Strange discharge before period
I had a dark red / brownish discharge this month about 5 days before my period started. One day was almost like normal period, and the other days just a few spots on panty liner. One day nothing and the next day my period started as normal. What can this be? I've read a few questions/answers about implantation bleeding - what are implantatin bleeding? We are trying to get pregnant and I'm a bit worried.

This sounds more like premenstrual spotting. This is fairly common and results from different parts of the womb lining coming down at different times.
