I have lots of clear vaginal discharge on my panties no matter how many times I shower or change them. I'm 5 days post ovulation. Could I be preg?

Possible: Around the time of ovulation and a few days past your cervical mucus is usually abundant and quite thin to allow better sperm motility. Probably a bit early to start checking pregnancy test, but good luck if this is what you want ...Read more

Clear non sticky but wet disscharge 5 days after ovulation?

Clear non sticky but wet disscharge 5 days after ovulation?

Not post ovulation?: Since it is normally not that easy to tell exactly when you are ovulating based on symptoms alone, I am thinking you may have misinterpreted a symptom. What you describe is a characteristic pre-ovulation symptom. Be careful as you may be very fertile right now! ...Read more

Three days after ovulation, my cervical mucus is still stringy and like egg-white with a brown tinge to it. Why?

Three days after ovulation, my cervical mucus is still stringy and like egg-white with a brown tinge to it. Why?

These are: Mysteries hard to explain. Are you sure when u ovulated? Are you sure that the mucus gets firm immediatly after ovulation. Are u sure it's not vaginal discharge or infection? There is no clear answer 2 your question but it is not likely to be a problem. Are u trying to conceive and gauging your cervical mucus? If so you are gonna go crazy, try to relax. ...Read more

I am on my third week of my BC pill and noticed brown discharge with some blood 3 days after sex. Could have ovulating? What could be the cause?

Unlikely.: Sure, you can be ovulating for the first one to two months even after starting birth control pills however a brown discharge would not be an indication of ovulation. For the first month it's recommended that you use a condom unless you start the medications on the first day of your period. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex 12 days ago (he pulled out). I ovulated 3 days ago, since then there has been a milky brown discharge. Should I be concerned?

Possibly: Pull out method is not effective for birth control. Although chances of becoming pregnant are highest right around ovulation - pregnancy is still possible outside of that time parameter. Take care. ...Read more

Period on jan 10 ended jan 15 and I ovulated jan 25...7 days later brown discharge it lasted for 7 days now it's turning white.

Sounds Normal: Sounds like a normal ovulatory cycle, depending on how you confirmed ovulation. If your kit turned positive on day 15/16, then ovulation would occur 1-2d later which would be a little late. The discharges are non-specific and don't really tell us anything in particular. ...Read more

My cycle is 26 days. Monthly I have brown discharge from the day 9 to 15 of my cycle. I need to know which day I ovulate. What is the cause of the blood.

My cycle is 26 days. Monthly I have brown discharge from the day 9 to 15 of my cycle. I need to know which day I ovulate. What is the cause of the blood.

Brown: Brown discharge is old blood, and it's possible that it's just blood left over from your period that's making its way out of your vagina at that time. Bright red blood, of course, is active bleed. Given that your cycle is regular, you could try ovulation predictor kit starting day 9-14. It's possible the brown spotting isn't interfering with your cycle at all. ...Read more

Brownish discharge: If you are around cycle day 13 (5 + 8) it is reasonable to assume ovulation. If you don't wish to become pregnant I suggest using contraception at this time in your cycle. ...Read more

Ovulated&had sex 5 days ago. Had brown discharge like spotting on day4&now have pink spotting on day 5.Started BC 15 days ago. Implantation/breakthrough?

Spotting: Could be either. BC is usually effective after 7 days so you were on the cusp. Would wait 4-10 more days and check HCG (may need to repeat in 2 weeks and or get sonogram). Follow up w/doc. ...Read more

What could be causing this brown discharge? I used opks this month and believe I ovulated around the 12th or 13th of november. My cycles have pretty much stayed 37 days. Which would mean I should start my period today (11/25/11). Well starting on 11/21/201

This: This discharge was probably the beginning of your menses (period), it is not uncommon for the initial bleeding and the final day of bleeding to be brown in color. If you have an odor or irritation then you may be dealing with a bacterial infection.
By the date of this post about a week has passed. Did you start your period? Do you still have persistent discharge? If so please visit your doctor for evaluation and testing. ...Read more

Prob your period: The brown discharge was likely your period just a very different one. Brown equals old blood. It is common to have an "off' cycle every now and then. If your pregnancy test is negative then you are not pregnant. Schedule a visit for birth control if you do not want to be pregnant. ...Read more

I've been really emotional this month. Tomorrow I'm supposed to ovulate. Today I had light brown discharge. This has never happened before is it normal?

I've been really emotional this month. Tomorrow I'm supposed to ovulate. Today I had light brown discharge. This has never happened before is it normal?

Light brown d/c: Light brown vaginal discharge can happen when old (deoxygenated) blood comes out. It can also happen with some kinds of infection. If you also have burning, irritation, or bad-smelling discharge, please see your physician. Your doctor can also help you with the intense emotionality some women experience with pms -- but that generally falls in the week or so before (not after) a menstrual period. ...Read more
