I'm 17 years old and today i noticed that my discharge is pink. I've only had sex like 2 or 3 times and that was over a year ago. I tried asking my mom about it but she paid me no attention about it and said I'll be fine, but I know its not suppose to be pink though. I just got off my period a few days ago. What do I do? Please help and thanks in advance.

It means you have some light spotting. It might just be some left over blood. It can also happen after masturbation, or because of a hormonal disturbance or infection. Most of the time, it is just because. There is no specific reason. That is why your mom did not bother with it. If it happens every cycle, or are very heavy, or does not stop, or you think you have an infection, you should see your doctor.
