It could just be leftover discharge from your period...but usually brown discharge and odor are a sign of some type of vaginal infection or STD. I would defenitely book an appt with your doctor! Good luck :)

Q: Hello, my daughter starter her period when she was 9. I have always been concerned. I started my period at 10 so it was not to big of a SHOCK. She is 11 now and is getting used to her period, it has always been very heavy and comes often. I have taken her to the doctors in the past and had blood work and got her and ultra sound and everything was fine. She went to Disneyland and started her period. when she came home she smelled very strong of refried beans (weird I know) , not fishy at all. She took 2 showers but odor is still there. She is more tired then normal and the smell is still very baddddd . It's been 4 days now . Should I take her to her doctor???????? Thanks, Sincerly very worried mommy
A: Im guessing that this isnt something to be really worried about. Odor can vary from person to person with levels of hormones in her body when she does get her period. She is 11, and there is a lot od changes happening in her body, and this could be why. I would take her to the doctor to make sure everything is ok anyways. Hope this helps.
Q: I have been on seasonique for exactly 1 week. My doctor told me to start on a sunday right after my period if it stoped during the week or take it on sunday even if i still had my period. So i did. But since being on it my period has stopped yeah. but for the last week i have had a strange discharge with minor odor. its not spotting its almost like very light brown water substance. Does anyone know what this is. Is it my body just regulating it self or something. I have been on bc before just not in years and i dont remember this ever happening. I just think what bothers me the most is the odor. its not strong or infection like smelling its just an odd smell.
Q: About a week after my period I started having brown discharge. Sometimes it looks like a light blood flow, but later returns to a darker brown color. It seems to get worse after intercourse with my husband. After intercourse it also looks more like blood- more of a brownish red. Looks like end of the period blood. At the end of the day , like I said , goes back to darker brown. I am not in pain, no cramping, no itching and no discomfort. I have never had anything like this before in my 33 years ( also having 2 children). Please give me a clue what this could be- I am worried! Thank you, worried
Q: Okay I am 19 and have had a period for about five years now. I usually always have slight brown discharge before my period starts and after it goes off. Only once have I had a straight brown period. My period is irregular and has been since I got it. But usually it lasts about 6-8 days including the brown discharge. This month (december 2010) my period started on the 6th with the brown discharge. It got heavier as normal but then it never turned red. I wasn't worried since I am irregular and I've had a brown period before. So it was going off and getting lighter. Then last thursday, the 16th it started getting heavier again. It's still on now, the 20th. It's not as heavy as a regular red period flow. It's like large clumps of brown. I have no idea why and no on google has had the answer for me. Please help. Thanks.
Q: i ended my period like a the other day ago and i have this like light brown poop looking discharge comeing out my vagina when i whip my self and i wanna know what it is if its old blood or if its something else i should worry about but i only get it around when i have or end my periods
A: It's not really something to concern yourself with. There's no reason to be afraid to speak to your mom. I'm sure she's had the same thing happen to her and will be able to give you better advice and support than anyone else will. Brown discharge frequently will come after or before a female starts/ends her period. It's old blood that the body is expelling. If you've ever seen old blood, it turns a rusty brown colour. That's all this is. On the other hand, if you're having unprotected sex it can mean a whole host of other problems. For example, depending on if you have other symptoms, it could mean pregnancy or infection/STD's. If you're not sexually active though, this can all be ignored. Talk to your mom and she will know best of what to do.
A: it has to be old blood because i get that to when i had my period so that's has to be that but every 1has a problem with that at least it's normal but when i was pg i had that stuff happen to me but that was me have you asked a doctor yet?If you go see the doctor ask him if its that let me now k>
Q: Hello,I have a concern. The last day of my cycle was the 15th of May. On the 17th of May, it seemed like my period came back and I had to use pads all day. From the 18th to today (23rd) I have had continuous brown discharge. I am very concerned. Does anyone have any idea what is going on with me? Sorry to be so graphic...
A: Hi, I actually have a similar concern but it's not me it's my girlfriend who not only has this brown discharge acelter her period but her period comes every other week and I bet it's not normal at all, however, she is in her third month of taking anti-contraceptive pills. Please I ask anyone who can have some type of info to post it so that I may at least know that it's not something serious.
A: have you called your doctor? You might have some kind of infection. could it be a part of your period? I take it, it's not the usual pattern of your menstrual cycle, otherwise, you would not be posting. However, i know when my period ends, the last few days it becomes a brown discharge. If it's brown...it means it's old blood. Do you have any odor or other symptoms?
Q: First off, I know this isn't just spotting. At first I thought it was because I forgot to take my birth control pill until around 1pm (when I usually take it around 9am or 10am) for a couple of days. After doing this for a couple days I my discharge got darker and it just looked like spotting.. it was that same consistency and everything. I didn't see any color yesterday. Then today I just went to go pee and my actual discharge was brown. Like pure brown, like not a deep brown or a reddish brown. Discharge is pretty normal for me... but this was really weird. There is an odor but I don't really know how I would describe it. Also, I am sexually active. I tried just googling this first to see what I came up with.. but I'm still confused and worried. Please help :/
Q: For about a year or so I've noticed after my 5 day menstral cycle, I have brown discharge and sometimes dark brown blood with long blood clots that smell. I feel as if my period lasts for 2 weeks before I don't see anything far as discharge or blood or clots or sign of a period. I only have 2 weeks out of a month when myy vagina is actually clean and free from odor, blood, and blood clots. What does this mean? Most times I don't have cramps, I get those every blue moon and most times they are not bad cramps, but then sometimes I get them and their horrible maybe 6 times out of a year. In have been writing on my calendar and I realize this has been happening over one year, what moust I do? What is the problem. I do fel slight cramping right now, I should have been off my period about 3 days ago.

Q: Hello, Im having a certain kind of discharge and I want to make sure it's not something I should be worried about, since mid October my discharge has been a white and a pale/light yellow color when dry, it has a odor to it but its NOT a fishy odor, I want to say it smells like ive been sweating allday, it DOES NOT itch or anything uncomfortable like that. I must say that the day of or one or two days after my period ends, me and my boyfriend had sex and I remember smelling a odor that made me think I was still on my period but I wasn't! it just smelled like it and that has never happened before , it happened one more time after that and it was when I was just coming off my period by the day of or a day or two. Im very sensitive to a lot of things by the way but I just want to make sure there is nothing seriously wrong. PLEASE HELP
A: Hi there. I would see your doctor. They take a quick culture and look at it under the microscope and tell you what it is. That is your best bet at this point. good luck
