Can I still get leukorrhea with an ectopic pregnancy?

Can I still get leukorrhea with an ectopic pregnancy?

Hormonal effect: I would tend to see this as a completely different problem that the ectopic pregnancy itself, and should be the least of your worries. If you have been identified as having an ectopic, you should be receiving treatment now. Once the ectopic has been addressed, if the leukorrhea does not resolve, then this needs further evaluation as well.

I am 5 weeks pregnant. Up to this point I had lots of leukorrhea. All of the sudden is stopped, does this mean that my pregnancy is not progressing?

Building a Barrier: Just as soon as you ovulate (in order to get pregnant) you begin a change in your cervical mucous that creates a barrier to prevent the upward transmission of pathogens from the vagina into the uterus (a mucous plug). Some of that discharge could just be extra up until the plug is established. Hard to say, but I don't think anything is wrong here.

What causes leukorrhea disease?

What causes leukorrhea disease?

Vaginal discharge: Leukorrhea is not a disease. It is excess vaginal discharge. Most often, it is a symptom of high estrogen (physiologic) such as pregnancy. It could also be from an inflammatory condition of vagina or cervix. In cases where it is yellow/green or malodorous, you would need to see a doctor since it could be a sign of several disease processes, such as a common bacterial infection or an STI.

Take a test: The easiest way to find out if you are pregnant is to check a home pregnancy test. Pick one up at the store and get an answer quick. I would not think this type of discharge would be related to pregnancy. After checking your pregnancy test see your doctor for testing for the discharge.
