Brown discharge. Period prob?

I’ve had my period for three years, but this week was different. At the end of my period, I started getting brownish discharge on and off. What’s going on?


Hey girlie, that brownish discharge could be a couple of different things, none of which you should worry about. What could be happening is that your body is getting rid of old endometrial tissues, which line the uterus, to make room for newer tissues. This cleaning process is perfectly normal and makes sure that your uterus is ready for future periods.  Another possible reason for the brownish discharge is just old blood that’s ready to come out. Just because it’s changed from a red to brownish color doesn’t mean you should be scared.


Brownish discharge is quite common, but if it starts to have a strong odor, you should go see your doctor to make sure everything’s OK.  Use your instincts, and if you think something’s up, go get it checked out. Remember-it’s better safe than sorry.
