Hard to tell...: Are you having blood in your urine or vaginal blood? If you cannot tell the difference then go to see your doctor for a urine test to rule out blood in urine. In your age group work up will start to rule out a urinary tract infection if the blood is from urine. Vaginal bleeding can be spotting as well which can happen even if you have already had your period. ...Read more

What do brown period blood for months mean? First started after having gallbladder removed recently. Have IUD for 4 years never happen before.

What do brown period blood for months mean? First started after having gallbladder removed recently. Have IUD for 4 years never happen before.

Old blood: coming out of vagina. The timing is probably coincidental. The brown blood is likely just old blood that is now leaving your body. Likely this will pass with time.
