But we are biologic organisms, & things are constantly changing. A change in flow is often due to changes in hormone balance or even a period where ovulation hasn't preceded it. Will likely return to usual pattern soon. If changes persist, see your doctor. ...Read more

I have long stringy discharge 10 days since the last day of my period. No oder. No pain. Could this be a concern or just natural?

Normal: It can be normal discharge depending on when you actually ovulated. After ovulation your cervical discharge will become thinner and "stringy" allowing for easier egg implantation.

I suggest keeping a menstrual diary using the following: (S)- start, (E)-end, (H)-heavy and (L)-light. This will be helpful to both you and your GYN. ...Read more

After my period, or on the last day rather, the blood becomes brown discharge. How long does the brown discharge last and/or can I stop it myself?

Brown: Its likely just old blood coming out, which is relatively common. However, if you're sexually active and this has an odor it could also be an infection. If that's the case then I would see a physician (family or gyn) on a day you note the discharge especially. Also a good time to maybe start a birth control pill and shorten your period. ...Read more
