Sorry this is quite embarrassing and probably to much

Customer Question

Sorry this is quite embarrassing and probably to much information but I have been experiencing brown smelly discharge recently. Today I've seen like a muted red/pink discharge. I am not on my period, nor am I late for my period. I stopped my period 8 days ago and am on contraception. Should I be worried? Can you tell me what it is? Thank you

Yes you should have an exam.

Infection is the most likely cause here, particularly with the smell.

Yeast, or bacterial overgrowth are possible.

STD if you were exposed.

See your doctor.
