hi. i had been taking aleese for a few months then i switched over to Lutera and i have been using it for about 2 or 3 months now. i usually start my period on the 25th day in my cycle. i have recently been freaking out because since the 6th of november (9 days before im supposed to start my period), i had a really dark brown discharge and it had been getting heavier until the 9th and then it became a little watery, still a darker shade of brown but with a more crimson color. my boyfriend and i had been hot and heavy quite a bit this past month and i have not been able to find a direct answer to what i want to know....what is this from? i have been stressing out a lot and crying for many reasons this past month. is the dark brown spotting normal?...what could it be?
