What’s Up With Brown Discharge?


So lately I didn’t have my period this month and had it last month on the 27 and today I had brownish discharge, I’m just wondering what is brown discharge?, what does it do to your body?, is it bad for me?


Gemmah Says

Discharge with a brownish tinge is absolutely normal & not bad!

Discharge comes in a variety of colours & textures. How much & how often we get it, can vary from girl to girl. Brown or reddish coloured discharge will usually pop up right before, during or just after your period. It’s caused when a little bit of menstrual blood mixes with your normal discharge.

Similar to your usual discharge, it’s purpose is to expel cells & mucus in order to keep your downstairs healthy. So it’s definitely not bad for your body!
