Finished period over a week but now having some pinkish discharge that turns to red blood

Hi, I just finished my period over a week and had some pinkish discharge and turns to blood and which I noticed when I go to the toilet and it float in the toilet. It has become redder and like period red and more than 5 days now and it is less than period flow and it won t stop. However I have just traveled from Asia to Europe, does that effect? My last period was usual and last for a week. Thank you.

Hi Shirley,
Travelling shouldnt affect your menstrual cycle.Most common causes of intermenstrual bleeding is hormonal imbalance and use of hormonal contraceptives.If this lasts for more than 2 weeks you need to have it checked out by a doctor.Another cause might be pathological like polyps etc.

hiii shirley,
Welcome to health care magic.
Your current problem is inter menstrual bleeding.
It may be due to hormonal imbalance or some sort of infection.
If it is less in amount,then need not be worried. It will stop automatically.
Otherwise,if continue this,need to investigate.
Take rest and healthy diet. Also maintain proper hygiene of genitals.
All the best.

Hi there, around a month ago I missed my period over a week so I took a hpt and it Had come back positive about 4 days later I had heavy bleeding and I guess I was around early 3-4 weeks pregant and had a misscarriage the docs said its ok wait awhile and I should start my period within 4-5 weeks. My last actual period was on the 14th dec 2012 and I last for usually 5-6 days, my cycle isn t too off it s between 30-33 day cycle. I had my mc as I presume on 25th January and bleeding lasted for around a week. I have been sexually active since then with my partner and we have consumed unprotected sex roughly 5-6 times after the mc. It s been about 3-4 days now where I get the urge sometimes to pee but it doesn t feel clear enough like I still need to go. Increase Clear discharge sometimes quiet creamy. Don t burn too much only if I hold it in, also some sharp not unbareable pelvic pains on right and left side last 2 days and today while wiping noticed some discharge and pinkish red blood had gone after second wiping? I m really confused I had sex less than 24 hours ago with my partner but I don t bleed afters usually. Could this be my period? Or anything else?

Hi I am a 26 yr old female. Just recently had been admitted to hospital due to pelvic and lower pain. Had a cat scan and it came up normal. Had elevated white blood cells and temperature of 103. Doctor has no idea what is wrong. Went onto two antibiotics for possible bacterial infection. It lowered the white cell count bit did not relieve the pain. Now three days after finishing my prescription I am having yellow discharge to begin with went pee and saw it turn to pinkish red color. Thought maybe my period? Even a week early. Then it combined and became brownish in color and now orange. What is wrong with me??? Please help!

I'm definitely not sexually active, but yesterday I found this purplish brownish discharge in my underwear. I'm supposed to start my period in about a week and am on birth control for my migraines. I put a tampon in and took it out later to see if I could figure out if it was blood or whatever it was. But it didn't smell right or look right. When I put it in the toilet it filled up with water and definitely showed that it was, in fact, a purple. Could you tell me what it possibly is? Maybe a side effect of the sronyx(the birth control I'm using)? I'm going off of that soon because of other side effects, so is that a possibility?

I've been having dark brown discharge about a week before my period. I am on birth control, I take the pills. Sometimes I take it a couple hours later than I should and I sex with my boyfriend. I had sex with my boyfriend when I was supposed to start my period in May but it never came because I spotted in the middle and had switched birth controls. I then had sex with him again but when I was on the pill on the 15th and he did NOT cum inside of me. Could I be pregnant?
