I am going to assume based on the information provided that you are not sexually active. If you are experiencing black/brown discharge accompanied with bad smell, it can indicate vaginal infections. Smelly discharge usually indicates a problem in reproductive system of a woman, and this could be due to the following causes: 

  • You have just started taking a new supplement
  • You have started using new laundry soap
  • You're eating too much of spicy foods
  • You are sensitive to latex condoms, pads, and tampons
  • You have human papillomavirus
  • You have missed your birth control pills or hormonal pills
  • You are under too much stress lately
  • You have cervical polyps or fibroids with infection 

I would recommend seeing a medical professional to find out exactly what is the issue before taking action.
