Question Asked:

"dear doc I'm 30+ and currently on the iucd for a year and four months now but I recently (3months) noticed more discharge slightly brown immediately after menstruation for like a week and it reduces as ovulation approaches. it makes my panties wet the smell is not terribly offensive.once the heavy passes the smell is just regular. is this something to be worried about? I used a metronidazole +miconazole pessary though I didn't finish the seven day course treatment because my period arrived in between, I didn't quite observe any difference. "

    Hello. It just might be nothing to worry about. Such brown discharge that is seen immediately after the menses is normal for some women and with no difference noticed after the miconazole/metronidazole treatment, it goes to prove that it really is not an infection nor anything you should worry about. Take care now and compliments of the season.
