Not unusual: Your discharge may be from sex, or the bc, or both. Doubtful for infection. Track your cycle, take your bc, daily at about the same time and call your gyn ...Read more

Doesn't sound like: Withdrawal bleeding is the reaction of abrupt discontinuation of a hormonal supplement. The last 7 days of the pack are sugar pills and cause withdrawal bleeding which you take as a "normal" period but the withdrawal bleeding is a bleeding not stretchy, sticky discharge like you describe. Not sure what it is but it may be worthwhile to have it checked for infection unless this has been ruled out. ...Read more

What is wrong when you have thick, sticky brown vaginal discharge before period is due? Also, I took emergency contraceptive 3 weeks ago.

May be nothing wrong: What you are experiencing may be a variation on normal or the effect of plan B. If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Needs testing: Vaginal discharge will change throughout the menstrual cycle. Brown can simply indicate old blood. Vaginal odor can be a sign of bacterial vaginosis. Vaginal itching can be a sign of a yeast infection. Sometimes vaginal discharge can be a sign of a sexual transmitted infection. It is a good idea to get checked out. ...Read more

Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. ...Read more

Infection? STD?: Any new, abnormal, or unexplained vaginal discharge should be professionally examined. Thick and white suggests infection, which also can cause spotting between periods. At age 21, STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, or trichomonas are among the most common causes, so get it checked out ASAP. Your local NHS GUM clinic would be an excellent source for expert, lifestyle-sensitive care. Good luck! ...Read more
