I am discharging dark brown gel matter. Should I be concerned?
Hi--how old are you and how long has this been going on? Any itching or pain? When was your last episode of unprotected sex?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I'm 40 years old. No itching, no pain. It has been a few weeks since my husband and I had sex.

OK--when was your last period and have you ever had this happen before?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It has been years since my last period. I am on depot prevara, and have been for the past 9 years. This has never happened before.

OK--most likely this is just a yeast infection and you can try either Monistat or Lamisil for it but if it continues after that you might need oral prescription Diflucan. That said, if you haven't had a pelvic exam and a PAP smear within the past year you'll need that too
