Expired mirena (levonorgestrel) for 6-7yrs. In place, very painful intercourse, bleeding after sex, pressure/fullness in vagina, pink discharge when I wipe after urinating?

Mirena (levonorgestrel): First, the Mirena (levonorgestrel) should be withdrawn as its useful term has expired. The bleeding after sex could be due to the mirena, (levonorgestrel) however, it could also occur due to problems with the cervix. The pink discharge you see when wiping could be from a uti. In all, you need an exam and pap smear to rule out infection in the pelvis, bladder and cervix, and to rule out precancerous lesions of the cervix. ...Read more

My bf ejaculated outside my vagina. Like 2weeks agothis week I only bleed heavy&today I got pink discharge when I would wipe now its over. What is this?

Can become pregnant: If you have intercourse, you can become pregnant, so I suggest a pregnancy test if you bleeding looks different from your usual menses. It may be too early for a reliable home pregnancy test result, so you may need to repeat the test in 2 weeks. See you doctor if periods don't normalize. ...Read more

I'm not pregnant, but for the past week or so when I have a BM when I wipe I pink discharge coming from my vigina, I'm worried HELP??

I have tingling and a pink discharge in my vaginia. Also about due or maybe little overdue for my period. Could I be pregnant?

Maybe: It's possible, but it also could just be your period getting ready to start. I usually recommend waiting until you are about a week late before checking a pregnancy test.

My boyfriend fingered me and now the outside of my vagina is brown, not discharge. The actual skin that is usually pink is brown.?

HMMMM: Unless the finger was dirty and had some brown substance on it that changed your skin color, then fingering would not cause and changes. Hormonal changes can cause skin color changes, just as the nipple (Areola) can change color throughout the periods and after pregnancy etc., so maybe hormones that rose during the sexual pleasure of fingering may be the culprit. See Gyn if concerned. ...Read more

Inside of vagina is dark pink/ purplish color. Had clear ovulation like discharge but then dry the next day. Two negative test. Could I be pregnant?

Inside of vagina is dark pink/ purplish color. Had clear ovulation like discharge but then dry the next day. Two negative test. Could I be pregnant?

Maybe not, but...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. 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

See doctor: It sounds like you definitely have an infection. Could be simple like a yeast infection, or could be a more serious STD. But definitely if you have white placques or papules, then probably yeast, but would want to make sure isn't herpes or syphilis.

The outside of my vagina (not where the hair grows) pink area is itchy. No unusual smell or discharge or spots. I do douche?

Don't douche: First don't douche. The vagina does a great job cleaning itself and you don't need to douche. Douching will only make the healthy normal flora of the vagina off. Second the two most common causes of itching are contact dermatitis and yeast infection. If you are using any new products then stop doing so and see if this makes a difference. ...Read more

The skin of my vagina has gone from pink to white. Not discharge. The skin is turning white. Is this a STD if so which ones can cause this.?

See your Gyn: It would be helpful to know your age. Any area on the vagina or vulva that turns white needs to be biopsied because in some cases this is a pre-cancer. There are also b-9 causes such as vitaligo, Human Papiloma Virus, warts, to name a few. This is a situation where you need to see your Gyn for an evaluation to know for sure what it is and make sure its not serious. Best wishes! ...Read more
