Brown discharge/no period
Posted on: 10/23/2007
hi im 15 and i have still not had my first period but today i have experienced a dark brown vaginal discharge. what is it and what should i do?
Maybe this is your period starting. Use a sanitary pad, record the dates you have the discharge, and then wait. In around 28 days, if it happens again, you will know it is your period. No worries!
That answer assumes you are not sexually active, by the way, and if you are, then I would encourage you to see your doctor and make sure it is not a sexually transmitted infection.
