Hi, I have been having a weird problem and I'm just looking for some ideas on what could be causing this... For the last week or two, sex has been painful. It's a slight burning feeling on the inside whenever I try to have sex. A couple days ago, I started getting a light brown mixed with clear discharge. These are really my only symptoms -- no itching or anything. Usually I would assume brown discharge = spotting or period starting, but my periods are pretty regular and it shouldn't be coming until around February 10. Also, I have a Paragard, so if my period were on its way, I would know, because of the cramps.
