15 yrs old had period after 6 months but in brown discharge n bit of blood. Urine resukts no cme but gav samole ova 2 weeks ago. Pain in stomach,?

Not sure what: I do not know what samole ova is. If the brown discharge was at the end of the period this is ok. If the initial discharge was brown and not normal blood then she needs an exam.
It is not clear if this was her first period or if she went six months between periods. Either way, I recommend an exam. ...Read more

I'm 8 weeks late. Urine test and blood test all turned up negative. Recently, I had a little bit of brown discharge coming out. What could it be?

8 weeks late: Hard to tell what the brown discharge is. If pregnancy has effectively been ruled out, it may be that you are having so called anovulation bleeding - bleeding that occurs from the overgrowth of the lining of the uterus (endometrium). It is frequently uncontrolled and may last days or even weeks. I'd go to the doc and have a full history and physical exam to begin with. ...Read more

There was semen in my urine when I was pushing the last bit out. Is something wrong?

There was semen in my urine when I was pushing the last bit out. Is something wrong?

Prostate: Most likely with your pushing, you were able to cause the prostate to be stimulated to express prostatic fluid. This would then come out of the urethra at the end of your urinary stream as you were pushing. This would be the only way I know for this to hapen. With enough pelvic pressure, this could happen. ...Read more
