What can cause pale blue vaginal discharge? It was pale blue

Resolved Question:

What can cause pale blue vaginal discharge? It was pale blue streak mixed in with white. The blue was dark enough to even notice something wasn't normal. I am just finishing up my first period after going onto Seasonique birthcontrol back in July. I am 21 years old and moderately healthy. I started using tampons for the first time this period. I am sexually active. One partner only in a monogamous relationship. No chance of STDs. Last time we had sex was one week ago on 09-30. I did have a very heavy period this time around. On Monday (10-05-09) I had a lot of cramping and pain and heavy bleeding. I passed a clot about 6 inches long. Could I have been pregnant and miscarried? Could I still be pregnant? Or could this colored discharge be from using the tampons?

This sounds like a bacterial vaginosis infection (BV) - this is NOT a STD - I would rule out a pregnancy with a pregnancy test too, but unlikey you are pregnant. From the tampons - unusual. If you have an odor, then most like BV and this can be treated with flagyl or cleocin (prescription only). I hope this helps, please take care.
