For the past couple days I have noticed a dark brown discharge in my underwear and it has a sort of vinegar smell but when I wipe there's nothing...lately I've been having stomach problems such as nausea and random stomach aches and pains but I just had my period about two weeks ago. I'm not stressed about anything really so what could this be from? I had sex maybe a month ago and I'm really scared because we didn't use a condom but he said he pulled out. Please help!
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Dark brown discharge, nausea, abdominal cramps could be suggestive of pregnancy, hormonal derangements, infection, PID etc. Pull out method is associated with high failure rates. If you were in your fertile days (time of egg release from ovary) at the time of unprotected intercourse, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. If your symptoms continue/persist, then consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough examination and tests to confirm the cause.
