I got a female friend who's 15 and she's having brown breast discharge, what would that be?
Note: Also she says here period is late but last time we talked in depth they weren't so regular anyway

And still the beds are burning, burning in our sleep.
Take me away from everything I see.

Discharge from the nipples can be caused by a number of different things, and most of them aren't serious, but it would still be a very good idea for her to talk to her doctor. He/she would be in the best position to determine the cause of the discharge.

As for the late period, there are several possible causes: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?. Too, it's not unusual for teenagers to have irregular periods when they first start out. It often takes the body some time to adjust.

Hope this helps!
