black discharge...

Jul 29, 2012

im 13. still a virgin, but i do masturbate. for a couple of days now i've been getting black/brown discharge instead of my period. why is this? should i go see a doctor about it?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi If you are still a virgin and have not put yourself at risk then anything you are experiencing is not HIV related. When your period first begins it can be different. If this continues I would recommend you seeing your health care provider to see if there may be something else going on or if this is normal for your body.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
