Green Discharge On A Tampon
I keep finding a light green spot on my tampons, not a discharge. It's relatively the same shape and in the same place each time. Any ideas?

Here'sBloodInyourEye: Ever got into a bar brawl? Fall down the stairs? Parachute didn't open? Get punched in the eye? Yeah, think of a "black" eye. The color of a bruise is from blood that has diffused into the skin.

So my h=guess is it's some residual old blood. ...Read more
