See your OB: What has been monitored on U/S is your fetus's growth and that has been good. Now you report a vaginal d/c. Yr placenta does not stay still but actually moves a bit and may have migrated slightly to over yr cervical os. Yr OB can see on U/S and monitor it. ...Read more

Possibly normal: I am uncertain if you mean that the spotting occurs before or during your menses. If the brown discharge is occurring during your menses, it may represent old blood. If you have brown discharge 4 days before your menses, a very common cause is bacterial overgrowth, called bacterial vaginosis (BV). Other symptoms of BV are itching, discomfort, and foul odor. ...Read more

I had baby in july of last year got period in august had unprotected sex with my boyfriend in november bye bye period now getting brown discharge?

Test: If you were having unprotected intercourse you need to check a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative and your period still hasn't started. The discharge could be your period starting and it could be delayed due to any number of things including the stress of the holidays but pregnancy is also a possibility. Good luck. ...Read more

I had pink brown discharge 14 days after my period, could it be implatation as me and my husband are traying for a baby?

I had pink brown discharge 14 days after my period, could it be implatation as me and my husband are traying for a baby?

Possibly: While this is possible, a pink brownish discharge is not unique to "implantation bleeding", which may also be attributed to local trauma (e.g. Post-intercourse), infection, hormonal, etc. Obtaining a home pregnancy test at time of your expected menses would help determine if your are pregnant or not. ...Read more

I have a 6mos old baby & last month, I had a brown discharge a week after my period. Now today, according to my period tracker, I'm already 4days late?

Test: In the weeks and months following delivery, the menstrual cycle can be irregular. Especially if a woman is breast-feeding. If you think you could be pregnant take a home pregnancy test. If you don't want to be pregnant make sure you're using adequate birth-control. Otherwise some irregularity in the first year after birth is normal for one's menstrual cycle. ...Read more

So this is my second month on the pill, my fiancé & I are having sex. I've been having brown discharge, is this normal? I'm not ready for a baby.

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill.. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

I am 2 months postpartum with my first child. I have had my first period end 2 weeks ago. I have started having brown discharge. What is the cause?

I am 2 months postpartum with my first child. I have had my first period end 2 weeks ago. I have started having brown discharge. What is the cause?

Old Blood: Brown discharge is very often caused by old blood either from the uterus, cervix, or upper vagina and should not be too concerning, especially since you are 2 months postpartum. It could be old blood from the pregnancy as well as older blood just from the last month or two of menstrual cycles. The brown discharge should not last very long and I wouldn't be too concerned at this point. ...Read more

Pinkish brown discharge day after rough sex... No condom. We used baby oil as lubricant also. What could this be?

Could be irritation: Of the vagina or cervix, or other, baby oil not recommended, astroglide or replens moisterizer much better, your gyn can do an exam and determine the cause and rough sex often can cause problems, sex sholdl be enjoyable without making it rough, because next time something worse may happen like a vaginal tear or laceration or other and I have seen that before and had to take the pt to surgery. ...Read more

Is it normal to have a brown discharge from vagina after bowel moment? I'm 28 and this is almost common for me after my 3rd child is this bad?

Possible fistula?: If you had a vaginal delivery it is possible that if you suffered any tear during the process you may had developed a small connection between your rectum and vagina, which is called fistula. Having these symptoms is very suggestive of this. The only way to find out for sure is to have an evaluation with your gyn provider. If this is the issue it can be surgically repaired. ...Read more
