Oddly, they only occur if I don't shave at least twice a week. I've also had a dark brown discharge
that lasts at least 2 days after my period. It's sort of thick
and there's no blood in it. It does not have a strong odor, but it does smell different than menstrual blood. Another thing is that I have a clear liquid (sometimes gooey, usually water-like) discharge practically every day. I've experienced all of this since I hit puberty, which is about six years now.
