I had a colonoscopy and polyp removed 3days ago. I have had thick brown vaginal discharge since. Is this normal.

I had a colonoscopy and polyp removed 3days ago.  I have had thick brown vaginal discharge since. Is this normal.

Blood that remains in utero and passes to the vagina will decompose and appear as a brown discharge. One must examine the uterus by ultrasound to see what the endometrial lining is like. ...Read more

 I have brown vaginal discharge  for 3days now. Its already 1week after my menstration ended. It has no smell,no pain,no itch. Do i need to get worry?

Probably old blood: Brown equals old blood left over from your period. It is typical to have an "off" period every now and then. This usually corrects itself over the next few cycles. If it continues see your doctor to discuss cycle regulation. Birth control is very effective at regulating the cycle and preventing pregnancy. ...Read more
