Dear customer

Thank you for the quick reply.

The symptoms you have described of having of brown bleeding/spotting when you wipe without any itching or foul odor is normal.There is nothing to concern.

When the products of menstruation aren't completely cleared during a menstrual cycle, this results in brown periods/discharge.This particular color indicates "old blood".As there is no itching or foul smell,it is not due to any infection.

So bottom line is that this brown bleeding is not of any concern.Nothing to worry.This is normal.

Hope this helped.
