Customer Question

I'm 36, have 2 children(4 and 6).
My period ended over 2 weeks ago abruptly(only a 3 day cycle versus a typical 6 day) with no slow down brown discharge.... now(2 weeks later) I still have breast tenderness and as I ran yesterday(and this morning)I have a little brown(looks like old blood) discharge-minimal but still concerned-been happening for 2 days now.

This is Dr. David

thanks for requesting me.

old brown discharge can be from some of the uterine lining which didn't come out completely during your period

you could be ovulating around this time

hormone changes can cause breast tenderness.

I bet your next period will be more regular

hard exercise, running can cause your periods to be shorter than usual

keep up the running and exercise as this is good for you.

let me know if you have other questions.
