Thank you for your question on

Brown discharge between periods suggests a possible infection. It may also be associated with a change in odor as well. It could be continuous or intermittent. Please find out from your partner if he had suffered from any infection in the past and what, if any, treatment was taken.

Your condition requires immediate examination by a gynecologist and treatment if the infection is confirmed on examination. So, please consult your gynecologist for the opinion. Thank you.
