Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having brown discharge after periods that lasts for weeks is nothing to worry.

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".

This brown discharge is not due to cyst rupture or cyst bleeding.

Watch your periods for 3 months & if the brown discharge persists,then you need to consult your gynecologist for the clinical examination to find out the root cause & then take the treatment.

A brown discharge is usually a blood discharge.Brown vaginal discharge usually occurs when the products of menstruation aren't completely cleared during a menstrual cycle. If the bleeding is quite slight then it takes longer to reach the outside world and turns from red or black to brown in the process.

So there is nothing to worry.

Please wait & watch your periods for next 3 months.Usually this brown discharge stops on its own.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

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.
