Women-perimenopause!: You are most likely still in peri-menopause. This can be a several month issue, or nearly a year long issue. Irrespective, you are young for menopause. Younger females entering menopause are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease if not given hrt (estrogens). You need tests for fsh and estradiol. Women need to consider the fact of early osteoporosis. If not on hrt, you need something! ...Read more

Many possible causes: Generally, a light brown vaginal discharge without any other symptoms can be associated with spotting from the uterus. A small amount of blood may reach the vagina through the cervix. Over time, this blood can combine with vaginal secretions and turn brown producing a brown discharge. If persistent or accompanied by other symptoms it needs to be evaluated clinically. ...Read more

Hey I Just Had My Period About A Week Ago, After I Had My Period I Had Sex. After a Few Days Now I Have Brown Discharge Is Not Alot, what could it be?

Several things: A discharge occuring a few days after sex could be due to an infection or abnormal cervical cells. At midcycle it could be due to the hormonal changes that accompany ovulation. The only way to know for sure is to be seen for a full history, exam, and appropriate testing. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Not unusual,: The brownish discharge is small, bits of old blood...The rib pain is likely unrelated to menses...I would take a menstrual diary (recording pain and bleeding patterns over the next 2-3 cycles) if the pain continues, talk to your obgyn about it. ...Read more
