Customer Question

I had a slightly red discharge about a day or two before my period, and I am worried that it might be serious. I thought that I may have made a small tear because I was rinsing out, but it was painless and no more pinkish discharge came out after that

It's very unlikely that your red discharge is from anything serious.

If you were rinsing out inside your vagina, I would recommend that you not do that. Your vaginal health will be better is you don't rinse inside.

Even if you cut yourself a little when rinsing, it's unlikely to be anything serious.

Some spotting before a period is not unusual at age 15, and it's rarely if ever a sign of anything serious.

It's is definitely not a sign of infertility.
