Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum and thanks for writing

Brownish vaginal discharge can be due to various reasons as ovulation time which is normal,possible pregnancy if unprotected contact was performed , hormonal imbalance, stress, anxiety, abrasion,injury,infection if associated with odour,underlying cause as cervicitis etc. It requires a proper history and detailed examination to comment regarding the exact cause of discharge.

If the discharge increases in amount and is persistent consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation so that the exact cause can be ruled out and treatment started accordingly.

Take care!
