Light pink or orange discharge when I wipe

I'm 17 years old and my period ended Friday. On Saturday my boyfriend and I had sex and he used a condom and we made sure it didn't break by putting water in it afterwards. Then two days later I saw light pink on my toilet paper when I wiped and now the next day it's a little darker. What is it?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for your question.

The pink vaginal discharge could be spotting caused by irritation during intercourse, if you were not adequately lubricated or your boyfriend was too aggressive.

No need to worry about possibly being pregnant because this happened the day after your period ended, which was too early in the new cycle for ovulation, and your boyfriend wore a condom that did not break.

If the discharge increases, you should contact your doctor.
