Brown Discharge Explained

Most women will experience Brown Discharge at some point in their life and it can be seen at different stages of the menstrual cycle. Brown discharge before a period is usually old blood from the uterus but sometimes can be a sign of Progesterone Deficiency, Benign Polyps And Uterine Fibroids. Brown discharge during ovulation is quite normal and can help with tracking ovulation. During ovulation the follicle that surrounds and protects the egg tends to mature and grow. Eventually this will rupture and this can result in a small amount of bleeding. When the blood gets old it gradually turns from a deep red colour to brown. These brown fragments are what is seen in the form of a brownish secretion around ovulation. Brown Discharge instead of a period can be caused by Hormonal Imbalances, Implantation Bleeding, Birth Control, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), Menopause Or Perimenopause and in some cases Serious Diseases such as cervical cancer, chlamydia, gonorrhea or syphilis. Brown discharge after a period is a fairly common occurrence and is experienced by a lot of women. But sometimes this can be due to Hormonal Fluctuations, Repeated Yeast Infections, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), Bacterial Vaginosis, Damage to a Reproductive Organ or Cervical Cancer. Always keep an eye on any prolonged changes in the consistency and colour of vaginal discharge and periods. Early detection is the best way to resolve any serious conditions. Diet Change, Exercise, Nutritional Supplements, Mizan Therapy, Hijama and Fertility Massage can all help in preventing brown discharge and some of the serious conditions mentioned.
