Brown smelly vaginal discharge

What could be the reason for brown smelly vaginal discharge ? Brown discharge during menstrual flow is fairly common among women. Brown discharge at any time of menstrual cycle is most often associated with old endometrial tissues. In general, brown discharge is commonly a result of the long menstrual period – the long period means that the blood has become oxidized thereby causing the change in color.

Brown discharge sometimes could be a symptom of pregnancy, Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases (PID), menopause, cervical cancer and some other medical conditions.

Brown smelly discharge is a signal of shedding of the uterine lining (“old shedding”) happened because of some vaginal and uterine infections including sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
