Protected sex a little over a week ago after my period. Now I have a white dry clump discharge sometime, lower abdomen pain, going #2 more often? Why?

Discharge: Well if you had protected sex, it is very unlikely that you are pregnant unless the Condom was malfunctioned, usually women get more discharge, mild abdominal pain, feel hot and can get urinary and stool frequency. If your discharge is a stretchy egg-white then you are around your Ovulation. If the symptoms didn't go away in couple of days see a provider. ...Read more

Couple weeks after sex I had a regular period then month later a weird period that was a bit watery & ive been having lower abdomen pain, What's wrong?

Get seen: It is unlikely that you are pregnant since you had a normal period after sex, but it is not impossible. Sometimes "implantation bleeding" can be mistaken as a period. You should also be screened for STDs since these can cause a change in discharge and abdominal pain. See your PCP or go to an urgent care or health clinic soon. ...Read more

Take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. Seems unlikely since you had your period. ...Read more

Why did I bleed during sex? I've got no stds, it also wasn't my period, but there was quite a lot of blood, I've also got lower abdomen pain afterwards.

Blood=tissue damage: Any active non-menstrual bleeding/spotting you have after intercourse would reflect some type of injury to tissues exposed to the mechanical forces involved. You might see a small bleeding site with a close self exam (lighted mirror) or a doc could locate the site. If it is minimal and you keep the areas clean it will likely stop. If you are soaking pads you need to be evaluated. ...Read more

I have sharp lower abdomen pain along with sore breast. Last month I had a very late and short period. Very irregular for me. What could it be?

Ectopic?: The most concerning thing would be an ectopic pregnancy, a pregnancy out in the tubes. It would be good for you to take a pregnancy test. If it is positive and you are having abdominal pain you need to go to Emergency to get an ultrasound to make sure the pregnancy is not in the tubes. If not pregnant it could be an ovarian cyst causing pain and irregular periods. ...Read more

Experiencing lower abdomen pain, lower back pain, on my right side & missed period. Also just discovered a cyst on my right lower neck region. Related?
