Question: Dark Vaginal Discharge


 ScaredTeen - Wed Oct 26, 2005 5:19 pm

A few days ago I noticed a little bit of brown diahrea-like discharge either when I wipe or in my underwear. It's not constant but it comes at least once a day. l also have been having cramp like feelings and my period should be comming any day now. I've only been sexually active with one person and the same goes for them. I haven't had sex for about 2 weeks now and I'm really scared that I could be pregnant but we use condoms all the time. I'm also not on any kind of birth control. I've never been to a gyn and I'm terrified to go get it checked out. Please tell me what's going on.

User avatar If you period should be comming any day now, then what your probably seeing is the start of you period. The red blood should start soon.
