May be normal: As a rule, if a discharge does not itch, burn, irritate, have a foul odor or have blood mixed with it, it is probably a physiologic discharge. The body is healing after the miscarriage and the d/c could be normal if it has none of the features listed above. If the d/c is foul it could be a sign of an infection and warrants evaluation and treatment.
