Hello! I have a question...
So this happened on Monday:

http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/54/t/000474/p/1.html#000000

And today my discharge on my panties seemed normal, white. But when I went to relieve myself, I saw a bit of discharge with a little blood...

I had an STI screening last month and my partner and I are both healthy and monogamous. My period started on 5/7 and ended around 5/14. So what's happening? Please help ASAP. This only happened noticably today. I had light pink spotting earlier this week (Tuesday?)

Do you think it could be an infection or is it normal? This has never happened before and I'm worried...I don't know if I can see a doctor...

A healthcare provider is the only person who will be able to figure out what's going on here, unfortunately. Spotting can happen for many reasons and there's no way for us to know what the cause is here. If you like, though, we can help you find healthcare, or you could start by contacting the provider who did your STI screenings.

Hi xvaleriex. As Karyn said, a healthcare provider is the only person who will be able to find out what's going on/if there is anything going on, so getting an appointment with your doctor ASAP is definitely the best bet here [Smile]

Okay...I'll definitely try to get an appointment ASAP. It's just that my mother won't schedule an appointment for me...she says I'm "fine". She's just afraid that my dad might find out about my relations with my boyfriend and might see the bill if I do get an appointment...is there anything I can do on my own? Or anything that is low cost (though I suppose that's not realistic...)?

Well, you should be able to schedule an appointment with your doctor yourself. And people need sexual healthcare whether they're sexually active or not -- furthermore, this may not have anything to do with whatever kind of sex you are or are not having.

Also? As far as I know, billing for things like that isn't going to be specific enough for someone to realize that you're sexually active even if it turns out this is something that's caused by sexual activity. It'll be general tests that would be run whether or not you were sexually active. So going to your doctor shouldn't have to be something that is kept secret.

That said, there are often walk-in health clinics or sexual health clinics that you'd be able to go to. You could check our Find a Doc service for clinics near you, or if that doesn't work for you/doesn't have any clinics listed near you, a simple google search would probably do the trick for finding any local clinics.
