Dark brown discharge after period

I honestly have no idea whats going on. I have a normal period every month, when i have sex i always use a condom, but after my period theres thisdark brown discharge. It usually last about 5 days and then it just goes away but than comes right back after my next period. its been happening for the last three months and i dont know how to fix it. Im only 18 and this is kinda freaking me out. Any idea?

Its just your body flusing out after your period, or some people call it "stale" or old blood.  I really dont think you should worry, all women have different types of discharge at different times.  Everyones "normals" are different!

Hi,I'm 22 and i'm having the same problem! Dark brown pasty discharge with smell its been a little less than 2weeks. Its not itchy but it smells.When it started I had pain, period pain. Before the discharge started I had just finished my period 10days ago so I'm really confused on what it could be cuz this is the first time it happens. About 2months ago I had an abortion I should mention! I'm reading a bunch of things on the internet its starting to scare me a little and I also dnt know what to think :s I also should mention that I did have sex with my boyfriend of 2 years unprotected but he didn't come inside me and that was after my period, a couple of days after I had pain and starting with the dark brown and smelly discharge! Please help me I'm really scared.
