Blood in DD's pants and she is only six????

This morning I my dd was doing a wee and said "look mum, whats that?" and pointed at her pants.

There was a very small amount of sticky discharge about the size of two adult thumbnails. Because she had pink pants on I thought it was just maybe a bit of wee that looked like blood on pink material so I wet another part of her pants but you can def see it is blood stain discharge. It was slightlt sticky.

There was no pain or no smell.

Because I was worried about it I asked dd later of she had any pain and she said a little bit but you never know with kids. Whenever she senses you think there is somthing wrong they go with it.

She said there is no pain there.

She is very lethargic and has just got over a virus that she had for 7 days with a fever.

She had to have nurofen for 7 days, you dont think this is related?

Or you dont think she could be starting her periods? That would be awful!

Anyone experience this with a young girl, I'm hoping it was just a one off and her bodies hormones are just kicking in.

I am going to speak to my Gp on Monday but thought I would check here first to see if anyone else has experienced this.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

I would take her to the Doctors this weekend in case she has got some urinary tract infection or some problem like that (am not medical in any way, just guessing) The fever and virus may be linked.

I think if it was precocious puberty you would see other signs first - breast development, pubic hair etc. AFAIK pp follows pattern of 'normal' puberty. So would be unlikely to get period out of the blue

Obv go see yr gp and ask about referral to endocrinolist

her fever ended on thursday.

can she have a UTI without symptoms?

back in early sep we thought she had a urine infection as it hurt when she did a wee and so she had an antibiotic.

this time it was a virus she picked up with cough and sore throat but she didnt have an antibiotic.

i think i would like to get her referred to an endocrinologist as this has been going on for awhile now. last year there was about three months where she complained her vagina hurt at night and when she went to toilet, she had two different antibiotics and creams and nothing helped. In the end it just stopped, couple of months ago it started again and I took her back to docs. she has nother antibotic as she had fever with it. all stopped then next week it hurt when she went to wee so doc said he wanted to try a cream first but we never used it as she said it was no longer hurting. he said with these things you can not be referred until they have tried everything first?

if i take her to an out of hours gp they will just straight away give her an antibotic. i dont like to just give them her to see if they help. if she had a temp still then of course i would but no temp or pain?

Maybe it's time you pushed to see an endocrinologist, then, if she's had a run of related things.
DD2 used to get all sorts of thrush related infections, and in the end we were going to have her referred, but they just cleared up.
I think, though, that you're not going to get to see anybody without trying an antibiotic first, and you never know, it might do the trick.
Definitely take her back to the GPs though - try and explain how worried you are that it keeps happening.
