However i find its increasing in volume. I am nervous about it as i am still planning for pregnancy and im scared if this something abnormal. Please let me know what i should do. I AM CONFUSED AND TENSED ABOUT THIS. PLEASE HELP ME
If you are planning for a baby then you must get this brown discharge investigated. One possibility of a brown discharge is pregnancy. A dark discharge from vagina can be due to a foreign body (like a condom or tempon left behind) or due to cervical cancer or dysplasia, fibroids in uterus, endometriosis, or due to a STD or fungal infection. It can also be the side effect of a hormonal contraceptive. You will need pregnancy test, ultrasound, STD panel and PAP smear for confirmed diagnosis. You will need to consult a gynecologist for this. Take care!
