Hi doctor,

I recently had unprotected sex with a guy twice in an interval of three days. After the first time, there was a lot of pain, but had a regular whitish discharge. Second time, I started having this brownish or yellowish discharge and I have taken the photo of the discharge. I am not sure what it is? Neither of us have STDs. I am quite scared of being pregnant. I do not remember when I had my last period. Is this discharge normal? Please help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The brownish discharge seems to be due to rupture of your hymen. Generally, if you have sex for the first time in case of a virgin, then the hymen gets partly withered or at times does not. However, during repeated acts of intercourse, there are fair enough chances that it ruptures and maybe that is the cause of brownish discharge after the second time. However, we will wait and watch as there is no such matter of concern. If it happens again, then please do visit a nearby gynecologist and get an internal check done.

Coming to the pregnancy point, if you do not remember your periods date, then at least get a urine pregnancy test done after one month and wait for the results. If the result is negative, then repeat the test after a week.
