Probably normal: In this situation, collection of spotting within the vagina just prior to and after menses may stay in the vagina long enough to oxidize and turn brown. Watery discharge is a little unusual however, so keep vigilant for signs of vaginal infection as listed.

There is brown watery smelly discharge after my period what is it?

There is brown watery smelly discharge after my period what is it?

Culture: That is likely a bacterial mixture. I advise you to get it cultured. It is likely there because u r vitamin D3 deficient. You will need enough vitamin D3 treatment to get to a level of 50-66 (not just 30). That usually requires about 5, 000 units a day for 1year & then 5, 000 u a day 5 days a week from then on. BUT 1st get your culture and D3 level checked. HRS, MD, FACC

Perhaps old blood: If there is no fever, odd odors and if the discharge is rather small in amount then this is likely this is just old menstrual blood that you are passing. This happens from time to time. Sometimes after ovulation women also have minor discharge and since your about midway during your cycle it might be that. If this continues then you could see your physician for a history and physical.

Breakthrough: This sounds like breakthrough bleeding, and I'm sorry you're going through this. Breakthrough bleeding can be common and this brown discharge is just old blood. Nothing to worry about, nothing with your body is necessarily wrong. If bothers you, can consider taking birth control pills to help regulate cycle. But otherwise, this is likely not to occur regularly. If it does, see a gynecolgoist.
