I am 23, still virgin and have never had any sexual activities nor am I on pills or anything like that.
My period started 7 days ago, it barely came the first day, was just spots, and the blood was a pure red which is bit different for me, and the smell was bit different.
It lasted for about 5 days but I have been having a yellowish-Orange light discharge for those 2 days ( at first it was still bit pinkish too), it is not heavy or thick but it is there. , only when I wipe. Not on the pad or anything. It doesnt have a bad smell or anything. But I am worried because it never happened to me before.
Should I be worried? and what is the cause?.. I am very scared to be honest..

Welcome to ehealthforum

Yellowish orange discharge may be due to any kind of infection like bacterial or fungal infection.The infection is sometimes also due to tampoon usage.
You might consider seeing a gynaecologist so that a proper examination can be done and may also require investigation like pap smear in which the vaginal fluid is collected to study the causative organism and then treated accordingly.

Take Care!
