Brown losses: what are they and what is their purpose?

Have you ever had brown losses? Causes, dangers... Here is what it means.

From puberty onwards, vaginal secretions can be surprising. What are these white, yellowish discharges from our vagina? While this often transparent or white discharge keeps our vagina in balance and maintains the health of our vaginal flora, this discharge can sometimes change colour. And each colour has its own interpretation.

What does brown losses mean?

The presence of brown loss can sometimes cause concern. However, brown discharge is very common and can be explained by several causes. In general, brown discharge is the residue of oxidised blood in the uterus that drains from the vagina. This can occur during menstruation, after menstruation, during ovulation or during pregnancy. In these cases, there is no reason to worry. It is simply a case of old blood that has difficulty in flowing or a hormonal cause linked to ovulation or pregnancy.
There are other causes of brown discharge, such as a change of contraception, a forgotten contraceptive pill, a tumour, a uterine abnormality, an IUD or a forgotten tampon.

Brown discharge: when should you be concerned?

If you experience brown discharge over a period of several days and it is accompanied by pain, burning, itching and a foul odour, it is advisable to consult a specialist. This may be due to an infection, a sexually transmitted disease or a polyp, for example.
