Doctor :   Hello dear, Thanks for trusting us about your health care. I can understand your concern here. Brown color discharg e 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
