Brown discharge mid cycle

Does anyone know if it is normal to have reddish brown discharge (maybe old blood mixed with discharge?) during ovulation? I am mid-cycle right now and had a very small amount of this today and it has me worried.

Re: Brown discharge mid cycle

I wouldn't worry unless it continues. Do you get regular checkups and pap smears?

I do. MY last pap was September '05 but I've had lots of internal exams since then because I was pregnant and miscarried. I recently had a bunch of cultures done also (testing due to miscarriage) and they found and treated me for bacterial vaginosis. At first I thought that maybe the treatment didn't work. However, brown discharge is not a symptom of BV so I don't think that's what this is.

Re: Brown discharge mid cycle

I'm going to jump in here because this happened to me this morning. Well lets start with yesterday, I was having more discharge than normal. Then this morning, woke up, went to bathroom and wiped myself and to my surprise there was this sort of thick reddish/brown discharge. I have no idea what it is. And from what I remember this has happened before. I've just recently had my annual and everything came back normal. I also did have treatment for BV and a UTI but that was a few months ago. My periods have also changed lately to being very light to last month not having it at all. Very weird but I'm just assuming everthing is fine since I just saw my doctor.

Debbie -- Are you at a point in your cycle where it could be implantation bleeding?

No. I'm at cycle day 12 and had sex only 2 days before so that couldn't be it.

Re: Brown discharge mid cycle

Because your close to the middle of your cycle, it might possibly be some ovulation spotting.
Sometimes when a woman ovulates it can cause a little bit of blood to escape and cause some spotting.

Re: Brown discharge mid cycle

Hi, I had this same problem (and currently am as well) When I had it the first time I went to my doctor did all the testing - came out all negative. If you're on the pill and are taking it to late (like i always forget to do) it can screw up your cycle and cause some break through bleeding even though it's brown in color it just takes longer to come out so it's brown.. it generally will dry up and stop.. and you'll end up getting your normal period as scheduled. (if its the same thing.) I have yet to figure out how to stop it faster... taking BC pills on time after it starts doesn't seem to help

Hope that helps.
