I have been have a brown discharge with little dark brown blood clots everyday since me last period 2 weeks ago. A couple times it was mixed with light pink discharge. I am also cramping a little and leaking a little white-ish clear fluid from my left breast when squeezed. Feeling nauseous a lot as well. I am 26 and have had my tubes tied. This is very embarrassing when interacting with my partner for the brown fluid gets on the bed. I have to wear panty liners all day due to it is destroying my underwear. My doctor said she has no clue what it is and ordered a pelvic transvag ultrasound. I am very worried. Do you have any clue what it might be? I also am not taking any meds at all .

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The brown vaginal bleeding/discharge that you describe could be indicative of possibility of ovulation bleeding (if occurred around midcycle time), old oxidized blood (if you have had missed periods), hormonal changes, infections (if associated with foul smell), endometritis, ovarian cysts, use of any medications, cervical erosion or dysplastic changes, uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, etc. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the irregular periods and the dark brown discharge that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the irregular periods and the brown discharge that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the abnormal discharge and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
