thanks for the query.

Your symptoms of missed periods with spotting per vagina suggest that you are pregnant and may be going for miscarriage.
I recommend you to get a urine pregnancy test.
If it is positive then get an ultrasound to more sure of your pregnancy and its complications.
A small sub chorionic hemorrhage can cause spotting . But it regresses on its own.
50% of women with 1st trimester bleed continue with their pregnancy and deliver a healthy healthy baby. So dont worry. Take adequate rest.

Hi there ~

I am glad you are asking this question. Brown spotting is not normal. You might have been pregnant and miscarried. It is better to confirm your pregnancy by doing a urine pregnancy test and then if it is positive, it is good to consult a qualified gynecologist, who might want to do a complete pelvic examination as well as some imaging including ultrasound examination. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a nice day !

Welcome to HCM,

When you take progesterone suppositories, it may not follow your usual period. It may also cause scanty blood flow during cycles, and brown discharge. So i would say all these symptoms could be due to progesterone Suppositories. Though if you have any doubt, you can do pregnancy test also. For any bleeding irregularity in a woman of reproductive age group, rule of thumb is to rule out pregnancy.
I hope I have answered your question. Best wishes!
