Post BTL ?'s: With "tied tubes" the risk of pregnancy is very low, however it is possible. Usually brown discharge can be from cervical inflammation. See your gyn physician for an exam, as this is easily diagnosed and treated. Your gyn physician may also verify this with a serum HCG test, which is very accurate for pregnancy.
