Clear Stringy Discharge After Period
Discharge can be a noun or a verb; it has multiple meanings in physics, chemistry, military, and legal usage. The most common medical meaning is a substance that is being excreted. Examples: pus is the discharge from a pimple; a vaginal discharge can mean infection; an ear discharge can mean an infection of the outer ear tract; a nasal discharge ...Read more
Dry blood: The brown color in the discharge is probably old blood that can be seen a week after a period. If you start have pain or the discharge smells bad then you need to be seen by a gyn.
Low achy abd. Pain on and off. Brown stringy discharge just over a week after period every time. I'm on the pill, what are possibilities this could b?
Infection in your: Vagina, uterus and fallopian tubes can cause this. See your gyn for a thorough assessment!
Pink discharge: It is common for menses to 'tail off" over several days after one thinks that her period has truly ended. Slight pinkish d/c should not be alarming in one or two settings. However, if persistent, I would recommend to ensure your pap screen is up to date, and consider a pelvic us to ensure no other issues exist (ie; polyps).
Metrarrhagia: For your age group, you have spotting after regular period can be hormone inbalance vs, infection if have negative pap within months; otherwise if reoccur more than three months you should have to see your doctor.
Cleaning the Uterus: Sometimes the uterus has old de-oxygenated blood to rid itself of. This is dark or brown discharge and is a common post period process.
Don't worry: This brownish discharge is the final remnants of your periods. The final tiny bits of endometrial tissue that are being shed. It should stop soon. If not, see your doctor.
Probably BV: Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of vaginal discharge and odor. It is not a sexually transmitted disease but rather an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. When the vagina is exposed to blood for long periods of time as you describe this raises the ph of the vagina making bacterial vaginosis more likely.
Probably not: Some of the blood may take longer to be released from the uterus. That is usually not a sign of problems. If your are concerned, see your doctor.
See a Doctor: Make sure to get checked for infection. Some women may be allergic to their sanitary napkins or tampons used during menses. Use hypoallergenic pads or tampons. Do not leave tampons in your vagina for longer than 4 hours.
Probably normal: One day of brown spotting after a period is normal. It should not be black discharge and should not be heavy. Multiple days of tail end brown bleeding is not normal but may still be difficult to diagnose and treat.
Irregular bleeding: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
