    Vaginal Discharge: Brownish, No Smell, No Itching
    alexnk posted:
    About 4 days ago I went to my gynecologist, because about a week after I finished my period I was having brown discharge. Once I got my period this past month it went away. My gynecologist said it was because of a change in my hormone levels. Today, about a week or two after I finished my period, I had protected sex and the discoloration came back. There's also a very minor pain during sex when my boyfriend goes a little too hard. Why is this happening? Is this normal?
    betsyo1967 responded:
    you need to continue to follow up with your gyn as symptoms continue.

    have you and your bf had full std testing done?
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
    alexnk replied to betsyo1967's response:
    He was a virgin, and I haven't been tested for "the major ones". I did get tested for both gonorrhea and chlamydia, both came out negative. Now I'm on birth control though, and it's stopped.
    alexnk replied to alexnk's response:
    But it just came back tonight, I'm not sure if my bodies just getting usedo the birth control or if my boyfriend is being too "rough".
