Welcome to ehealthforum,
The brown discharge that you describe could be suggestive of vaginal infection, cervical erosion/dysplasia, expulsion of old blood from uterus due to contraction resultant from orgasm, internal injury, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the symptoms. Treatment as needed (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid masturbation/introduction of foreign objects in vagina, as these can be the cause for the infection. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
