Hi, I had unprotected sex and got my 'period' 2 days later. It's been two days but I've only had brown discharge so far. I was on the Pill till 3 days before the sex, and got the period right on schedule. However, this brown discharge is scaring me!

Also, my period last month was very similar. brown discharge for 2 days and light bleeding for the next few. but I hadn't had unprotected sex then so I was not worried about pregnancy. Any idea what I could be going though? Thanks x

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to our community with your concern.

Since this has gone on for two cycles, you really need to report this to your gynecologist.

Brown discharge is old blood, and you want to find out why this is happening.

Please keep us updated,
