Hello,

Brownish vaginal discharge may be due to the following:
1) In most cases, brown discharge before or after your period is completely normal and is not a cause for alarm
2) Early pregnancy
3) Birth control implant like intrauterine contraceptive device
4) Pelvic inflammatory disease
5) Sexually transmitted infections
6) Polycystic ovarian syndrome
7) Endometriosis
8) Ectopic pregnancy
9) Cervical cancer

My suggestions are:
1) Take a home pregnancy test
2) If you are not pregnant, please continue your medications for PCOS
3) Exercise daily 30 min at least 5 days a week
4) Eat nutritious diet and don't miss follow up with your gynecologist

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Pallavi M., Anesthesiologist
