Some advice please
Dear Gynaedoc
My period is due on Saturday but yesterday after i've done some domestic work I noticed a brownish discharge very light, It went away during the night, but after intercourse this morning, it came back again. It is very little. I am just wondering if this is just an early period or is this a discharge that would need treatment. Last period was 15 Jan, and had intercourse around ovulation time. Normally my period is very heavy form day1. I did experience a lot of abdominal pain last week.
Any advice would help;

It could be an implantation bleed. Wait and see what happens in the next few days.
