I am a 22 year old female in a long term relationship, no children.
About two weeks ago I suddenly got a very sharp constant pain on my left side that was very painful for a week, the pain subsided in the last few days of that week but at the start hurt a lot every time I moved, lifted my leg etc almost as if I'd pulled a muscle. Took 2 PT's in this week both were negative.
I haven't had my period this month (although have history of irregularity but past 5 months have been on time). Since the pain subsided I have had the odd sharp pain on this side and across my stomach and cramping/bloating quite badly, I had quite bad pain yesterday on the lower left side (don't normally have much period pain). Normally when I am due on my boobs swell up loads and this hasn't happened so haven't expected a period.
I've just gone to the toilet and I know this sounds awful but there is a really really foul smell from down there (never experienced anything like this) and a slightly thick orange/pink discharge and I am in a bit of pain low down in my abdomen.
I will see how I am tonight and if the situation gets worse I will call nhs direct. I've recently moved so am not registered with GP yet ( may be worth travelling back to my old GP... thanks for advice
I've just gone to the toilet and had the browny pinky discharge.. sat there for a while and wiped a few times as just didn't feel quite right and I just had a heavy bleed that stopped quickly, very shakey now and crampy.
How are you feeling now poodle? has the bleeding stopped? I know it's already been asked but are you absolutely certain there isn't a tampon? If you are definite about it (and by that I mean that you don't use them) then I'd consider seeking medical help in the morning, earlier if the bleeding increases.
