Question: masterbating for months, no period, brown discharge

 reignfromfrance - Mon Jan 05, 2009 3:04 am

Im 17 I usually have irregular periods like sometimes I only have my periods every other month. I've been masterbating for atleast 3 months, using my hands or a hair brush handle. I havent had my period since Oct. 2008, and now I notice I have brown discharge with some small chunks like when you have your period. I don't have a fever though so I don't think its a pelvic inflammation?

User avatar Hello,
At your age it is especially normal to have irregular periods. It is possible you are not ovulating every month. Hormones can take a while to become regulated (if they ever do). Brown discharge usually means old blood. It may be you have not passed the blood from your period and after it sits a while, you finally expel it. I don't believe this has anything to do with the masturbation unless you have injured your vagina from rough action. I would watch and see if additional symptoms develop but I suspect this will resolve on its own.

Best wishes.
