I`m 15 and i recently noticed brown discharge on my pad I`ve read alot of other pages with little help because they talk about HIVs, pregnancy, and menopause. I`m a virgin, i don`t take a pill, and i don`t mastribate. what`s causing this?
The brown discharge is likely old blood. If this wasn't around your period, then it was likely some breakthrough bleeding. You could have a yeast infection or other irritation causing some bleeding. You should look for persistence or additional symptoms and see your doctor of this happens.
