Hello. Im 18. About 4 or 5 days ago I noticed I had a dark brown discharge in my underwear. And when I had intercourse with my boyfriend, he would get turned off because he thinks I was bleeding. I had my period about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I had normal clear/white discharge after that but now Im getting nervous that I might have a medical problem. Ive been searching online to see it and it said something about STD's or being pregnant and being on birth control...I dont take birth control and my boyfriend and I both have been tested for STD's and came out negative.

What could this be?
Im scared :'(

It's probably just old blood, and it's normal. If pregnancy is a concern then take a pregnancy test, but its not really a main symptom that points to pregnancy since there are many things that can potentially cause brown bleeding.

I've had this and I would say its normal, but if you are still concerned then schedule an appointment with your gyno.

Clear white discharge is also normal.
