Old blood: What happened to your fibroids? If no surgery, likely still there to some degree which can cause irregular/abnormal cramping and spotting. The brown discharge is very likely old blood from your uterus/cervix/upper vagina and not that uncommon. May want to consider recheck with your gyn doctor to check status of fibroids and discuss other possible therapies.

Could be: Hormonal, an enlarged uterine lining, or from endometriosis. However, even small fibroids can cause a large amount of bleeding.
