10 days post d and c. No more bleeding. White discharge. No itch, smell. Could it be ovulation, would hCG be back to 0?

10 days post d and c. No more bleeding. White discharge. No itch, smell. Could it be ovulation, would hCG be back to 0?

Probably not: It is a little early still for ovulation and what you are seeing probably simply reflects your body getting back to normal. Your HCG may already be back to normal (less than 5) but that depends on how high it was to begin with and how thorough the D&C was. ...Read more

I had a d & c 7 weeks ago, i had my period 5 weeks after d & c and 2 weeks after my period, i started having brown discharge. Is this normal?

I had a d & c 7 weeks ago, i had my period 5 weeks after d & c and 2 weeks after my period, i started having brown discharge. Is this normal?

Discharge: Well, it's unusual to have brown discharge which is suggestive of blood after a normal period. However, in your case, the period after the D&C may not be considered a usual one as it was the first after the procedure. Brown blood suggests old blood, so i would not necessarily worry unless you're having other symptoms such as pain or discharge other than blood or fever. Just wait until next period. ...Read more

Is it normal that after miscarriage and d&c following 1 and 2nd period starts with a bit brown discharge?

Is it normal that after miscarriage and d&c following 1 and 2nd period starts with a bit brown discharge?

Can be: After a miscarriage/d&c, it can be common for your period to be different in bleeding pattern. Often periods are of a different length (shorter or longer), with more or less bleeding. It is hard to predict after being pregnant and losing the pregnancy what the body will do in healing. A brown discharge can be "old blood".But if it continues or you have other symptoms, especially pain/fever, be seen. ...Read more

Maybe, maybe not: Pregnancy is always a possibility in a woman in her fertile years. Urine pregnancy tests are available at any drugstore, and are very accurate if done correctly, and done after a missed period or 3 weeks after when conception might have happened. A woman can also go to a primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor for testing. Changes in mucus, discharge, and cramps can occur without a pregnancy. ...Read more
