      You asked:

    Are brown discharges normal?

     
     
     
      Nana answer:    
     

    A brownish colour can often be due to a light bleed discolouring the discharges. It’s nothing to worry about. Discharges can also start to smell stronger when they’ve been in contact with the air for a while, that is, if you haven’t recently changed your underwear or pantyliner. If the discharges start to smell unpleasant or you have them in combination with itching, you should contact a doctor.

      You asked:

    I’m 10 years old. My discharges are black like old blood. What’s happening?

     
     
     
      Nana answer:    
     

    Congratulations! You’ve probably just had your first period. I assume you’ve spoken to your mother or another adult who can help you with sanitary towels.

      You asked:

    Why do discharges smell bad?

     
     
     
      Nana answer:    
     

    A normal discharge has no smell when it leaves your body. But as soon as it comes into contact with oxygen, it can start to smell. The smell can also differ at different times during the menstrual cycle. You can stay fresh by showering and changing your underwear or pantyliner every day. You should also let your genital region breathe, so sleeping without panties is a good idea. You should wash your genital region with warm water once a day, and when you have your period, you can wash it twice a day. You should use a soap designed for personal hygiene – good ones are available from the pharmacy. If your discharges start to smell bad, you should see a doctor because you might have an infection. Find out more about unpleasant smelling discharges in the article entitled “Itching and strange smells.”
