Discuss with surgeon: In some instances this may be a sign of other disease but most likely benign. You may need a follow up colonoscopy or biopsy but this will be determined by your physician, .

Learning about Body: Then your signs are not pregnancy and you have not learned what they mean. Since you did not share even one of the symptoms you are concerned about then we cannot comment further. You are not pregnant. Thus the symptoms you are feeling are not pregnancy.

Consider a preg test: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex, or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test a few days later. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.

Probably normal: Changes in menstrual flow are frequent and do no signify anything wrong in most instances. Irregularity to menstrual cycles is seen in 15% of "normal" women during any given cycle.

Its OK: Often the uterus bleeds easier just after your period if it is exposed to trauma. It sounds pretty minimal in amount and no other symtoms. I would not worry about it. It is pretty common.

Have an IUD (mirena)inserted, having pink mucus discharge for 4 days. Period not due until oct4th last period was sept 4-9th. But I haven't spotted before?

Have an IUD (mirena)inserted, having pink mucus discharge for 4 days. Period not due until oct4th last period was sept 4-9th. But I haven't spotted before?

Schedule IUD check: Bleeding on Mirena (levonorgestrel) is highly variable. Most bleed and spot for the first few weeks and then periods dramatically lighten with 50% not having a period by 1 year. There is wide variations in the bleeding pattern typical of Progesterone only methods. Irregular bleeding is expected and does not mean the iud does not work. If you are concerned please schedule an iud check with your obgyn.

40 no periods for 3 months but pink mucus discharge no foul smell. Last visit to for pap smear 12 months ago and all clear. Why have my periods stop?

Check for pregnancy: After you have ruled that out you may consider other causes. You are still a little young to be starting menopause, and there are a number of other possibilities. See your doctor.

I have had clear mucus discharge sometimes it's brown tinged I don't have a normal mentatrul cycle usual 45 days apart, is the mucus normal?

I have had clear mucus discharge sometimes it's brown tinged I don't have a normal mentatrul cycle usual 45 days apart, is the mucus normal?

Yes.: Clear mucous discharge is normal. The discharge comes from mucous glands in the vaginal and vulvar areas. The brown tinge to the mucous might NOT be normal however. It's probably coming from the endometrium, the inner lining of the uterus. Since your periods are irregular, you might have an abnormal build-up of endometrium. Please make an appt. With your Gyno!
