Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Brown gel like substance is the old blood which might have come out due to rough sex or some kind of injury. There is nothing to worry. just wait for it to stop on its own. If it continues for more than 4-5 days then you need to consult your doctor.

welcome to healthcaremagic
Brown discharge is blood that has lost its hemoglobin, which indicates that it is old. It also indicates that it was scant in amount because fresh bleeding will make its way down the vagina in its bright red state in moderate or large amounts.

Normal spotting is what may occur at the very end of your bleeding days. This is also known as post-menstrual spotting. In this case you are just "cleaning out" your uterus/vagina. This may be caused from the uterus not completely shedding the products of menstruation, minor vaginal/cervical trauma during intercourse, hormonal imbalances.

If new symptoms arise or this symptom recurrs next month you should consult your gynecologist.
