Odd brown/grey discharge after unprotected test.

Resolved Question:

Hi, I stupidly had unprotected sex on 2nd, 5th and 14th Aug after each I took the morning after pill. My period started on 15th Aug till 20th. I had, protected, sex on 20th and had slight bleeding after, had sex again on 21st and bled more noticeably after, the condom was red afterI would bleed about 10 minutes later and put in a tampon each time but all that came out was brown/grey. I have not bled since but when I out a tampon in it comes out with this odd discharge. I don't know what it is, It doesn't seem to be coming out, but if something is put in. I used an ear bud this morning to check if it was still there and it came out with it so have put another tampon in. This happened yesterday but it's not enough to fill the tampon and whatever it is never comes out on to a pad, so not really sure. I have order an STD test so will do that to check and took a preg test but it was negative. Not really sure what's going on but now starting to get freaked out! Some advice would be great, thanks

First of all , repeated and frequent intake of the morning after pill is ineffective, will mess up your periods ( like it already has ! ) and just adds up side effects instead of providing reliable contraception.
In future, please use reliable contraception, and avoid use of the morning after pill.
The spotting is mostly due to the 3 dosages of- the morning after pill.
Just have an STD screen as you have rightly decided to do.
Also, such spotting, particularly after sex, could indicate a cervical condition -erosion, cervicitis ( infection ), a polyp, growth etc.
In addition to an STD screening, it is best to have a thorough gynecological evaluation.
This would include an internal exam - per vaginum and per speculum.
Also, a pelvic transvaginal ultrasound scan.
A Pap smear also should be done.
Stress, anxiety, hypothyroidism, erratic eating, late nights, smoking, drinking, travelling, exercise - all this too can cause spotting.
All the best
