Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Sometimes mild hormonal disturbance causes a mild intermittent discharge from vagina. If it has happened for the first time then you need not worry and just take it easy. If it happens again then you better see a doctor and go for a pap smear and ultrasound scan.

Hey, I was wondering if it s normal to have brown/ pinkish and dark red like discharge before my period. I m on yasmine for my birth control. I take it diligently. I was a 4 hours late one day tho. I got this discharge like substance 4 days before m inactive pills and hasn t stoped this is day 6 it s very light I m now day 3 of my inactive pills I should get my period. I also would like to mention I decided to skip my period last month because I was going on vacation so I kept taking the pills. Should I be concerned?

doctor1 MD

It happened last month and I thought maybe it was just an infection and my period helped rid me of it. Or maybe the fact that I m slightly anemic. But a few days before both my last period and this one I ve had a discharge that s kind of wet looking and orangish red and pink all rolled into one. What could be the causes for this? Anemia or something else I should be worried about? Possibly pregnancy? We have been trying. I m 26 years old.
