Brown discharge - freaking out
Posted on: 12/07/2007
Okay, hi, i'm 16 and have sex with one person, but i've had sex with two partners, both virgins though. I'm on birth control (Lenessa) and i'm suppose to get my period in a week and four days. I've been having this brown discharge coming out of me for three days now. My boyfriend and i were suppose to have sex the first night i got it. but, obviously didn't because of it. i'll describe it: It's brown,(darker brown chunky stuff, and lighter clear brown stuff), it kind of has an odor but you can't really smell it unless you're an inch away, and well... it's quite red around my labia... i think that's what it's called?? i'm not too educated with this. also i have lower back pain, i feel like vommiting after i eat and headaches, the headache could be from crying though, i stress out easily when it comes to body fluids coming out of me. Also, i've talked to my mother, she said it might be part of a tampon suck in me. but i don't see why that would then make gross brown stuff come out of me. PLEASE HELP ME!, I already have mental problems i have to deal with, and now physical problems. PLEASE!
Off to the doctor with you - and then you will know for sure. Please do not delay and good luck!
