Brown discharge after ovulation, is this normal ?

I have brown discharge that seems to constantly happen around 10 days after ovulation . Sometimes it lasts a few days, then goes away, sometimes it lasts until my period (I have 27 day cycles and ovulate on day 10 or 11). My husband and I are seeing a fertility specialist because we haven t been able to get pregnant for almost 2 years of trying. I have had my progesterone levels checked for the past few months, and the numbers indicate all is healthy and well. However, I ve always had a sneaky suspicion that the brown discharge could be contributing to my infertility . Any thoughts?

hi welcome to Healthcare Magic

Normal ovulation takes place on 14th day of cycle.. there is also some mucus secreted during that period.. yours discharege can also might be physiological.. as the other harmonal reports are normal , nothing much to worry.. to find the cause for infertility you needed to be clinically evaluated..

Menstrual flow often consists of several layers, which include old blood, endometrial lining, nutrients etc. All these layers are discharged together as menstrual flow. However, at times only a layer of nutrients may be discharged before the actual menstrual flow. This causes the brown discharge before period or few days after ovulation.
polps,oral contraceptive pills,implantation bleeding also cause brown bleeding.
Brown discharge before period rarely leads to complications.
t is important to stay healthy from inside. Proper diet, exercises, and drinking a lot of water can cleanse you from within, thus alleviating the possibility of any menstrual problems.
