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.

Chance of STD's?: A doctor can check to see if there is a medical issue, if a woman has mild menstrual-related symptoms. Many women have some variation of mucus discharge, of periods, or a missed period on occasion. Some women feel normal after a few days, but others have bothersome symptoms and follow-up with a doctor. A urine pregnancy test is accurate if done correctly, after a missed period, or 3 wks after sex.
