Some thoughts...: One's primary care doctor can check out a new or unusual vaginal discharge that started after sex. The doctor can check for a urine infection, if there are any urinary symptoms. Sometimes vaginal discharges are related to overgrowth of non-dangerous bacteria, but other times they are related to sexually-transmitted infectious microbes that need treatment. ...Read more

I'm on Nexplanon and had sex with a condom 9 days ago, and yesterday. Today, I had pink discharge when I wiped. I'm really scared its implantation bleeding. Yesterday, the sex burned. What could the blood be from?

I'm on Nexplanon and had sex with a condom 9 days ago, and yesterday. Today, I had pink discharge when I wiped. I'm really scared its implantation bleeding. Yesterday, the sex burned. What could the blood be from?

Most often: Implantation bleeding doesn't occur at all. When it does, it is usually just a very tiny amount of blood. If it burned when you had sex yesterday, the blood might be due to a small abrasion (especially if there was inadequate lubrication). You might have breakthrough bleeding. You can take an "early" pregnancy test now or wait about 2 weeks to take a regular home pregnancy test. Try not to worry ...Read more

Irregular bleeding: The nexplanon/implanon have an approximately 10% incidence of irregular, unpredictable bleeding. Sometimes adding a birth control pill for a month or so can stabilize the bleeding, or sometimes supplemental estrogen gel/cream (or pills) for a week or two can stabilize/stop this bleeding, but if it doesn't stop, you may need to decide if it is an acceptable side effect, or whether to remove it. ...Read more
