I have hpv. last week I had pink spotting and this week im having ALOT of brown discharge and inside my vagina it burns but not when i pee.

However, colored vaginal discharge usually indicates other kinds of infection, including STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas). Yeast infection can cause burning pain. See your doctor soon for exam and testing. Good luck! ...Read more

? Mid cycle bleed: Mid-cycle mild bleeding is not uncommon due to fall in hormone levels. If this is the only issue, you may wait to discuss it with your doctor at the next visit. Do follow your doctor's instructions for repeat PAPs. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
