Is having a reddish discharge while wiping during pregnancy ok?13 weeks along and ob said everything looked fine. Happened again today. Can straining do that?

Not sure.: What you are describing sounds like some light spotting, and your OB would be able to give you reassurance if things are ok. Sometimes sex can cause spotting, but you might not know the exact cause, and it might not be related to anything you are doing. Straining can cause hemorrhoids and sometimes these can bleed. Avoid straining, and talk to your doctor more about your concerns. ...Read more

More than average: The average weight gain during pregnancy is 25 pounds. But of course, this is for women that start at an average weight. Your weight is low, but close to 'ideal' when based solely on your height. A 25-35 pound weight gain will be your goal. Unless your doctor has placed you on restriction or you have had recent vaginal bleeding/cramping/rupture of membranes, sex during pregnancy should be fine. ...Read more

Pd due 2days ago, day3 now only cramps & very light unusual pink/brown watery discharge or nothing at all. Missed BC during ovul. Possible pregnancy?

Possible: Any time you miss pills you decrease your protection and unprotected intercourse can result in pregnancy. The delay in your period may just be because of the missed pills but check a pregnancy test to be sure and if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days. Continue your pills and you might try setting an alarm in your phone to help you remember them. Good luck. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with hpv during pregnancy and I bleed 24/7 and when I'm not bleeding I have a brown discharge with skin like particles. HELP?

Hi, I am 5-6 weeks pregnant n having light brown watery discharge only when I go to pass urineonly, 1-2 drops. Is it ok during early stage of pregnancy.

Common symptom: Brown spotting early in pregnancy is really common. I worry when it's bright red and accompanied by cramping. There is a risk of miscarriage with every conception, and there really isn't anything to do at this point but to wait. Be reassured that the odds are in your favor that all will go well. ...Read more
