Hi,Im 20.I lost my virginity two weeks ago.I had difficulties during my first intercourse,lots of pain during penetration and I even thought I may have kind of a vaginismus.
Now its my 26th day of cycle and I figured out brown spots on my underwear in last three days.I use no hormonal contraceptives and my intercourse was protected by using two candoms.
I am realy concerned and I realy appreciate your guidance.
lots of thanks

Hello. Thank you for posting.

We cannot know why you are spotting. We can say that many things can cause spotting, before or after a period. A delayed or partial period, ovulation, stress, vaginal dryness. I'd not be concerned if otherwise, you feel fine. It's likely that your period is due soon.
