Dr. Adam T. Newman answered:

Is having brown tissue- like discharge during period, and not pregnant, normal?

Yes

Tissue
As the tissue from your uterus sloughs off, a brown color is very common. If it persists beyond your period, talk to your OBGYN for a check up

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

I have tough, membraneous, tissue- like discharge during period. What is it? I am on the pill but started my pack a week late this month.

Uterine lining

Open-uri20121027-4248-frzb9t
Each month, the lining of your uterus which is made up of 'mebraneous material" grows in response to hormonal stimulation preparing for possible implantation/pregnancy. If no pregnancy occurs, this lining is shedded (because of drop in hormones (estrogen, progesterone) at end of cycle resulting in menstrual flow and thus you see the "membraneous tissue." Hope that makes sense. Have fun learning.

A lot of watery discharge during period is this normal?

Infection & hormones

Open-uri20130718-24848-16uxqxh
Some vaginal discharge can be normal. As you go through the month your hormones cause changes in the discharge. In some cases though discharge can be a sign of infection. Causes incluse yeast, bacterial vaginosis, and STDs. There are simple tests that can be done in the office to determine if this is normal or not.

Have brown/blood discharge during period, do I have a std?

At risk?

Std
The brown bleeding during your period is totally 100% normal.Are you at risk for an STD? I can't promise you don't have an STD, but I have no reason to think you DO based on this information.

Having slimy and stretchy vaginal discharge during period. Is this normal? (I'm 22). Thank you!

Maybe

Vaginal_discharge
It is hard to assess vaginal discharge when someone is on their menstrual cycle. You could compare what you're experiencing now to the menstrual cycles you have had in the past. If this is not normal for you then you can schedule a visit for a evaluation

Dr. Wendy Askew answered:

If I always have a brown discharge during "period" (no red) while taking birth control for many months, did birth control pill fail me?

No.

Condom
NO, it isn't a sign of 'failing', but. the birth control pills can definitely change the type, color, amount of bleeding that a woman has during her menses. sometimes the 'period' becomes very light (sometimes the pills will cause menses to stop, which is an effect of the progestin hormone in the pills, and the type and amount of estrogen), or can become discharge, as you described.

Is it normal for there to be pure blood during period? Usually there is a sticky discharge in the blood but we haven't seen any? Period was on time

Blood is blood

Blood
Blood is blood. It can have all different appearances depending on how old it is and how long it has been sitting in the vagina or uterus. There is really no need to analyze the appearance of blood.

Having really heavy clear discharge during period, is this normal? My period is not normal this month, Im having more clear discharge than blood.

Bacterial vaginosis?

Blood
The only way to really know would be to go in and get tested. Bacterial vaginosis is often worse during and after a period. This would be high on my list as a possible cause.
