Spør oss / Besvarte spørsmål Brown stains in my pants, can it be the period? Hi, I don’t know if this question is very strange or not. It isn’t so much about the Bible, but about the period. I’m a Christian girl of thirteen, soon fourteen. Yesterday I noticed some brown stains in my pants. It looked a bit like poo, I don’t feel anything unusual, but this is the second day and there are still a lot of stains. Either I’ve got a weird disease, diarrhoea, or it’s something to do with the period. The staining comes from my vagina, not my bum. Do you know what this is? Should I phone my doctor? I’m going to talk to my mum, but I don’t think she knows so much about it, and I don’t know if I dare to ask her. If I just knew what it was it would have been easier to talk to her about it. I also have some pain around my bladder. From me. Hi, and thanks for your question! No questions are strange on this website. :-) You don’t say whether your period has started or not. However, if it comes from the opening of the vagina then it’s probably your period. Some women find that their period is a little brown at the start and finish of the menstrual cycle, this is not dangerous and you don’t need to contact your doctor. If you’re worried, we recommend that you talk to your school nurse. It would be smart to talk to your mum too, as a woman she also has periods, so she probably knows more than you think. :-) Here are some articles about the period that you can read: Help!
