Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had sex last month while I was on my period and I used Postinorr after all. I went for a scan after noticing a white discharge on my undergarment and I was told I had a PID infection. On that same day, I saw a brown discharge but the doctor told me maybe it was my period. After that, I had my period twice in the same month for four days. My question is even after using all the medication prescribed I still get symptoms like stomach pain and back pain. Sometimes this feeling does fluctuate. I am scared. Can it be a pregnancy?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your case and I understand your concern. As per your description, if you had intercourse on your menstrual day after that there was no physical contact then there is no chance of getting pregnant. Sometimes during ovulation (around the 14th day of the cycle ) some spotting or slight bleeding may occur, which is normal. The pain you are suffering from must be PID (pelvic inflammatory disease). May I know which medications you took and for how many days? I hope this information helps you, for further queries you can reconnect.

Thank you.
