Should I worry about brown discharge?
Posted on: 07/01/2008
Hi, i've read a majority of the claims below about brown discharge, but i don't relate to any of them. I am 18, never been sexually active, take CLA tonalins and drink green tea, and exercise daily. I had my period a week ago and since then i've had a continuous brown discharge. i hope you can help since my parents aren't the type of people to take me to a doctor about this sort of thing. Thanks!
Since you have not had any sexual contact, I vote that you do not worry, but keep track of the days you have it, and if it seems to be continuing, or cyclical, talk to your doctor during your next physical.
