Common Questions and Answers about Brown vulva

My Gyn noticed some brown spots on my vulva which she sent away for a biopsy. She said the brown spots came back normal, however the pink skin surrounding it was slightly abnormal. She recommended that I come back every 6 months for observation. It's been 8 years and it has definitely spread, although some of it looks like it may have disappeared in areas. I haven't been to my Gyn in 1 1/2 years (have an appt. this Fri.) but I'm scared to death that it's some type of cancer now.
i was just wondering is it normal to have a mole on the vulva? specifically on the outer skin part of the inner labia skin fold. when the skin folds together it doesnt really show because its small. it is normal brown around 2.5-3mm (when stretched), flat, with round corners. i have been to the gyn and the dermatologist before for having a soap reaction rash on the vulva, but they have never brought it to my attention. so i was just wondering is it normal to have a small mole there.
I had 3 small raised moles (1 bigger than the other two) which were dark brown on my vulva but one has changed to a dark red colour. My last pap smear was clear I've been tested for warts and herpes (both negative) I'm a bit concern with the colour change in one of the moles. Do i see a gyno or a dermatologist for this issue and it is anything to be worried about?
Hi all, About two months ago I started experiencing vaginal and vulva itching. I went to a gynecologist who diagnosed me with a yeast infection. I took the meds and no improvement. Then I was put on antibiotics for the burning, which didn't help anything at all. The doc then told me to take three diflucan (for a yeast infection), thinking I had a severe case. It didn't help. Has anyone else had this chronic itching and burning?
i had another bacterial infection which was causing yellow/brown discharge and itching. treated me for that. i have had a full hysterectomy in the last 4 years. i'm 40 years old. i haven't notice any major symptoms on him. just some odor and watery fluid leaking from him when we had sex. i always burn after intercourse and most of the time get a severe bladder infection. pass blood in urine and pain and feel sick. if you go by the book, do you think he has infected me with something?

After a while, I went to the toilet again, and while doing so, I had some vaginal discharge. It was a brown lump surrounded by some blood and clear jelly like substance. I had visited the Gyn earlier in the week and had a full checkup, including an ultrasound, and he did not mention anything abnormal. He did perspective me Metro gel and I have been takin it twice a day. I have taken a round of Metro gel three months ago and this bloody discharge did not happen.

Hello, Pain in vulva is due to vulvodynia which can be due to many causes like persistent vaginal yeast infection, irritation to antifungal treatment , sensitivity or allergy to something touching the vulva, such as soap or bubble bath, a drop in the hormone oestrogen, causing dryness of the vulva, stress, lichen sclerosus or recurrent herpes simplex infection.

Precancerous changes of the vulva (vulvar dysplasia) may appear as white, red, or brown patches on the vulva, and are often accompanied by itching. The vulva can also develop skin cancers such as melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma." You don't get a "do over" if it is something serious, so make an appointment ASAP.
I used monstat and it cleared up. Then about two weeks later I found a bump kind of inside of my vulva. It went away then a week later I started having symptoms that appeared as if i had a bacterial infection. My vulva was REALLY inflamed and hard and it burned. I was in unbeareable pain and I could barely sleep or walk.
Hi there, Dark brown discharge and/or brown spotting are common side effects of morning after pills .This dark brown discharge/spotting or bleeding is usually seen within the first week of taking morning after pills. There are very little chances that you could be pregnant. Though it may happen as only one sperm is necessary to fertilize the ovum if it has reached your vagina.

There are two conditions that can cause excessive darkening like acanthosis nigrans and haemochromatosis.It causes dark brown areas of skin mostly under the arms, vulva etc.It may be associated with diabetes, obesity and PCOD etc.Haemochromatosis is caused due to altered iron metabolism. If you think that you have any of these conditions mentioned above it is best to consult a doctor. I do hope it helps. Take care and regards!
2 years ago i began to notice that my genital skin is MUCH darker than the rest of my body, i am quite fair and my skin there is a very dark brown. lately i have noticed that the skin on my vulva is flaking and the dead skin coming off is also a disturbing shade of brown. i have started waxing lately and wonder if this might be the reason. i am currently using aloe vera gel and vaseline alternatively but it doesn seem to be having any effect. there is no itching or discomfort.
My friend is visiting Croatia for a month. We noticed some brown spots on her vulva before she left. Now she has seen a doctor there who wants fears it may be melanoma. They are scheduling a biopsy and may want to remove the spots. She fears they don't have the expertise as in America. It seems that Melanosis and Melanoma are very similar looking? What is the treatment for Melanosis? Does it go away on it's own? Is it easily misdiagnosed?
I was only 3 weeks pregnant and it started with brown discarge. After two weeks it turned red and was told that I was misscarrying baby. Well it has been 6 weeks and spotting has gone back to a brown color. I have misscarried before and it was not like this, so when is it gonna end?????
At some point I started getting a period every other month. The issue is, I don't bleed fresh blood (brown or extremely dark in color with a lot of shedding), and when I do "bleed" I tend to get extremely irritated and itchy around my vulva. I do not have any type of rash, yet I'm itching and I can feel the discomfort. I guess my question would be does anyone have an explanation to why the itching occurs, why the blood is brown/dark and why this only happens every other month?
