Vaginal discharge?: Similar to a question answered yesterday by a woman of same age. Still sounds like discharge of a color typical for infection, not menstruation.

Causes for what seems to be a light period can include: implantation bleeding in early pregnancy, thyroid problems, eating disorders, excessive exercise, initial periods for a girl, use of an intrauterine device, oral contraceptives & perimenopause.

This usually corrects itself over the next few cycles. If it continues see your doctor to discuss cycle regulation. Birth control is very effective at regulating the cycle and preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

If you have been having unprotected sex in the past, you may want to get a pregnancy test. ...Read more
