I’m 33 yrs old , yes lately my cycles have been regular, no medications , yes it’s smell like old blood but the discharge is light pink , no pain , yes little iching outside my vagina area , no frequency of urinating , no burning and yes with unprotected sex with my fiancé relationship of 2yrs.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, The light pink discharge before your periods is probably due to the slow onset of your cycle.This results in spotting as you are experiencing. Just to note the menstrual cycle is sensitive to changes in our lives.

Many things, such as a change in weight, travel, stress, surgery and even change in diet and activity can affect it. These changes can cause a change in our hormones and can result in intermenstrual bleeding.

As you have little itching so you can have some vaginal or cervical inflammation which can result in such discharge.

Now I would recommend some self-care measures like
Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
And afterward, apply OTC 0.5% hydrocortisone cream mixed with bacitracin ointment twice a day on the outside of the vagina
Clean the area with DIAL soap and use OTC Abzorb powder afterward.
And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for few days.
RepHresh Pro-B probiotic supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

Abstain from sexual activity for a week.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
