Doctor

A:   Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting us about your health care.
I can understand your concern here.
Brown color discharge during periods can be due to hormonal imbalance, infection, fibroid and PCOS.
It is usually a old blood.
You can wait for your next menses.
If your next menses is also dark brown in color consult a Gynecologist and get yourself examined and ultrasound scan done to rule out the cause.

Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more.
Regards
