Get examined ASAP: This could be pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), usually due to gonorrhea or chlamydia, but the tests aren't perfect and some PID cases are not due to STD.

No matter the exact cause, this is a potentially serious problem. Get professionally examined ASAP.

I delivered a still born just over one month ago, I am now getting thick sticky brown discharge is this normal?

Common, but check: Common is not exactly normal. It may not be a problem, but it is worth an exam to verify and relieve your worry. Going through a stillbirth is a stressful thing and reassurance can't hurt. Also, if there is a problem, getting attention is the thing! Have an OBGYN exam to be sure.
