Welcome to ehealthforum,
The brown discharge could be due to infection, use of medication, breakthrough bleeding, pregnancy, hormonal imbalances etc. The exact cause can only be made out after thorough evaluation and tests (as needed). Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance. Drink plenty of water. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. If you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Avoid having unprotected intercourse while both of you are on treatment course.
The bloating could be due to drug induced gastritis. Consider taking antacids for control. Keep diet simple and healthy. Do not leave stomach empty for more than 3 hours. Drink plenty of water.
Take care.
