I am not sure if anyone can help but here goes:

For the past 6 months, I have had a really wierd discharge, (its pale brown and like a stringy mucas- really gross!) it happens about 2 or 3 times a month, about a week after my period (which are irregular but not drasticly so).

At first I thought it was my period, just a mild one, I wore a towel- even used a tampon, but nothing.

The whole thing got heavier last month and did look like a period, but nothing there- only a tiny tiny amount and normally my periods are really really heavy. The mystery 'period' went away as soon as it started- nothing was there after changing my underware. I went to my doctors who asked if I was sexually active- nope, so she didn't do any tests other then the urine test which turned out negative, and said "it will all go away/its normal/many women have this" I beg to differ! but she wasn't having any of it.

It got worse as I say (heavier and looked more like a period), but she still doesn't want to do anything. All the doctors in my surgery are the same so I did get a second opinion who begrudginly has forwareded me to a hospital for a test, but just wondered if anyone has anything similar? or any insight into what this could be?

Just to add, I am a very healthy weight, (BMI 23) very physically active (Gym 5 days a week cardio) and eat/drink very healthily (probably too healthily- I don't do refined foods full stop!).
