CHECK WITH A DERMATOLOGIST.

Not usually: Most vaginal cysts are benign and were present at birth. They rarely cause any symptoms, unless they get very large.

I keep having dark brown vaginal discharge is there an explanation for it? It's been going on for a few weeks.

Brown discharge: Period blood varies from bright red, to dark, to brown. There's iron in blood cells, and when it oxidizes, or rusts, it changes color. At start of period it's red, then brown. During perimenopause, periods start brown then red then brown again.
Since you don't mention meds or sexual activity, can't say. May need to be checked if after ur next period it continues. Good Luck ...Read more

My vaginal discharge was turning orange as it dried. Now it turns a dark grayish brown?

Orange isn't a typical color for discharge either, so you may want to see your family doctor or gynecologist to get checked out and make sure health of vagina is good. BV is common and is typically not a STD, but rather an overgrowth of normal bacteria of the vagina. Best of luck! ...Read more

Had dark brown vaginal bleeding for 5 days now bright red bleeding for 7 and hasn't stopped?

Lengthy menses: A 'normal' period typically lasts 3-9 days. However, one can continue longer under otherwise unconcerning conditions.
