I had my period 2 weeks ago, but now I have brown discharge, I haven't had sex in at least 3 months and I'm not on any medication.

I had my period 2 weeks ago, but now I have brown discharge, I haven't had sex in at least 3 months and I'm not on any medication.

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

The only way to know for sure is to be seen for a full history, exam, and appropriate testing. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I ended  my period 3 days ago it was very light colored and ranged from pink to orange in color.Now I have brown discharge & pain near rib. Normal?

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
