Cervical irritation: It is likely irritation to your cervix caused by intercourse. For now I would just keep an eye on it but if it persists daily then you should consider seeing your care provider. ...Read more

See your GYN!: You need an exam - at the minimum an infection needs to be ruled out and an evaluation for a recto-vaginal fistula is warranted with the "brown" description. Be seen! ...Read more

Brown liquid: You should see your physician asap especially if the liquid smells like stool. Otherwise, you'd need to be checked out for any possible infection or area with old blood still there. ...Read more

I have dark brown liquid coming out of my vagina and my period was suppose to be 3 days ago, what can that be? Can it be pregnancy symptom?

I have dark brown liquid coming out of my vagina and my period was suppose to be 3 days ago, what can that be? Can it be pregnancy symptom?

Pregnancy test?: It's always a good idea to take a pregnancy test if you have had sex and your period isn't normal. If the test is negative (and if your last sex was more than 14 days ago), then you can feel safe. Sometimes periods are irregular for no good reason. Sometimes it's stress, illness, medications, travel, or weight changes. If it only happens occasionally, then i wouldn't worry. ...Read more

I skipped my period. Im sexually active. I've had terrible pain, like cramps. Now thick, brown liquid is coming out of my vagina. What is it?!

I skipped my period. Im sexually active. I've had terrible pain, like cramps. Now thick, brown liquid is coming out of my vagina. What is it?!

See your GYN ASAP!: The brown discharge is old blood mixed with mucus. Its concerning that you missed your period and now are having some bleeding and terrible pain. You really need to be seen by a Gyn physician. These can be signs of a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or infection (among other things) and warrant evaluation in person ASAP. Best wishes! ...Read more

I've been diagnosed with hydrosalpinx.I had clear brown liquid come out my vagina today.Is it draining?Can it hurt me.Do i need to go back to the doct

Maybe: It's possible. It's hard to answer the 2nd part of your question, because i'm not certain what you and doctor decided to do about hydrosalpinx. I'm assuming that you aren't trying to conceive and that you have no pain from it? If it's draining, it won't hurt you at all. Good luck. ...Read more
