Dark Brown odorless discharge?

I HAD MY PERIOD 21 DAYS AGO. USUALLY IT IS HEAVY AND LASTS FOR EXACTLY 6 DAYS. ALWAYS. ALSO, I DON'T HAVE A PERIOD BUT ABOUT EVERY 5-6 WEEKS, UNLIKE MOST WOMEN THAT HAVE IT EVERY 4. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THAT WAY. WELL, THE LAST TWO DAYS I HAVE BEEN DISCHARGING A VERY DARK BROWN IN COLOR AND IT IS AT TIMES WATERY AND AT TIMES VERY THICK WITH CLUMPS. THERE IS NO ODOR TO IT. NO ITCHING. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL EXCEPT THE DISCHARGE. I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE. OH, ALSO, THE STUFF STILL COMES OUT EVEN WHEN I AM USING A TAMPON. I HAVE NO PAIN. MY HUSBAND AND I DO NOT USE PROTECTION DURING SEX. HOWEVER, I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM ABLE TO GET PREGNANT. I HAVE HAD SEX FOR 10 YEARS NOW AND NEVER GOTTEN PREGNANT AND WASN'T ALWAYS USING CONDOMS AS I WAS IN A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP AND WAS NOT AFRAID TO GET PREGNANT. I AM ALSO NOT ON BIRTH CONTROL, NEVER REALLY HAVE BEEN. IT'S LIKE I DON'T NEED IT BECAUSE I REALLY JUST FIGURED IF I WAS GOING TO GET PREGNANT I WOULD HAVE BY NOW. BUT, NOW I AM WORRIED THAT MYABE I DID GET PREGNANT OR MAYBE IT IS A MISCARRIAGE (BUT I THOUGHT THAT WOULD CAUSE PAIN WHICH I AM NOT HAVING). SO, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK ABOUT THIS. ANY ADVICE? PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

hello,

its most likely just dry blood. some women experience this after their period and also anytime in between. the uterus is probably just allowing it to come out. but if you are still worried go in and get checked by a doctor. they will know better what it is. and i know it sounds gross... but take some in with you so they can see for themselves what your seeing.

hope everythings ok =)

Hello.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Brown colour discharge indicates an old blood coming out which was there in your uterus at the time of your periods. Still to be sure, get a pregnancy test done with your urine sample and if it is negative, then do not worry and wait for it to stop on its own.
