Thank you for providing that information.

Anytime there is discharge that's brownish we perform a pap smear and take a small tissue sample during the pap of the endometrial lining of the uterus.

Do you have a doctor that you can see to have that done?

If you don't have a doctor then one option would be to contact your insurance and see if there is a qualified gynecologist who can do the pap for you. The procedure is quite easy and most often it may not be anything at all. But it's a worthwhile test to do to be sure.
