Started my bc a week late. Had sex 3rd week on pill. Boyfriend hit something I begin to bleed. Got my period on green pills had weird looking clot.?

See a gynecologist: Given that you had sex 3 weeks after starting your birth control, I am NOT worried that you are pregnant. Your birth control is likely working fine. However the fact that you are having bleeding after sex makes me wonder if there isn't something abnormal about your cervix that needs examination. It might not be that serious, but I would have it checked out, make sure you have a normal pap smear ...Read more

Can your finger turning green from a ring over an extended period of time be harmful?

FindANewBoyfriend: Yes. Harmful to your relationship. That cheap SOB sold you a bill of goods! Well, hopefully not. You didn't say what kind of ring it is. The probable culprit, copper, is added in small amounts to gold and silver (Sterling, by the way; didn't know I was a copper, huh?)So if it's made or coated with them, voila! Green in some people. So think steel, platinum & white gold-or-coat your ring with clear nail polish ...Read more

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

17yrs old. I've been having green discharge for a few weeks. I started my period and it went away. It came back when my period was over. What's wrong?
