Hi there. Board-certified obgyn here.

Do you happen to know if your mother has had a hysterectomy before?

No she didn't

Brown discharge means old blood. The fact that it's just discharge (and not, say, a steady flow of blood) indicates that it's a very tiny volume of blood. It's most likely that the blood is coming from the bladder (and not the uterus). I think it's time to talk to your doc - I would want to make sure that the UTI was adequately treated. If she's still having painful urination and possibly blood in her urine, I'd want to see if her urine still had an infection in it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
