See MD if persist: While menstruation can sometime vary in amount of flow, this may require ruling out infections or inflammation. If persisting more than a few days, or if onset pain, fever, nausea, would recommend seeking MD evaluation. A pregnancy test might also be warranted if sexually active.

Pink/brown discharge 5 days after unprotected sex with 99% positive no ejaculation on microlite contraceptive pill. Slight bloating/pain. Am I pregant?

Pink/brown discharge 5 days after unprotected sex with 99% positive no ejaculation on microlite contraceptive pill. Slight bloating/pain. Am I pregant?

Unlikely, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a withdrawal period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant.

6 weeks after D&C and no period yet! But I am having a brownish discharge and bloating. This is my second D&C in 1year. I am worried is this normal.

That is a period: After a D & C the lining of the uterus is minimal and the brown discharge that you have already experienced may be all there is this cycle.

Took plan b 2 wks ago. Bled for a week after. Period is now four days late but I have brown discharge and bloating am I pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: Plan B can alter the menstrual for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time.

A discharge that is: Unusual for you could be due to several factors. A common cause is a yeast infection. Your pharmacist can help you find over the counter medicine to treat this. But there are several other possible causes that would be better evaluated by your doctor. Bloating and other pelvic symptoms are often caused by urinary tract infections. You did the right thing checking your pregnancy test.

Possibly: A home pregnancy test will confirm your symptoms in a matter of minutes. The tests are accurate and fast. If not pregnant, consider repeating in a couple of days if you've missed your period. Otherwise, some Ibuprofen can help with cramping. Clear discharge from vagina is normal.
