Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about dark brown spotting and lower abdominal discomfort.

You have reached menopause because it has been 12 consecutive months without a period.

However, the dark brown discharge and lower abdominal uneasiness raises a question and poses a concern.

Were you ever diagnosed with uterine fibroids? If so, the discharge and uneasiness could be the result of a fibroid degenerating or breaking down.

If not, please consult your gynecologist, who may chose to have you schedule a pelvic exam.
