Need to see doctor: Your ob/gyn doctor is the best person to answer this question in person. You need to have a physical gyne exam done by your doctor, and if they need to run tests, they will. You want to make sure that this bleeding is not causing any anemia from excessive blood loss. However, they need to see you first, so it can be documented for further work up. ...Read more

Anxiety?: The way you ask the question, it's pretty obvious you're worried about an unplanned pregnancy. Anxiety can cause physical symptoms. That's called somatization.

Menstrual cramping: Usually caused by female hormone fluctuations. If you are not allergic use Aleve (naproxen) or Advil for pain and cramping. The brown discharge is most likely old menstrual blood; however if you are having unprotected sex, I suggest a pelvic exam and culture of the discharge to rule out infection. ...Read more

Why do my ovaries hurt when I sneeze? Not on period, not on birth control- have been of for just over a month. Had first period since.

Ultrasound: For this answer you probably need a physical exam and perhaps an ultrasound. Checking for an ovarian cyst is one possibility. The source of the pain may not be your ovaries though. Sneezing causes a tightening of the abdominal wall muscles and this may be the source of the pain. You also should be checked for a hernia. ...Read more

This can be either of the two most common non-STD infections: yeast vaginitis or bacterial vaginosis. Both of these are best evaluated and treated by a primary care or gyn provider but you can also try an over the counter yeast treatment if available and see if symptoms get better. ...Read more

Yes it could be.: If the egg didn't release on time, there could be a "functional" cyst. But be sure that the late period isn't related to a pregnancy. If there is a possible pregnancy, run a home urine test. The pain may be related to a tubal pregnancy or a corpus luteum cyst which is normal during an early pregnancy. ...Read more
