Brown discharge during Menopause

Patient: I am age 56 I haven’t had my period in 5 years, this morning I had a slimy bown string like discharge from my vagina, I have no bleeding or pain. Is there any concerns I should have?

 

 

Symptoms: Vaginal brown discharge

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Since there is no bleeding and just slimy discharge for the first time , it could be v aginitis. Maintain feminine hygiene and also drink plenty of water. See a gynecologist in case the discharge increases. Feminine wash containing lactic acid will helo restore the pH and reduce such symptoms.Hope this helped.Regards
