thank you for your query.

it is very common in women who have irregular periods to have brown discharge.
Brown discharge is typically thought to be a mixture of old menstrual blood and tissue ejected from the uterus. It can preclude a period, arrive after or show up between periods,and is known as spotting.

most common causes include-

mostly there are some additional symptoms along with spotting such as-pain, having discharge that is watery or yellowish or white, frequent urination, vaginal dryness, depression, loss of appetite, burning and itching.

the treatment includes-
1.healthy diet.lots of fibre and water
2.excluding alcohol and caffeine helps
3.exercise and relaxation techniques such as yoga,tai chi etc
4.OCPs and other medications should be only taken as last resort.

its a common problem which can be cured easily and hence yes you can concieve kids.

thank you,
wishing you good health
