RE: After sex?
Hey Doc,

Another thing i failed to mention, about 3 days ago i had an irritating, numbing pain in my vagina - it felt almost like i was itchy but not really itchy more of a numbing pain? Do you think it's related or not?

my msg originally read:
Last night after my fiancé and i 'made love' there was a 'light brownish - red fluid' discharged. then in the morning i started my period but i'm only supposed in 1-2 weeks, and i'm on Triphasil. The same thing has happened for two previous months(this is the 3rd time after each other!). we make love very very often and i'm worried that it could be "damaging" or "not good" in some way... is that a correct observation to make?
i have spoken to GynaeDoc and told her, she said i could be a cervix or uterus? could this be from (excuse me!) rough sex?
is there anyway you can help or advise me?

<Thanks again in advance!>

Dear Tarryn
The forum is an information site, and can never replace a doctor's consultation. You need to be seen by a doctor that can go a physical examination, an internal speculum examination and possibly a smear. Nobody can make a diagnosis when "reading between the lines" so to speak.
Pain, itchy, bleeding all those are signs that soemthing is not 100%. Please see a Health Care Provider at your local clinic or visit a GP or Gynaecologist.
The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical examination, diagnosis and formal advice.
