For the last couple days I've had a brown discharge, what I assume to be blood(?). It's not to heavy, but enough to need pantyliners. There's no odour but it is quite thick. It has been 2 weeks since my last period and should be another 2 1/2 til the next. I'm not sexually active nor do I take contraceptives etc....Is there anything I can do or should I wait it out and see if it goes??

Any help appreciated

Ana

  • My instincts would tell me that is not normal and should not be "waited out". Go see you gyno.

  • Sounds like normal spotting....but it if continues for more than a few cycles I would get it checked out in case you have a cyst or pollop....

  • I have had this in the past. I have read in a book that this is normal spotting around ovulation. But if you are not comfortable with this, talk to your doc, he will probly make sure everything is ok

  • I have had abnormal vaginal bleeding for several months. The doctor prescribed me birth control and told me that would solve the problem. That was about 5 months ago. It didn't help. I am on my period for about 3 weeks each month. I have brown discharge as well and I have a lot of pain on my right lower side at all times. I also don't have energy and don't have much of an appetite. Recently my vagina has been dry, burning and itching.Can any body offer any advice? Thanks.mfox

  • Brown discharge tends to be old uterine lining being sloughed off. It can be common around ovulation. Give it a couple days and see if it stops. If it turns bright red or you start to have other symptoms (abdominal pain) then go asap to your doctor or ER.

  • My last period was in Dec last year and I have taken a couple of pregnancy tests since then which both came up negative but as my periods have never been regular (sometimes gap of 2-3 months between each one) I wasn't that worried. However for last 2 weeks I have had a dark brown discharge (not heavy enough for tampon) and today I have experienced some sharp pains in the right side of my stomach. I don't want to go to the doctor unless I really have to as I will just get the usual lecture about being overweight and needing to slim down. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

I missed a few pills and was told that the spotting was completely normal for a month or two until my cycle returned to normal. Eventually the spotting slowed, but for two more months I had brown discharge every time I had sex. Extremely frustrating! It was my partner that pushed me to go to the doctor - and I am glad i did.It turns out that I had a tampon that had been lost! i don't know how that is even possible, though i had recently switched to the tiny ones that apparently can go missing. In any case I was obviously horrified at the OBGYN. I wanted to get the word out on the forums because in all my reading I had not yet come across this as a possible cause.Good luck ladies!
