Im glad you mentioned that you just came off your period... Thats most likely what its from. Just old blood escaping. No worries I have it sometimes too. If it lasts an abnormally long time (like more than a few weeks) you may want to get it checked out by your doctor.

I was going to say the same thing. Since the blood from your peirod can well get old it turns stale and brown looking. It will be thicker than just discharge tho, if it's brown and runny, well I might still go see a doc.

I'm having the same thing and am wondering how long it usually lasts? Or how long it lasted for you? At what point should I be worried? 2 weeks?
