Breast pain: Is a side effect of implanon. Use warm compresses, Acetaminophen or ibuprofen, to see if it gets better with time. Have your doctor evaluate you for the discharge and follow up on the breast tenderness. Good luck! ...Read more

May be normal: It is normal to have a small amount of vaginal discharge, since mucus helps keep the vagina healthy. This mucus may be thicker around ovulation. It should not smell very strong, be itchy or painful. ...Read more

I am having clear mucus like vaginal discharge with streaks of blood after having outercourse(fully clothed). Can you tell me why?

Discharge: A vaginal discharge in all likelihood would NOT be caused by simply having the act of sex reproduced while fully clothed. If rough, there maybe an abrasion causing the inflammation, but the discharge would be most likely of another origin. Best to see your GYN Doctor and get an evaluation. Best wishes. ...Read more

Unrelated: These two things are unrelated. Could be seasonal allergies for the nose and eyes. The vaginal discharge could be a myriad of things. If you're really worried, you'll need to see your primary care doctor for a more compete evaluation. Could try over the counter allergy meds in the mean time. Hope this Helps! ...Read more
