Not sure how much of an emergency this is so feel free to move it, mods? D: More of a minor crisis perhaps... Anyway, the facts: - Menstruation 2--8 January, 36-day cycle. I'm not on the pill. - Boyfriend returned from overseas after a month away and we had sex around 12 Jan. evening (condom completely intact before and after) - On the 13th evening, I started having a moderate-to-large amount of brown discharge -- stains underwear, also appears when I wipe after using the bathroom -- and it's persisting today (15th where I am)
I understand it's pretty common for the body to release old blood after periods, but not this much. There's also no pain, itching/swelling/growth or detectable odour, so it might not be an infection. Still, it's now the third day of aforesaid brown discharge so I'm a little disconcerted (and Google MD will probably just say "cancer") Thoughts? Thanks everyone
