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

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?

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

Late period: If your period is late, it's time to take home pregnancy test, assuming that you've engaged in unprotected sex. Vaginal discharge can also be due to sexually transmitted diseases. So if discharge returns and home pregnancy test is negative, it's time to see your Family Doc or GYN. ...Read more
