Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I got my period on Sunday, and it was a little bit of blood. It's Tuesday, and it hasn't happened again. I just have brown stuff in my pads. What is brown discharge? Oh, and what is chafing?

Dear Monica,

"Brown stuff" is a menstrual discharge with blood that has lost its oxygen and is a normal menstrual flow. You are just fine. Chafing is when you are experiencing rubbing from something that creates an irritation. It can be from your thighs rubbing together, or a piece of clothing that rubs against you, etc

 

Hope this explains you questions for you,

Your BeingGirl Experts

Lovinsummer868, I would wear panty liners if you have discharge to keep you feeling fresh. You can get them scented if you want too. Don't do it for your period though, only if you have a light flow. Hope this helped! :)

@sweetcandy13: totally normal! every girl gets discharge before and after the have their period. You'll probably get discharge until you reach menopause. Hope I helped:)
