Brief Answer: infection or ovulation Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Since you had your period on XXXXXXX 1st, possibility of pregnancy can be surely ruled out.Lower abdominal pain with some spotting can occur mid cycle, due to infections like UTI, vaginal infection or ovulation. In your case, i would first rule out infection. Masturbation can often be an accessory to infection. If its ovulation pain, there may some light spotting also, but it only lasts a day or two. You need to wait and watch for another day. If you stop bleeding, its quite possibly ovulation pain. If it continues, then likely, the cause is hormonal imbalance and needs to be investigated further. Meanwhile, drink plenty of water and clear fluids to flush out infection. Keep the area clean. Wash only with water, esp after using the toilet.

Brief Answer: hormonal imbalance Detailed Answer: More than likely, the breast pain is hormonal. Use a tight brasserie and hot fomentation. If there is no relief use primrose oil caps. White discharge may be abnormal if its thick and curdy. That imitates infection. Use probiotics daily to prevent that. Pain is likely to be due to infection or uti. Ovulation pain is transient.
