I'm 8 weeks late. Urine test and blood test all turned up negative. Recently, I had a little bit of brown discharge coming out. What could it be?

8 weeks late: Hard to tell what the brown discharge is. If pregnancy has effectively been ruled out, it may be that you are having so called anovulation bleeding - bleeding that occurs from the overgrowth of the lining of the uterus (endometrium). It is frequently uncontrolled and may last days or even weeks. I'd go to the doc and have a full history and physical exam to begin with. ...Read more

29y/o F had hysterectomy 2.5 yrs ago, having bloody and brown discharge, pelvic pain the past two weeks. Went to dr, swab test neg. What is it?

When you say: "swab test" do you mean Pap? Do you know what type of hysterectomy you got? Was it "supracervical" ie was the cervix spared? Still have ovaries? If you still have a cervix & ovaries, you may also have a teeny bit of uterus capable of making an endometrium. Vaginal fissures or cervical changes deeper than the swab can reach are also possible. Consider transvaginal ultrasound for further info. ...Read more
