Brown discharge after heavy cycle and intercourse

Hello I m a 40 yr old female and I don t have any medical history issues with my cycle. I usually come on between every 25-28 days just this month I came on 4/11- 4/14 my period was very heavy and clotting I stayed on for 4 days and started spotting brown after I went off...well I noticed last Tuesday I was still discharging brown and to thus day is still discharging. My husband and I were intimate and I noticed after we finished and I went to restroom and I was still discharging, not sure why I m discharging dark brown.....I m really concerned this has never happened before...please help if you can!!

Brownish discharge means some old blood is coming out of your vagina which might have remained inside after your period was over.There is nothing to worry. It will go off in a few days. Sometimes such irregular discharge is seen in the perimenopausal age group.

Hi! For the last few months my menstrual cycle has been totally irregular (even 45 days between periods), and my periods lasted for 14-20 days. The period though is very light, mostly dark brown discharge mixed with blood in some days, and it comes with no symptoms whatsoever. It s very stressful because one year ago I usually had heavy periods with terrible pains and breast swelling, and now...just nothing. I took 4 pregnancy tests and all came up negative. Also in the last months I noticed that I bleed (also with few clots)after orgasm. I searched my problem on the internet and I found that it might be a cervical erosion, but the causes that determine this do not match my case, as I never took any contraceptive pill and I am not pregnant. Why is this happening?
