    Irregular period and excess discharge ???
    An_250349 posted:
    Hello my name is kelsey and I am on birth control but when all of this started I stopped. I had a period for a week not even a week later it started back but it was not normal it was not red and blood like it was dark almost brown sometimes. That lasted a week and the. Stopped. Since then I was having large amounts of discharge it was typically white at first this got this pink tint to it. Now it's become uncomfortable down there not like itchy or anything just like I constantly feel like there's something down there. Then today I've started my period once again only a week after the last one and its super dark like the last time. I am concerned what should I do help?

    It would be a good idea to contact your OB-Gyn regarding these symptoms.
