Dear *****ient, in this case the brown spotting during the period has several causes.
The first cause is due to hormonal alterations due to stress and anxiety that modify the female hormonal pattern by altering the type of bleeding during her period.
Another cause of can originate by hormonal alterations since with the years the feminine hormonal load diminishes.
Genital infections such as chlamydia can alter the mentrual cycle with this brown bleeding.
Alterations of the endometrium can also endometriosis are associated with this type of bleeding.
I consider that in your case it may be due to stress but you should have a gynecological examination to rule out these conditions, in addition to a hormonal profile.
