Hi

Brown vaginal discharge usually occurs when the products of menstruation aren't completely cleared during a menstrual cycle.So the products of menstruation were not completely out & now this had lead to brown discharge.This particular brown color indicates "old blood".It doesn't seem to be due to an infection.You have no symptom of any infection.Its only the old blood. If you are having any discomfort then then see your doctor.

Hope my answer had helped

Yes,as i have described above that brown vaginal discharge usually occurs when the products of menstruation aren't completely cleared during a menstrual cycle.So as your period overs,but the products of menstruation weren't completely cleared,so there is brown vaginal discharge.

Hope this helped.
