Older and spotting

Hello there,
This is my first post here at WebMD, so still learning. Here is my issue. Several years ago, I had surgery to remove a Terratoma tumor. I have had many before for the same thing. This last tumor resulted in only a small portion of my last ovary still in. The Dr was not sure if my periods would continue or not. I had one period the following month....then none at all. As I said, this was several years ago. My husband and I have now started hiking in the mountains. Nothing overly strenous. Now, for several days after a hike, I am having a really nasty discharge. It looks like old dark blood. There is no pain, and it stops after a few days. It starts again after the next hike. Its not enough that I have to wear a pad or anything, but it is alarming. Any idea where this is coming from or why? I am not taking any hormone suppliments or anything.....just concerned. Thanks!

Might represent an infection or something more serious.

Be sure and see your GYN. Always be on the safe side and remember it may be nothing serious.
