Question: brown vaginal discharge?? help!

 Nanu123 - Mon Feb 25, 2008 7:25 pm

Im nineteen years old and for the past three days i have had brown vaginal discharge. I finished my period two weeks ago so i really doubt that its left over blood from my last period. It is also too soon to have my next period. Im away at college and i havent had sex for three months. I've only had one partner for the past 5 years which is my boyfriend. neither of us have had any other partners so im positive it cant be an STD. Please help i have no idea what this could be.

User avatar Hello,
This is definitely within the normal range for women. Most have this type of discharge at times. It is old blood that for some reason was trapped and wasn't evacuated with your last period. Most likely this will not be ongoing.

Best wishes.
