I had discharge the week after intercouse,only one week, and tender breasts. The tender breast feeling went away, but I got it back today. I noticed that my breast look a bit fuller. My period is in about 1 week (the 20s of this month), I had intercourse 3 weeks ago.
The only thing that has happened was the discharge which I had for only a week and a half, but it looked like the discharge I get before my period. I'm 17.

Also, slight discomfort like cramps just started. I'm not sure if its pregnacy or PMS.

Any comments or anything would help. I apprciate it, thank you.

The timing of the sex and this makes it more likely to be PMS.

I hope you are protecting yourself. At 17 you should be able to make responsible choices.

Since it has been more than 21 days since you had sex, a pregnancy test should be accurate by now.

I started my period few hours ago, it feels like a period(cramps, etc) Its suppose to be around this time( to be exact last time it was the 20th,and the previous month it was the 23rd) but the blood is different right now. Maybe it'll change tomorrow, I dunno.

its dark brown and yeah then a little red blood comes out, not alot though...but ayway..Why is this?...Is it normal?...Could it be symptoms of something?

I'm 16, I've been having periods since I was 11.

For once you are glad to see your period Smile

Brown blood means it is old blood. It can be old because it was left over from earlier, or it is just coming out slowly.

You also have to realize that your body is not a machine. It can act differently sometimes. If your periods are the same every single cycle, you are lucky.

Your uterus has an anticlotting agent that it use to prevent your menstrual flow from clotting. Can you imagine how painful it would be if that blood clot inside your uterus? Sometimes there will be less of this anticlotting agent, and the flow will be more brown.

This is very seldomly a problem.

Please be careful and protect yourself future.

I will, actually, me and my boyfriend are not having intercourse for a while. It is not the right time. I'm 16! I was so scared! We can both wait, that is all that matters.

Thank You all for your information. It helped a lot!

and yes, I am just waiting to get on birth control, but with school and all, I'm placing that on hole for now.

Birth control, that is just another confusion!

Thank You.
