See the Doctor: The color is not within normal limits within the first few day so it is important to see your ob-gyne. Hormones, diet, stress, iron level, and some prescribed pills to name a few can affect a woman's menstrual period. The flow decreases by the end of the period and not supposed to be heavier. ...Read more

Clear stringy discharge with brown blood 2&4 days before period on properly taken bc pill. Mild cramps, 2 negative pregnancy tests. Normal?

Clear stringy discharge with brown blood 2&4 days before period on properly taken bc pill. Mild cramps, 2 negative pregnancy tests. Normal?

Likely: If you take the pill consistently, it is likely a normal matter. Pregnancy test was done too early and a negative result before a missed period is not meaningful. God forbid, you miss your period by 4-5 days, then to a pregnancy test, use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully. ...Read more

Irregular bleeding: Based on what you have stated in your question it sounds as though you may be due to get your period again soon. Irregular bleeding or spotting mid cycle does not always indicate a problem. Stress can affect your cycle. If you are sexually active and you do not get your period in the next week or two I would suggest a pregnancy test. See your doctor if you develop pain or a fever. ...Read more

Pregnancy test: Hopefully, this is just old menstrual blood mixed with vaginal secretions; however, having sexual intercourse while ovulating, will ultimately lead to pregnancy. Do a pregnancy test. Get on BC pills or use condoms PLUS spermicidal foam, jelly, sponge or vaginal eggs. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex December 5th, took plan b December 6th. Had little brown blood December 12th for 4 days. Now having clear watery discharge.?

I had unprotected sex December 5th, took plan b December 6th. Had little brown blood December 12th for 4 days. Now having clear watery discharge.?

Some thoughts...: Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding 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. If there is an unusual, new vaginal discharge, one's doctor can check for the cause, which could be an infection. ...Read more

MENSTRUAL BLEEDING: IF YOU HAVE BEEN USING CONDOMS, THIS WILL BE YOUR PERIOD. Sometimes cycles start with a few days of the brown gooey blood before the bleeding starts. This happens more frequently as you get older. It has to do with hormonal control of the endometrial lining. If you haven't used contraception, check a pregnancy test. ...Read more

My period is four days late; but having bad cramps, brown discharged mixed with "period blood" but no flow. What is this/what should I do?

Check pregnancy test: Check a pregnancy test. If positive, you may be experiencing an early miscarriage. If negative, you likely had a late ovulation this month which threw your cycle off.

Unusual cycles that only happen once usually aren't worth working up. Consistently irregular or problematic cycles are worth a visit to the gynecologist. ...Read more
