Many possibilities: There are multiple possibilities associated with a brown discharge most of which cannot be diagnosed by a Pap smear. The most common reasons in your age group are associated with ovulatory abnormalities and infections. The specific cause can usually be identified with a thorough history and physical examination including testing for specific infections. You need to make an appointment with your gynecologist.
