Recently had increased vaginal discharge. Today when I went to the bathroom, found small brown fecal looking clumps. On birth control.?
Abnormal discharge: Any new or abnormal vaginal discharge should be professionally evaluated. Not sure what to make of the clumps, but an infection or abnormal vaginal bleeding may be involved. STDs are common at age 21, should be checked. Probably the clumps aren't really feces, but if so it would mean a rectovaginal fistula, i.e. an abnormal connection between vagina and rectum. Bottom line: see doctor soon.

If your glands make more than you can tolerate, you could ask a doctor to prescribe contraception with estrogen and progestins in it. This may change the amount of gland activity.
