Brief Answer:

Brown discharge and weight gain

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Brown discharge can be confused with spotting/ bleeding. Wet mount microscopy can be done to confirm the true nature of the discharge.

If there is an infectious cause then it can be treated promptly. If there is bleeding then further workup would be required. The weight gain is most likely unrelated to the discharge.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
