Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Brownish colored blood following sex could be due to an injury or due to an existing infection. You need to get a PV examination done to find out the exact cause.
If there has been consistent bleeding, a detailed evaluation needs to be done. It could be due to a hormonal imbalance and the FSH, LH, and thyroid profile can be done. If required your Gynecologist can ask you to get an ultrasound done too.
Tab. Tranexamic Acid can be taken to control the bleeding. It can be taken twice daily. But PV is mandatory to find out the diagnosis.
