Thanks for posting your query.
Having an irregular brownish discharge after fitting the coil is a common finding. It takes some time for the uterus to get adjusted to the coil. Usually the brownish discharge stops in 3-4 weeks. The initial periods may be prolonged but the total amount of bleeding reduces considerably.
You can wait for a week more and see if the discharge stops spontaneously. In case it persists, then you need to consult your gynecologist to rule out any vaginal infections.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
