I dunno where to ask this, but I figured this forum would get more serious replies than in offtopic. And I know she should consult a doctor, but I'm just looking for some input before she goes to see one... So my girlfriend and I haven't really been sexually active since May, when we were last at school. We try to be careful and use protection. We had sex for the last time at school and then she got her period as normal. In June, she didn't get her period, just an extremely light "brownish discharge" that lasted about 10 days and she described it as feeling like she was constantly on the verge of getting her period. Keep in mind we did not have sex at all between her last real period and this one. At the end of that "period" I finally got to see her and we had sex once. Now this month she's going through the same thing. She says she'll have a couple spots of red from time to time but mostly it's just a really light, brown discharge. Last year she had the same thing for one month in July. Is this extremely out of the normal? What could it be? I severely doubt pregnancy because she got her period after the last time we were really sexually active, and this sort of thing happened last year too (although for only 1 month, not 2 in a row) but I have to admit it's been on my mind... any thoughts? cliffs : -girlfriend and I are sexually active at school. -school ends, as does our sexual activity with it. -she gets a normal period -then twice in a row instead of getting her periods she gets a feeling as if she is "on the verge of getting it" accompanied with a light, brownish discharge. -same thing happened 1 month last year, in July. (this year, June and July) Thoughts?
