Re: discharge

Brownish is normally old blood that wasn't previously expelled. How long has it been since your last period?

Re: discharge

geneperson1945: Go to your doctor and have him examine you. Brown discharge at your age is NOT normal. Get it checked and be safe.

Re: discharge

You could have NOTHING...seems many women your age have this brown spotting occassionally, but I was reading that some of them that experience this brown spotting have uterine polyps (benign). Either way you have to go to a Dr and have them examine you.
I would suspect that if during your adulthood you maintained normal Drs appts and pap smears...you are fine..If you did not have regular pap smears....all the more reason to have this checked out.
