Brown period/discharge please help


#1

@Dr_Paula

Hi I am quite worried - I’ve been taking the pill back to back for about 5 or so months and for the past 2-3 weeks ive had brown discharge

It seems to be going away because when I wipe there’s nothing there but then when I have sex there is always brown discharge - I don’t understand what’s happening? Why is it there’s minimal to nothing in my underwear or when I wipe but brown discharge when I have sex?

Please help

Thank you

Hello @M119951

I think that if you have had a brown discharge when you have sex (this often means a small amount of bleeding) then you should see your doctor or sexual health service for a check up. They will check that the neck of your womb looks normal and probably do a pregnancy test and an infection screen.

Many thanks
