I'm having a problem, I'm having a dark discharge I've had it for about 1-2 weeks now and I'm not sure what it is or why I';m having it? I've also been feeling sick a lot for no apparent reason, bad stomach pain. I know it has nothing to do with anything sexual seeing as I'm a virgin, so what is it?
It could mean that your estrogen levels, progeterone, or testosterone levels are off. Sometimes these can be treated through birth contol pills or other hormone treatments. When blood is very dark it means it is "old" blood being pushed out. You may even need a d/c to clean you out. Could also be fibroid tumors, which are harmless but can cause discharge like that. I'll try to find out more for you.
May be adhesions also, which is usually scar tissue build up on ovaries which will cause pain. A friend of mine had that. If the pain becomes to severe could even be endometriosis. Again, I'll see what I can find out. But you can even go to your PCP if you have one. At 18 you should start seeing a gyny for PAP smears yearly.
There is no way that anyone can tell you what is wrong over the internet. You are old enough to go see a gynecologist, and probably should do so not only to see what this discharge/pain is about, but just to get a good first check up, teaching on self breast exams, questions answered and so on.
No one here can do anything but guess at what's going on.
