I have brown odorless discharge. I finished my period a few weeks ago. What could this be?  I do not have pain while I urinate and during intercourse.

Had Pink/Light brown discharge for few hours 4 days ago instead of period. Test Negative this morning. Hving odorless discharge. Any chance of pg?

A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

I got the nexplanon implant in March and my periods have completely stopped since then. However I have a constant brown discharge. It's odorless, I was just wondering if this was a normal reaction to the implant?

Progesterone will often prevent ovulation, and therefore your regular period. The "brown discharge" is the shedding of the lining of the uterus, and is normal when first accommodating to the active hormone in the implant. ...Read more
