Menopause

After menopause

Question:

Is it normal to have brown discharge after menopause ?

Answer:

It is generally not normal to have a brown vaginal discharge after menopause. Brown may indicate a small amount of blood that has come out so slowly that it has turned brown before it gets to the outside.  I would recommend a careful examination to determine the source of the discharge.
