    Black thick discharge
    MeghanLKH posted:
    My period is expected in 14 days. Two days ago I started having a thick black discharge. There's no odor that I can tell (my sinuses are super bad right now so smelling isn't easy). I douched but it didn't help. I had this last month, as well, but it's worse this month. Both times it's started half way between periods. I had my tubes tied in April 2008 and I'm wondering if it could be something related to that, such as a fistula on a tube or something, or completely unrelated. Any insight, tips, advice or words of wisdom?
