  • pain during sex and now weird discharge... worried!

    Hi, I want to know if I should go to the doctor or wait to see if this just goes away on its own...

    About two weeks ago, I had sex with an ex boyfriend and it was extremely painful, especially with deep penetration. Sex with him before was always just really good, so that was weird...

    Anyway, I started my period not long after, and it was normal for me and lasted two days with little cramping. A few days after it stopped, (no spotting or discharge), I started having brown vaginal discharge that has a really strong odor.

    I'm worried that something is wrong, but I haven't had unprotected sex in over 6 months, so I don't think it's an STI... I hope.

    Any input would be very helpful!

  • If you were not aroused leading to little lubrication it can hurt, if he did not loosen your muscles up down there first it can hurt, if he penetrates too hard and hits the cervix it can hurt. You need to ask him to slow down.

    Brown spotting is old blood, it is very normal.
    There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.


    • Thank you for your input!

      I still might mention it to the doctor, but I feel much better now
