Unhappy A question about period and mucus like stuff..

I'm 17, very sexually active, and i've been on BC for almost a year now. I've only had two partners, one i'm with now. A few months into BC (i take pills) i started getting brown discharge with no odor..i looked it up and saw it could be old blood...no problem. But it started lasting a week before my period and became to me a problem. Sometimes i also spot bled but i figured it was from too rough of sex. The brown would also be almost black sometimes, which some sites also said could be normal, but i really dont like it. :[

I got switched to a higher dose of BC three months ago, the first two months were fine, even though i still got a little brown discharge. At the end of the third month, i got the brown w/ no odor for about 3 days before my period, which im on now. Tonight i wiped and there was blood and what looked like a white-ish mucus, and theres not a bad odor, it just smells kinda like sex, which i usually get on my period (even before BC) just means i need a shower. I looked up the mucus and saw it could be normal, but it just seems every month something gets worse! I just want to have a normal period again, no blood and definitly no mucus. Do you think it could be an infection, or is it normal? Will it go away? I was thinking of going to shots instead of pills but i cant do it till im 18. Please help. =[ Im afraid of what my boyfriend will think, even though im sure he'll understand, it's just gross though.

You may want to ask your ob/gyn about changing to another pill if it continues. Should stop the spotting. Sometimes it takes a while to find which pill works best for you.

Re: A question about period and mucus like stuff..

I dont know who my ob/gyn is, and i couldnt go alone b/c im 17. My mom doesn't know im on the pill cuz I get it from the Health Department. I dont want to tell her b/c i think she'll make me stop seeing him. I think she knows im on the pill though, but im just scared to see what she will say when i actually tell her. XD I know thats not good, but i believe i'm at a point in life where i can make decisions like that on my own.

But i'll go as soon as i turn 18, which is only about 4 months away. Either that or i'll just ask my mom to take me, which is gonna take all the bravery in me haha. Thank you for the feedback though!
