Yellow brown spotting

Brown spotting during menstrual flow is fairly common among women – brown spotting at any time of menstrual cycle is most often associated with old blood and old endometrial tissues. In general, brown spotting is commonly a result of the long menstrual period – the long period means that the blood has become oxidized thereby causing the change in color. When you notice yellow brown spotting, it means old blood was mixed with infection and bacterial inflammation.

Brown spotting sometimes could be a symptom of pregnancy (early sign of pregnancy) or a symptom of Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases (PID) or a symptom of hormonal disturbances during menopause or a sign of cervical cancer and even sometimes a side effect of other medical conditions.
