process of extinction of reproductive function. The concentration of female hormones in the blood is reduced, and therefore monthly diminish.

Brown discharge is found several days before menstruation and may last several days after.

This is also quite physiological. If the period of “smearing” does not last more than three or four days, the discharge does not have a sharp unpleasant odor and is not accompanied by pain, itching or other disorders of well-being, then there is nothing to worry about.

A woman uses hormonal contraception.

It can be preformed drugs (OC), Mirena or Levonov intrauterine device, vaginal ring, patch. Their use (especially the IUD) often leads to hypomenorrhea: menstruation becomes scarce, turning into dark brown smearing discharge.

If the discharge occurs during ovulation (in the middle of the cycle), you need to consult a doctor: perhaps you need to change the contraceptive.

A woman breastfeeds a baby, there is no menstruation for several months, then there is no heavy brown discharge.

After giving birth, if the mother performs breastfeeding, she has a lack of menstruation (the so-called lactational amenorrhea).

This is because the release of the hormone prolactin inhibits ovulation. But over time, feedings are becoming more rare, supplements are added.

Prolactin is becoming smaller, so that the menstrual cycle is gradually restored.

However, here a woman sometimes lurks a surprise: under the cover of amenorrhea, she may not notice the onset of a new pregnancy. Brown discharge just may be a sign of pregnancy. Therefore, when they appear, especially if not used contraception, be sure to do a pregnancy test. A negative test cancels a surprise.

Failure of the menstrual cycle due to external force majeure.

Menstruation may not come at all or drastically decrease in volume if the body is subjected to significant stress. It can be a mental shock, a sharp overcooling or a sudden very strong physical exertion (say, responsible sports), surgery or trauma, chemotherapy and radiation, a sharp change in weight in any direction, climate change.

General diseases and pathological conditions, including endocrine disorders.

The menstrual cycle can be disturbed with decompensated diabetes mellitus, disorders of thyroid function, intensive smoking and alcohol abuse, and drug addiction. Other factors may be infectious diseases with fever, hypovitaminosis or anemia, poisoning (including occupational hazards).

All this, of course, is not at all the norm, and it is worth worrying, but such problems are not solved by a gynecologist. It is necessary to connect the relevant specialists, as well as get rid of bad habits. When the general state is normalized, the cycle will recover itself.

Brown discharge continues after the end of menstruation (ten days or more). The discharge does not appear instead of menstruation, but in the middle of the cycle, while the woman does not take hormonal drugs.

Unfortunately, this can be a symptom of a serious disease: endometritis or endometriosis, erosion or cervical cancer (often “smeared” after PA), uterine tumors, cysts and inflammation of the ovaries.

The discharge is accompanied by a number of unpleasant sensations: a pungent smell, yellow or greenish hue of discharge, the presence of lumps in them, pain in the lower abdomen or during intercourse, pain during urination, itching and swelling in the external genitalia, and an increase in body temperature.

Most likely, this indicates the infection of any of the sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Sexually transmitted diseases do not count: gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, chlamydia, syphilis and others. Sometimes an exacerbation of an existing chronic disease occurs.

The woman has already entered the period of menopause, there have been no monthly periods for more than a year - and suddenly dark spots appear on the underwear.

Possible pathological process in the uterus or appendages (see bleeding during menopause).

The possibility of pregnancy is not excluded. In this case, dark brown discharge can be a sign of a beginning or threatening miscarriage, including during ectopic pregnancy.

An urgent need to do a test and consult a doctor: it is possible that the gynecologist will prescribe an ultrasound scan and analysis for hCG.

It is worth noting that minor bleeding in the first days after the onset of pregnancy can be normal and simply signal embryo implantation in the uterine cavity.

In the first trimester, some pregnant women have occasional discharge that corresponds to the time of menstruation, but this symptom requires close attention. Urgent assistance is required if there are nagging pains in the lower back or lower abdomen.

Hypomenorrhea is accompanied by fever, pulling pain in the lumbar region, ovaries, lower abdomen. Often this happens after hypothermia, with a decrease in immunity.

In this case, it is necessary to suspect an inflammatory process in the ovaries, tubes, or uterus (adnexitis or endometritis).

A woman is approaching a climacteric period, but cycle disturbances occur against the background of insomnia, headaches, pressure surges, hot flashes.

The so-called ovarian exhaustion syndrome may be an early menopause. Gynecologist will help correct violations and improve the general condition.

Daubs before menstruation

Scanty discharge from the vagina - “daubing” is disturbing at certain periods of the life of almost all women. Spotting before menstruation or instead of them can appear in adolescent girls, women over 40, even during pregnancy. Possible causes of this phenomenon:

Changes in hormonal levels. Changes occur during the first year - two after the first menstrual bleeding (menarche), as well as in those women who enter menopause.

These phenomena can be considered the norm only if the results of surveys and analyzes for a given age are close to ideal, that is, no apparent pathology has been identified.

Then spotting before menstruation and after some time after them can be considered the norm.

Gynecological diseases. Endometriosis, uterine fibroids, adenomyosis, cervical ectopia, cancer in many cases, give themselves bleeding outside of menstruation. Such intermenstrual bleeding should be reported to the doctor.

Ointment instead of menstruation causes many women to panic, as it is considered a sign of pregnancy or gynecological pathology. Scanty periods can appear in the following cases:

Мазня перед месячными после родов. At this time in the body of a woman there are multiple changes, after pregnancy everything returns to normal, and the menstrual cycle is restored.

However, in many women, menstruation does not immediately become regular, moreover, their character may change. For example, if a woman's monthly bleeding was previously abundant, after birth, instead of menstruation, a brown daub appears. In most cases, this is also the norm.

Still, it is better to make a check for a possible pregnancy, because with her there are also scanty discharge.

Daubs instead of menstruation during pregnancy. When daubing instead of menstruation, if usually menstruation is abundant, and sexuality is active, it makes sense to do a pregnancy test. During pregnancy, "real" menstruation does not happen, and spotting occurs frequently. It is safer to confirm the pregnancy with a blood test for hCG.

Spotting should not be left without attention, because they can be a sign of ectopic pregnancy, and not just uterine.

Discharges of this kind are not a reason for abortion, but they can say that a miscarriage begins or the fertilized egg has stopped developing, so you need to do an ultrasound of the uterus and see the level of hCG.

Contraception. Ointment instead of menstruation is quite common in women who use hormonal contraception (birth control pills, Mirena intrauterine device, ring Nova Ring). For many women who are protected by Miren, menstruation is completely absent.

Often, women who take oral contraceptives that are low in hormone can have daubing instead of menstruation. When changing pills to others with higher estrogen levels, menstrual flow usually becomes more abundant.

However, doctors do not advise to change the drug solely for this reason, since scanty menstrual periods are a variant of the norm, and on the contrary, excessive blood loss does not benefit the body.

Menopause, syndrome of premature ovarian exhaustion. Syndrome of the premature depletion of the ovaries is observed due to the premature termination of their function.

Even a young woman can experience symptoms that are characteristic of women who have entered menopause (flushing, sweating, irritability, depression, decreased libido).

And in this case, and when menopause instead of menstruation is observed daub instead of menstruation.

Menstruation does not end there, what to do

An absolutely healthy woman has a period of 3-7 days. But due to improper diet and constant stress, menstruation may not stop after a set time. In this article we will tell you what to do if your period does not end.

Note that if you feel a cutting or sharp pain in your side with the bleeding, it may be an ectopic pregnancy. Bleeding occurs due to rupture of the fallopian tube and may not end for a long time. Usually, a woman cannot stay in such a state for a long time, and she is hospitalized. Excessive blood loss and infection can even cause death.

If 3-7 days have already passed, which should go monthly, but you still see on the pads of the blood stain, you may have adenomyosis. This is a disease of the uterus, which is associated with the growth of the endometrium in the deeper layers of the organ.

As a result, nodes appear in the uterus that are bleeding. Usually, abundant bleeding occurs for 2-3 days, the rest of the time on the strip leaves brown marks. Such spotting can not be ignored, adenomyosis causes infertility.

Sometimes the cause of non-terminating menstruation is a malfunction of the thyroid gland. Due to an imbalance of hormones, the bleeding does not stop. To establish the concentration of hormones it is necessary to donate blood for analysis.

How to make the monthly stop? In case of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, the bleeding is stopped in the hospital. Taking herbal decoctions or questionable drugs can make the situation worse. You will only lose precious time. Perhaps while you drink herbal tea, you develop sepsis.

If the cause of bleeding is hormonal, then broths can be taken, normalizing the balance of hormones. Good for bleeding helps tincture of water pepper.

This substance stimulates contractions of the uterus, and bleeding ends quickly. Usually tincture of water pepper is prescribed after abortion or surgery. To stop the blood you can drink Vikasol or Ditsinol.

Remember, any medications should be taken as prescribed by a doctor.

If the bleeding is accompanied by aching pain, prepare a decoction of horsetail. It will reduce discharge and dull the pain. You can brew tea from raspberry leaves, it helps to stop bleeding. If after a medical abortion there are abundant bleeding, you should definitely make a tea from a mixture of herbs.

To do this, mix in equal proportions nettle, burnet root and shepherd's bag. Pour boiling water over the spoon and let the liquid stand for several hours. Drink this tea instead of the usual tea. If you do not like the taste, add honey or sugar to the liquid.

Do not ignore the monthly, which do not stop.

Bleeding can cause a sharp decrease in hemoglobin concentration. Be sure to consult your doctor, and in case of acute pain, call an ambulance. All traditional methods should be combined with medications that the doctor has prescribed.

Only an integrated approach will help get rid of bleeding in a short time.

The most common causes of sedative menstruation

Causes of brown daub instead of menstruation can be both pathological and physiological.

Normally, monthly smear, but do not start:

  • during pregnancy
  • in the premenopausal period,
  • within 1 year after menarche,
  • for 3 months after starting or canceling COC.

Pathological causes of disorders requiring urgent treatment:

  • inflammatory and infectious diseases of the genital organs,
  • hormonal disruptions
  • obesity,
  • endocrine system diseases.


The most common reason that menstruation is long smeared with brown, but does not start, is pregnancy. At an early stage, such secretions signal the implantation of an embryo. Normally, a similar brown daub in a pregnant woman should stop within 1–2 days.

If the monthly smear, and do not go for a long time, you need to contact the doctor. This is because such secretions may indicate hormonal disruptions or the onset of a miscarriage. Most often this happens when the woman’s body produces an insufficient amount of hormones necessary for the further development of the embryo.

Blood spotting may also occur due to improper location of the embryo, observed during ectopic pregnancy. In this case, the fetus begins to develop in the cervix or tube.

Ectopic pregnancy is a great danger, so if there is suspicion of it, an gynecologist urgently needs to appear. It is worth considering that such an anomaly in the initial periods may have the usual signs of pregnancy, but over time, the woman will feel a deterioration in the general condition, the appearance of pain in the lower abdomen.

It is very important to correctly evaluate the monthly during ectopic pregnancy, because the future health of the woman depends on it. To do this, we recommend reading a separate article on our website dedicated to this topic.

Hormonal disorders

The menstrual cycle is closely related to the hormonal background.

Hormonal failure can lead to the fact that before the expected date of the onset of menstruation, estrogen will be produced in an increased amount, and progesterone - in insufficient. It is with this imbalance that a brown daub appears.

Also, with a negative test, menstruation can smear, but not start in case of a low level of estrogen in the first phase of the cycle. Such a failure violates the function of the reproductive organs: the egg does not develop, which is why ovulation does not occur. At the same time, the endometrial layer in the uterus does not thicken, therefore, there is nothing to reject during the expected menstruation. As a result, instead of abundant secretions begin brown smearing.

Most often, the termination of such a daub coincides with the time when the menstruation should have ended. In some situations, the duration of this period may be extended by several days. As a rule, such a reaction of the body is observed once, and in the next cycle a woman begins to have full menstruation.

If for 2 weeks the monthly smear is brown, an urgent need to contact a gynecologist, as this may indicate a serious hormonal failure, which requires treatment.

It is impossible to conduct therapy independently, as incorrectly selected hormone-based drugs can lead to serious complications. If measures are not taken in time to solve the problem, the likelihood of recurrence of menstruating menstruation increases next month. It is better to contact the experts who will select the right drugs to normalize the cycle.

Inflammatory diseases

Another reason for the occurrence of sedative menstruation are inflammatory diseases affecting the organs of the reproductive system of women. The resulting inflammation disrupts their functions, which is why the nature of menstruation can change: daub appears without bleeding. In most cases, inflammatory processes in the organs of the reproductive system begin due to hypothermia.

The most common violation of the menstrual cycle is observed in patients with endometritis of the uterus. This pathology is characterized by inflammation of the uterine lining, a violation of most of the functions of this organ. With this ailment, menstruation can smear more than two weeks, and then never go.

The inflammatory process can occur on the background of ingestion of a sexually transmitted infection. Recognize its presence by the appearance of the following pathological symptoms:

  • pain in the lower abdomen,
  • burning when urinating,
  • the spread of itching in the intimate area,
  • the appearance of whitish, yellowish, greenish discharge with a bad smell,
  • discomfort during sexual intercourse.

If menstruation is anointed but not started, and the woman has detected any of the listed symptoms, she should immediately contact a gynecologist. Otherwise, the developed pathology will face serious complications that may result in infertility.

With the rapid gain of weight or with its excess, the function of the hypothalamus is disturbed. As a result, hormones change, menses begin to smudge, but they do not start. This process often leads to the complete disappearance of menstruation, loss of childbearing function.

It has been established that with a decrease in the excess body weight by 10–15%, the cycle begins to recover. In this case, first monthly smear brown, then the menstrual flow gradually become normal.

Reception and cancellation of COC

Superficial swelling may occur when taking contraceptive drugs. The change in the nature of menstruation is a normal reaction of the body to oral contraceptives. This is due to the fact that the main action of drugs is aimed at preventing ovulation by reducing the amount of estrogen produced. A reduced hormone level leads to the fact that the endometrial layer in the uterus does not develop, which is why menstruation is smeared with brown, and bleeding does not occur.

Such a reaction of the body is considered the norm, if heavy menstruation does not go more than 3 months in a row. At the same time bleeding can be observed throughout the cycle. If this phenomenon occurs longer than the specified period, you should consult with your doctor about the replacement of the drug.

Cancellation of COCs can also cause daubs. Termination of the drug leads to a gradual normalization of hormonal levels. The reproductive system is recovering slowly, so instead of menstruation bloody discharge may occur. Most often, at the initial stage of cancellation, COC smears for 3 days, and then menstruation gradually acquires a standard character.

Emotional experiences

The nervous system is involved in the production of hormones, regulating the function of the hypothalamus, so menstruation after stress may begin longer, manifesting brown daubs. It is proved that short-term stress provokes increased menstruation, and long-term - a decrease in the volume of discharge, the duration of critical days.

If under the influence of stress factors during the period of menstruation brown spotting began, the woman should try to cope with the nervous tension on her own or seek help from a specialist.

Constant stress causes a hormonal imbalance, which leads to the replacement of full-fledged monthly daubs, and then to its complete absence, a violation of genital function.

Brown daub instead of menstruation appears in women over the age of 40 years. At this time, many people have premenopause, during which normal menstruation is replaced by scanty secretions. After a while they disappear, and monthly stop.

Establishment of monthly

In girls of young age, when their period is just beginning, daub, which occurs instead of menstruation, is considered the norm. It arises due to the restructuring of hormonal levels. Most often, there is no ovulation in the cycle, which is why scanty discharge appears.

However, such monthly periods can be considered normal if they last no more than 1 year after menarche. If the brown daub is observed for a longer time, the girl needs to see a doctor, as this may signal the development of pathologies.

Tactics girls in this situation

If it smears, and there are no menstruations for a long time, you should immediately consult a doctor to diagnose the violation. Most often, the following techniques are used for this:

  • blood test,
  • conducting research on hCG
  • basal temperature measurement
  • Ultrasound of the pelvic organs,
  • MRI,
  • examination of the thyroid gland.

Depending on the accompanying symptoms, other diagnostic methods may be prescribed, in some cases, consultation of specialists of a different profile is necessary.

It is necessary to consult a doctor if menstruation is briefly smeared with brown, but the situation repeats every cycle.

In both cases, the gynecologist diagnoses the cause of the occurrence of such a violation, will prescribe the appropriate therapy, taking into account the factor causing the problem, as well as the individual characteristics of the girl's body. In order not to aggravate the condition, you must fully comply with all the recommendations of a specialist, do not self-medicate.

Woman's age

During puberty during adolescence, the monthly cycle is irregular and there may be disruptions in ovulation. That is why spotting is the norm within 1–2 years after menarche, and is not considered a deviation from the norm, since during this period the menstrual function occurs. If this period is delayed and the main discharge is observed more than two years after the beginning of the menarche, then this is a good reason to seek advice from a specialist.

In the period before menopause (age from forty years), daubing can also be observed, which indicates a decrease in the hormonal background in a woman and the natural extinction of the reproductive function of the reproductive system during menopause.

Ectopic pregnancy

An abnormal embryo location can lead to bloody brown secretions. Pathological pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg develops outside the uterus. For example, in the fallopian tube or neck. The pregnancy test in this case shows a positive result. Perhaps the gynecologist will give you an ultrasound to determine where the fertilized egg is attached.

Inflammatory and hormonal diseases

The cause of the failure of the menstrual cycle can be inflammatory diseases of the female reproductive organs. Inflammation can occur due to hypothermia.

Diseases that develop from hormonal changes affect the menstruation in the most direct way. The most famous and frequent of these diseases is polycystic ovary syndrome. This syndrome means the formation of numerous small cysts in the ovaries, which can lead to scanty menstrual periods, like a daub, or even menstruation.

Sexually transmitted diseases

If a woman led a promiscuous sex life and had unprotected sex, then hidden sexually transmitted infections can be the cause of the “daub”. Symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases:

  • lower abdominal pain, in the area of ​​appendages,
  • pain during urination,
  • itching and burning in the vagina,
  • foul-smelling discharge, painted in unnatural shades,
  • discomfort during intercourse.

Sexually transmitted diseases include gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis.

Hormonal contraceptives

When taking hormonal drugs in

women may experience decreased ovarian function or endometrial atrophy. This may cause smearing. Следует правильно подбирать контрацептивные средства и учитывать все противопоказания к их применению.The imbalance of estrogen and progesterone in the female body influences the nature of the discharge. If spotting is observed for three cycles or more, you should stop taking hormonal contraceptives or replace them with other ones that are most appropriate for your body.

The intrauterine device belongs to the same point. This method of protection against unwanted pregnancy has a specific side effect - menstruation can become scarce and have a light brown color.

Postpartum and lactation period

After childbirth and during breastfeeding, the woman's menstrual cycle is restored very slowly. Monthly may be absent during the entire period of lactation. There may be scant brown discharge, this is also a variant of the norm. Due to the peculiarities of the female body, the cycle can fully recover in a few months after giving birth and the menstruation will be the same as before pregnancy.

Any intrauterine surgery is the cause of the appearance of brown discharge instead of menstruation:

  • diagnostic curettage
  • removal of part of the uterus,
  • medical abortion
  • removal of fibroids,
  • removal of polyps
  • laparoscopy.

If symptoms occur during the postoperative period, such as an unpleasant odor, pain and increased body temperature, you should immediately consult a doctor to avoid possible complications.

External factors

We list the factors that may cause non-permanent or poor monthly:

  • stress and depression,
  • lack of sleep and insomnia
  • poor nutrition,
  • bad habits - smoking, alcohol,
  • acclimatization,
  • metabolic disease,
  • harmful working conditions.

These factors have a negative impact on women's health. Frequent walks in the fresh air and avoiding bad habits will help restore the body.

Diagnosis and treatment

The basis of the treatment of spotting is to identify and eliminate the causes of their appearance. Violation of the menstrual cycle is possible to correct a wholesome diet, rejection of bad habits, good rest. If the cycle is violated by various kinds of diseases, the doctor, after prescribing certain examinations, will identify the causes and prescribe the correct medical treatment.

Take care of yourself and your health. The well-being of your future children depends on your health.

Ointment instead of menstruation

Regular periods - one of the main signs of the normal work of the female body, as well as the psychological comfort of the beautiful half of humanity. But what to do when the cycle is lost, and instead of the monthly appear spotting spotting? Is this daubing considered monthly? We will answer these and other questions related to abnormal discharge during menstruation in the article.

What is monthly

Monthly allocations are given to the woman by nature for the favorable conception and bearing of the future little man. They must be cyclical and constant - this is the main indicator of women's health.

Each organism is individual, and the menstrual cycle is different for all women. On average, its frequency is 21-35 days, and bleeding is considered the norm from 3 to 7 days.

There are features of the body, when a few days before the alleged discharge begins daub brown. Then it develops at first into scanty menses, and then is restored to its normal state. This situation does not threaten anything - it is a simple reaction of the body to changes in the hormonal background of a woman.

But, if the menstruation does not come, and the brown smearing discharge continues, you should be alert and seek the advice of a specialist.

Consider the most common causes of such secretions.

Age group

The first thing you should pay attention to is the age of the representative of the female part of the world.

The very first menstrual periods — menarche — occur during the puberty of a teenager; on average, they are 11-16 years old. It is quite normal, if at this stage, when the young person’s monthly cycle is restored, there will be bloody discharges.

The recovery period takes up to two years, and the frequency between cycles can be up to six months. All this is considered normal. If this period is somewhat delayed, it is worth informing the gynecologist about this to prevent possible unpleasant consequences.

The second age group is women aged 40 to 55 years. It is at this time that women will fade the reproductive system.

Everything can begin with daubs plus additional symptoms:

  • Heavy sweating.
  • It may throw in the fever, especially the upper body: neck, face.
  • Mood swings.
  • Other.

All these are signs of an approaching menopause. During such a period, a woman should be especially attentive to her health and be under constant medical supervision.

"Wrong" pregnancy

The presence of daubs during pregnancy can provoke the wrong place of attachment of the ovum. This type of ectopic pregnancy:

  • Pipe,
  • Ovary.
  • The neck.
  • And abdominal pregnancy.

Having done a pregnancy test, it will be positive. Sometimes, the second strip may be faded. To establish an accurate diagnosis, the gynecologist will send an ultrasound scan for examination.

Period after childbirth and breastfeeding

Some time after giving birth to a woman, there are abundant periods - lochia. At first they are very strong, gradually profusion decreases and sometimes ends in smearing discharge.

Then the young mother's body needs time to restore the entire function of the reproductive system.

It even happens that during the whole period of feeding the periods never come and this is normal. And it happens that there is a daub. It all depends on the individuality of the body of the girl who gave birth.

Lactic discharge is normal after delivery. After the woman stops breastfeeding, her full-term periods should begin and the cycle should be restored.

Surgical intervention

Operational interventions can be the cause of brown dabs .. But when fever is added to them, the discharge has an unpleasant smell, plus burning, crotch pain - go to the doctor. This can be a complication after surgery.

Any type of female organ surgery:

  • Laparoscopy,
  • Abortion,
  • Scraping,
  • Removal of fibroids,
