BV? Trich? Other?: Any new or abnormal vaginal discharge should be professionally examined. Discharge with odor usually is caused by bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of bacteria. Usually not serious, but other STDs are more common in women with BV. The STD trichomonas often causes brown discharge w/ odor. The time of day you notice it doesn't make any difference. See your doctor and take it from there. Good luck!

Brown d/c bad smell: hello ~ you dont give very precise dates here so its impossible to form a time line but if you are between 4-6 weeks you could repeat pregnancy test to see if fetus still viable. After 6 weeks there is a fetal heart beat so an ultra sound will tell you if the pregnancy is still viable. I think you should see an OB GYN in case this is significant..thanks
