What does a lot of brown discharge mean right before your period?

Brown discharge is a sign of several things: pregnancy, menopause, vulvovaginitis, STD’s, or Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)! Any Suggestions here?

    Cysts cause most people to stop having periods, and sometimes ovulate altogether! It just depends on how many there are and how big they are!

Easy peasy :)
