Bloody discharge

Sweetpea0 profile image

I have had bloody discharge for four days, I'm getting very worried. I can't see a gp until Friday. It's not my period as it finished last week.

It ranges from brown/pink/ dark pink and red. It looks like I will start a period but it isn't.

I did have a thought, could it be my copper coil? It was inserted over a year ago though. Most info says you can have that after a few months of it inserted but not over a year.

Internet answers are scaring me.

If anyone has had anything simular please let me know. Thanks

If this accompanied by pain or any other unusual symptom, ring your GP for advice before Friday.

Some women experience brown discharge for a day or two after their period ends. Others have brown discharge that comes and goes for a week or two. It really just depends on how well your uterus sheds its lining and the speed at which it exits your body. Everyone is different.

I know you mentioned you have a coil but is there a possibility you could be pregnant?
