Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.
If you don't have an infection, then this could be a sign of a kidney stone with the brownish color being old blood. You need to see your doctor to do an ultrasound or CT scan to rule this out. Hope this helps.

I wanted to mention I have been trying to conceive is it possible the brown shedding is a result of a chemical pregnancy that does not get fertilized. Because the brown shedding only occur during menstruation and this has been going on every month.

That would not be very likely. You would have to take a pregnancy test to see if you were pregnant. If it was positive, then it may be a possibility. But if you are having your period, you would not be pregnant
