Im 18 and I'm not currently using any contraceptives. About 3 weeks ago my boyfriend had sores on his penis. We thought it was thrush, so he used a thrush cream and it went away. Then I had a thrush like discharge. I took an oral thrush tablet but it didn't go away until I had my period last week. Today during intercourse I had a brown discharge. I was wondering if this is normal or could be an sti or something?

Could be and the only way you will find out is to visit the doc or the clinic and you should both get checked out at the same time or risk reinfecting each other.

You shouldn't be having unprotected sex until you are certain about each other. Currently the period before it is considered safe to have unprotected sex with a single partner (no others involved at all) is about seven years.
If either strays even once the clock is turned back to zero again...

You weren't very wise to have unprotected sex while he had sores on his penis. An 18 year old should really have more sense...

There is a lot of things it isn't wise to do but you are really pushing the boundaries...
