Not necessarily: In the normal state of things menstrual fluid will find it's way out. I don't think it wise to put a forceful steam of water into the vagina. Let nature "do its thing". The brown discharge is most likely old menstrual blood. Also at your age I hope that you are seeing your family physician or your OB/GYN periodically for routine PAP smears. ...Read more

Possibilities: Blood could be from one of the kidneys, a renal pelvis, a ureter(less common),the bladder or the prostate. For anyone to guess without test results would be meaningless. Most likely your first test will be a CT-IVP with contrast. Good luck to get good news soon. ...Read more

Can microscopic blood in urine form a pink ring around around the urine stain once the urine dries?
