Can breakthrough bleeding be heavier than spotting?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 8 months ago.

Hello.

Thank you for requesting me.

Yes it can.

It depends on the hormonal balance. Or imbalance.

I shouldn't be worried it could be something else?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Something else... I get this white brown discharge at the end of my period. It's a really light brown and doesn't smell like anything bad. What could it be? It's not like old blood because it is much lighter than that
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 8 months ago.

Infection is one possibility.

But no way to tell without exam.
