Pinkish brown discharge?

KN1733 Asked: Pinkish brown discharge?

First off, I normally have irregular periods. Sometimes they actually are 4 weeks apart, sometimes they're 2 or 3 weeks apart. It's strange. Sometimes between those, I get a bit of brown discharge either before or after a period. I am 17 years old, so I expect this irregularity, especially because it runs in my family as well. I've had my share of yeast infections, so I know what they feel like/look like. A few days ago, I noticed one coming on the day my boyfriend and I had intercourse. We DO use condoms and make sure they have NEVER broke. He is the first guy I've ever done anything with and I am the first girl he's ever done anything with, but this is not our first time. Sometimes for 1-3 days after I'll have a little bit of reddish brown or brownish yellow discharge, but it's light and there isn't much of it. It doesn't last long at all and there is little to no discomfort. Recently, due to the yeast infection I felt coming, I bought over the counter ovule insert medication. It's a 3-Day medicine with a white "pill" insert that you put in before you go to bed for three days. I haven't used this brand before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Brands I used previously gave a lot of white, creamy discharge from the medicine expelling itself and the yeast, (gross, I know, but hey that's life). This time however, because I had intercourse a day before I started using the medicine, I had a bit of yellowish/brownish/reddish discharge that was very, very light. It's been four days since the intercourse and tonight will be the third day (and final day) for the medicine. The discharge is a bit heavier, but it's still very light (just heavier than previously). I am due for a period between the first and second week of September (as it is the final day of August, currently), so naturally I'm expecting this to be an early/light period. Though the discharge is pinkish in colour, now, and I've heard stories of pinkish discharge that I would not like to take part in. I'm assuming it's just the white medicine mixing with the reddish/brownish/yellowish light discharge I had prior, making the colour more pink now, but I don't know. I have to get a physical next week for a new job I'm starting, so I'm thinking about asking the doctor then, if the problem persists/doesn't get better/gets worse.
Any ideas, comments, or suggestions?
Thank you so much! I appreciate it greatly!

I have the same problems as well (i'm 17 too) and i went to go ask my doctor about it and she just said that your body is showing you that you're ovulating. She told me not to worry about it. But either way, go to the doctor.
