Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Little bit of irregularity in periods can occur due to many causes.
Usually, menstrual cycle with length of 21 days to 35 days and menstrual flow for 3 to 7 days should be considered as normal only.
Brown color of the flow usually indicates collected blood in the uterus.
As all urine pregnancy test kits gave negative results the possibility of pregnancy is less.
Decreased menstrual flow, watery flow, tiredness, muscle aches, constipation etc symptoms can be seen in conditions like anemia, thyroid hormonal imbalance etc.
So, please consult your doctor and get evaluated.
By clinical examination and investigations like ultrasound, complete blood picture, thyroid profile, blood sugar levels etc, the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated.

Take care
