Thanks for writing in.
The light brownish discharge could be either your period or a threatened/incomplete abortion
. I would suggest that for starters, we repeat a Urine pregnancy
test and do a beta hCG level. This will conclusively help us rule out a pregnancy ( A normal/ectopic and a molar pregnancy would be ruled out). Once we have ruled out pregnancy, I would want you to do an ultrasound
of the pelvic region so that we can have a look at the uterus and the ovaries and rule out conditions like polycystic ovarian disease
( which are known to cause irregular periods
Stress can lead to a few irregular cycles but it is unlikely that it is totally responsible for your symptoms.
In all probability, there is some kind of hormonal disturbance which is causing your symptoms. Please see a physician and get the requisite tests done.
Hope this helps.
