Okay so I had my period about 2weeks ago...and yesterday I started bleeding again... Its bright red and looks like it has a little bit mucus or clear slimy stuff in it maybe? Well I'm not having any cramping...all my preg tests are negative I have had unprotected sex but he also pulled out too. So I'm a little concerned what this might be? Please help ladies!

It could be implant bleeding. Wait a week or two then test again. Good luck.

I would guess implant bleeding, or a wonky period.  Good luck!

I beilieve I had an early miscarriage last year, but I had the worst cramping and bleeding of my life for 2 weeks. If it hadn't stopped, I was going to go to the doctor, but I didn't have insurance and couldn't afford to go to the doctor.

It could just be a off period. It happens at times.

 I'm confused here...if he pulled out, logic would lead me to think that you aren't ttc - or at least he isnt.  But you now are hoping that it's implant bleeding?  If you guys ARE TTC, why would he pull out......  Is this a spouse or a boyfriend?

Seven Warning Signs of a Sexually Transmitted Disease

According to the CDC (2000), an estimated 15 million people each year contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Treatment and prevention is essential in preventing long term complications. STDs if left untreated can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, infertility, and multiple complications for newborns whose mother transmits the disease to them. Below is a list of warning signs of STDS that no woman should ignore.

1. A sore, wart, or rash in the genital area of you or your partner

This may seem like an obvious warning sign, but unfortunately it is often ignored. Skin rashes and lesions often come on at the onset of a sexually transmitted disease, but the lesions may disappear within a few days. However, the infection itself is left untrested. The person assumes it was an allergic reaction or normal skin irritation and does not investigate the real possibility of having an STD. If you notice a rash or lesion you or your partner it is essential to have an STD workup done.

2. Painful or frequent urination

Painful or frequent urination is one of the most common symptoms of STDs particularly gonnorhea. Women often mistake this symptom as a sign of having a urinary tract infection. They may try home remedies such as drinking cranberry juice or taking mild pain relievers such aas Tylenol. Unfortunately, as with genital sores, these symptoms may appear at the onset of the disease and then disappear. This leaves the person still infected and untreated. Any time you experience urgency, burning, or pain on urination a visit to the doctor is warranted.

3. Abnormal period

An abnormal period is another sign of an STD. If you notice increased flow or pain at menses, this may indicate an STD. If your period has always been regular and you experience bleeding at an unsual time this is also something that my need to be investigated. Heavy and prolonged bleeding should not be ignored.

4. Abnormal discharge

With an STD, women may notice increased vaginal discharge. There may be other causes such as a yeast infection or vaginitis. If you've never had a yeast infection before, now is not the time to start self diagnosing. Get in and get it looked at.

5. Pelvic pain

Other symptoms of STDs are easier to ignore than this one. Pelvic pain can range from mild to severe. If you are experiencing pelvic pain, especially in combination with other symptoms, contact your health care provider.

6. Foul odor

Funky or unusual odor may be cause for concern. Using feminine hygiene products may cover up the odor, but they will not treat an underlying infection. Although this may be embarassing to discuss with your health care provider, it is important to get a proper diagnosis.

7. No symptoms

Women quite frequently have no noticeable symptoms at all. Eighty percent of women with gonorrhea have no symptoms until the disease is advanced. All women should have annual pap smears. If you are sexually active, discuss with your health care provider including an STD work up with your annual exam.

Preventing Sexually Transmitted Diseases

STDs are largely preventable. Taking the following precautions can lower your chances of contracting an STD

  • Always use a new condom during sexual intercourse.
  • Put condom on when partner is erect and before any genital contact.
  • Use only water based lubricants, ie KY Jelly. Oil based lubricants such as vaseline and lotions can cause condoms to weaken or break.
  • Withdraw penis while still erect, holding the condom firmly at the base.
  • Female condoms can also be used.
  • Spermicides such as contraceptive films, foams, or gels are not effective in preventing STDs
  • STDs, particularly genital herpes, can be spread through oral sex. A dental damn or condom should be used at all times during oral-genital contact.

Not all STDs can be cured. HIV, herpes, and human papiloma virus (hpv) or gential warts are examples of STDs that cannot be cured at this time. Gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis can be treated with antibiotics. It is imperative that both you and your partner are treated. Take any and all prescribed medication. You should abstain from all sexual contact until you and your partner are disease free. A follow up visit is usually required to determine this.
