I was diagnosed with hpv during pregnancy and I bleed 24/7 and when I'm not bleeding I have a brown discharge with skin like particles. HELP?

Probably not HPV: HPV usually doesn't cause vaginal discharge or bleeding, so this more likely is something else. Are you still pregnant? At risk for STD? Any new, abnormal, or unexplained vaginal discharge or bleeding requires professional evaluation, and you have both. See your doctor soon -- if still pregnant, call your obstetrician immediately. Good luck! ...Read more
