brown discharge
I have had brown discharge for the past two days and I finished my period four days ago. I really don't know if it is normal or what it means. I tried looking it up online but I am getting confused. It talks about maybe I am pregnant, but I don't think so. My highest ovulation is around the 26th to 27th of each month. My husband and I had intercourse just last night and That was the first time in about two weeks. I have not used a toy or anything for a while and I don't know what the brown discharge is or if it is normal. Is there anyway you can clarify it for me and break it down into lamens terms?
Sincerely,

B.A.

It might just be old blood from your period, I wouldn't worry about it.

I am experiencing brown discharge also, and I had a baby 2 months ago.  The discharge was red, then yellowish brown, and then brown.  Now I am finally starting my period for the first time since I had my child, and the brown discharge is finally disappering.  I am going to the doctors on the 7th, and if I find out anything, I can let you know what the doctor says.

me and my boyfriend have been having sex for about 5 months but just start wearing condoms about 3 weeks ago(there might have been 1 or 2 times we didnt). all my periods are usually heavy and consist of brown discharge towards the end of my period. i just got my period 2 days ago after being late maybe a week, it started out kind of spotty and soon became very heavy and brown. its been an entire 2 days since ive had it and its still very brown, is this normal?

I am experiencing this as well. My Boyfriend and I had sex with a condom and he pulled out before he came. ever since then i have had the itching and brown discharge. Im thinking it might have triggered older tissue, or a slight reaction to the condom.

I am experiencing this now, and I'm nervous. You could have an old, forgotten tampon in your cervix area. It should work its way back down and out eventually. Horrifyingly enough, I once discovered this accident six days after my period. I had been spotting a deep brown colored blood for days. Stay calm and check it out. Undetected, you can become very ill with Toxic Shock Syndrome. Good luck!

hi I have been reading and i have experienced the same things. i went from a regular 28 days cycle to the light pink to brownish period. it was also accompanied by that whitish discharge. Now it has been two moths since my last period. i have taken a pregnancy test but its negative. i went to the doc and he prescribed Progyluton.   he said it will help regulate me cycle but what bothers me is how can it move from regular to being so unpredictable?

i am hoping the medication will work

I'm having the same problem...pinky to brownish spotting after i had period 5 days ago,been reading up on it and people saying its probably blood left from period but i have had it before now,and i have read it could be ovulation but its not as i have taken an ovulation test and it says negative so wha could it be as i feel quite sick,anything and everything makes me very emotional,and my virgina is very dry and sore basically doesn't feel right.

It could be birth control pills if u take them or any form of birth control. 9 times out of 10 if ur vagina isn't itching its probably irritated.. most infections accompany a discharge or a smell so if u don't have any of that, it could be nothing. But always consult a Dr. Even if u call just to ask. Its probably nothing though because I have the weirdest vagina ever!!!
