I just came off a week long (late) period, and now I am noticing little brown flecks in my discharge. Also, it has a smell that is alarming to me because I have never smelled it before. It is definitely off putting... I recently became sexually active and also started taking Birth Control a little over a week ago. No pain or itching, but the smell and small skin like flakes are scaring me. Boyfriend has been tested for STDs and everything was negative. Any ideas?
