This answer was rated:

im having some brown blood when i wipe and there are some clots in it and i was wondering what it could be i have irregular periods and i have been to the doctor for it but its hormonal problems but i just wanted to know if the brown spotting could mean i might be pregnant because ive read in other sites that it could be implantation bleeding

Greetings.

The brown blood is considered old blood which remained in the uterus or cervix for some time, while the red blood denotes fresh bleeding. With your history of irregular periods, this can be nothing of concern and seems to be part of your irregular period. Implantation bleeding is quite different (in amount and color) than the irregular period bleeding. See this link for implantation bleeding under the head, slight bleeding or cramping;
