Brown discharge during ovulation is quite normal around the time of ovulation. In several women, this sign can be more helpful than tracking small changes in their body temperature. This type of change in the vaginal fluid pattern will help a woman in knowing when she might be most receptive in getting pregnant. In case you are experiencing any other symptoms such as unusually frequent urination, burning during urination, itching, foul smelling discharge etc, you may want to consult your gynecologist and report your symptoms. These could be a symptom of some type of an infection or in extremely rare cases, brown discharge could indicate something more serious such as cancer.
What Causes A Brown Color Vaginal Discharge During The Ovulation Period?
During ovulation, the follicle that surrounds and protects the egg, tends to mature and grow. Eventually these will rupture and this can result in a small amount of bleeding. When the blood gets older, it gradually turns from a deep red color to brown. These brown fragments are older bits of blood which is seen in the form of a brownish secretion around ovulation. This entire process is controlled by the body’s hormones. When the estrogen level rises after menstruation, it causes a hormone called ‘Luteinizing hormone’ (LH) to rise as well. Whenever this happens, it gives a signal to a woman’s body to let the egg release from the egg follicles. This results in ovulation. Along with the release of the egg, a slight bloody discharge is noticed.
