Hi, I'm 14 years old and I haven't started my period yet. Lately, I've been getting some clear discharge, alot. But since two days ago, I've been getting a lot of dark brown discharge with like red stringy things in it as well. It passes with my wee and it ends up all over my knickers :s Sometimes I get lower abdominal pain.
Is this a sign that I'm soon going to start my period or what? please help me.
You are definately about to start your period. The brown color means it is a little blood that didnt come out immediately. its really not as much blood as u think...its just mixed with discharge. as for the burning and itching and increased discharge, u could possibly have a yeast infection. with this being ur 1st time u should speak with a parent or an adult u really trust. I have 2 daughters about ur age. dont b emberassed...its just part of life :) GOOD LUCK!
