On the 27th of july i spotted only once in the morning but i have been having period pains from the 23rd july and like i said my period is not supose to start before 4th Aug

Today i started bleeding a bit (more than just spotting) and then it just stoped, now every time i urinate it is like a brown color in the toilette and this is worying me i have never seen my urine like this it is not red like blood in it, it is brown lite brown not like muddy water brown and i am worrying about this and my period that starts and stops just like that.

I am on Deparoc 20mg and Tegretol, I have been put on this by my pshycologist and on it for almost a month if it is any help

Hallo Mimie
I don't think it is something to be worried about, the brownish colour is just very slight bleeding that comes out very slowly. You probably have slight hormonal fluctuations caused by the starting of Deparoc. It will probably normalize by next month.
