I've been having brown discharge after my periods. It's only happened with two periods though.It kinda looks like blood but it isn't and i havent had any sexual activities either. Does anybody know why this is. If you do plz tell me. [Eek!]

That's normal after periods.

Basically, that's just your vagina doing its job per cleaning itself out: often there is residual menses laying around that your discharges "wash" out, so for plenty of women, for a couple days after menstruation, discharges are a bit -- or even a lot -- brown.

I'm not sure what you're saying here per when it "should" have happened.

Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. You're also still really young, so it's likely your cycles are still settling in, making it tough to make predictions about them.
