During period after masturbation only clitoris, brown and slightly red discharge came out and it only came after the session is it bad?

During period after masturbation only clitoris, brown and slightly red discharge came out and it only came after the session is it bad?

Coincidental: Hi. I doubt that clitoral masturbation has anything to do with the vaginal discharge you describe. Clitoral masturbation will definitely moisten the vagina, and orgasm will cause uterine contraction among other things. However, the brown/red discharge almost sounds like part of a period. When in your cycle did this occur? If it is abnormal vaginal bleeding, please see your gyn. Good luck! ...Read more

I have tough, membraneous, tissue- like discharge during period. What is it? I am on the pill but started my pack a week late this month.

I have tough, membraneous, tissue- like discharge during period. What is it? I am on the pill but started my pack a week late this month.

Uterine lining: Each month, the lining of your uterus which is made up of 'mebraneous material" grows in response to hormonal stimulation preparing for possible implantation/pregnancy. If no pregnancy occurs, this lining is shedded (because of drop in hormones (estrogen, progesterone) at end of cycle resulting in menstrual flow and thus you see the "membraneous tissue." hope that makes sense. Have fun learning. ...Read more

Having really heavy clear discharge during period, is this normal? My period is not normal this month, im having more clear discharge than blood.

I'm on birth control pill this month I started having a dark discharge. Started a week before the 21 cycle finished and during period days (instead)

I'm on birth control pill this month I started having a dark discharge. Started a week before the 21 cycle finished and during period days (instead)

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more

Gf had pink/brown discharge a week after period we had sex before and during period she wasn't ovulating during discharg. She has alot of preg symptoms

Gf had pink/brown discharge a week after period we had sex before and during period she wasn't ovulating during discharg. She has alot of preg symptoms

Hard to guess: 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

Had unprotected sex on first day of period. Period lasted 4 days. Period was lighter but had clots during period. Now clear stretchy discharge. Prego?

Had unprotected sex on first day of period. Period lasted 4 days. Period was lighter but had clots during period. Now clear stretchy discharge. Prego?

Probably not: The fist day of the period is considered the fist day of the cycle. Ovulation usually occurs mid-cycle, which would be around day 14 for those who have a 28 day cycle. When the cervical mucus is stretchy that usually means you are ovulating and intercourse at that time could result in a pregnancy. ...Read more

Tissue like membranous discharge during period. This never happened before. I took an emergency contraceptive pill 5-6 days back. Is this discharge ok?

Probably normal: The menses that women have is the shedding of the uterine lining. Sometimes there are "tissue-like" parts that can be expelled, especially if EC is taken. I don't think you need to worry. Take a pregnancy test in 2-3 weeks. ...Read more

Preg test neg, light pink & light brown discharge at time of periods & cramps after coffee, during period week. Is that my periods not coming properly?

Preg test neg, light pink & light brown discharge at time of periods & cramps after coffee, during period week. Is that my periods not coming properly?

Periods can vary: Menstrual periods may vary a little in length, pain and flow. Sometimes they can even be skipped or come very early or late due to stress. Occasionally periods are more painful due to an STD. If your pregnancy test was negative, and you had a period of any sort, you are probably not pregnant. If you are still concerned, re-check a home test in a week, and/or see your gynecologist. ...Read more

If I always have a brown discharge during "period" (no red) while taking birth control for many months, did birth control pill fail me?

If I always have a brown discharge during "period" (no red) while taking birth control for many months, did birth control pill fail me?

No.: No, it isn't a sign of 'failing', but. The birth control pills can definitely change the type, color, amount of bleeding that a woman has during her menses. Sometimes the 'period' becomes very light (sometimes the pills will cause menses to stop, which is an effect of the progestin hormone in the pills, and the type and amount of estrogen), or can become discharge, as you described. ...Read more

Vulvar irritarion stops during period and come back after it. One part of vulva red, itchy no discharge. Skin raw. Could be hormonal? My doc has no idea

Had unprotected sex during period (about a week ago). Excessive vaginal discharge, some cramping, kinda thirsty. Pregnant? Or is still to early?

Had unprotected sex during period (about a week ago). Excessive vaginal discharge, some cramping, kinda thirsty. Pregnant? Or is still to early?

Too early: If your periods are very regular and about 28 days in length, and this was a totally normal period, it is unlikely (but theoretically possible) that you are pregnant. I would be more concerned about the possibility of an std if there is unusual discharge and cramping. Please be evaluated. Use condoms with any sexual activity unless you are actively trying to get pregnant. ...Read more

Not normal: A nipple discharge is not normal and should always be checked by a doctor. The exceptions would of course be in late pregnancy or while breast-feeding, and also it's common for long-distance runners to get nipple irritation and potentially a discharge from continuous rubbing against the shirt/bra. ...Read more
