What does brown vaginal discharge after a miscarriage mean?

I had a miscarriage 5 weeks ago, I was only 4 weeks and 5 days pregnant so I found out early, I found out when I was 4 weeks pregnant. I was due for my period yesterday but never got it, today I have this light brown discharge and this was the sign I got last time when I found out I was pregnant. What does this mean?

It’s quite common after a miscarriage.
You can consult a gynecologist and get an ultrasound scan done to rule out any retained tissues. Sometimes you may require a dilation and curettage.

Hope I have answered your query.

1 month ago i had misscarriage. Baby was 23 weeks. I was experiencing a greenish viginal discharge without any smell for 10 days. My HVS culture report result was normal flora only. No pethogens islolated after 48 hr incubation at 37c . Misacrriage was spontaneous expelsion due to prelabour pains and no D&C was required even after miscarriage. Only medicine was givin for RPOCs and after using medicine my ultrasound scan was clear after the expelsion of remaining blood clots.. Now I am again experiencing a greenish viginal discharge without any smell. And again my HVS culture report result says normal flora only. No pethogens islolated after 48 hr incubation at 37c . What does it means?

Hi, I have been on the contraceptive pill for the last couple months, in the last month I forgot a pill an I had sexual intercourse. I later started producing a brown substance in small amounts but it started getting heavier. It then Started to become more like a period for a day or so and I went to the bathroom later on at night as It felt very heavy. When I looked down I had produced a large clot tissue looking thing that was white and red but it wasn t like blood? It was also fairly solid. The only thing I can think of is a miscarriage? Is this what an early miscarriage is like?
