My period was 8 days late. On Saturday night I noticed brown and pink discharge. Sunday morning I had heavy bleeding that stopped Monday night.

5 weeks pregnant and had a small amount of pink discharge when wiping. So far no heavy bleeding and minor cramping. Is this normal?

5 weeks pregnant and had a small amount of pink discharge when wiping. So far no heavy bleeding and minor cramping. Is this normal?

Probably yes: Slight spotting early on in pregnancy is not at all uncommon. Frequently it is associated with the embryo implanting in the uterine wall. Nevertheless, concern is understandable. It is wise to avoid coitus and very strenuous activity/exercise for a bit and to followed closely by your ob. An ultrasound or quant. Hcg blood test can be reassuring. Good luck! ...Read more

My bf ejaculated outside my vagina. Like 2weeks agothis week I only bleed heavy&today I got pink discharge when I would wipe now its over. What is this?

Can become pregnant: If you have intercourse, you can become pregnant, so I suggest a pregnancy test if you bleeding looks different from your usual menses. It may be too early for a reliable home pregnancy test result, so you may need to repeat the test in 2 weeks. See you doctor if periods don't normalize. ...Read more

10 days ago I started a week early and was very light and watery. Bleeding was on and off for 2 days. Today is pink discharge when I wipe. Ideas?

Fluctuations in the: menstrual cycles are VERY common and, most of the time, aren't a cause for concern. The interaction between hormones, reproductive organs and the brain are so complex & require such careful orchestration that it amazes me that many women have regular cycles. Unless you have pain, discharge,
persistent irregularities or a (+) pregnancy test, no worries. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Scan said everything was good with fetus today, bleeding though and dr isn't worried what can cause brown/pink discharge?

Scan said everything was good with fetus today, bleeding though and dr isn't worried what can cause brown/pink discharge?

Bleeding/Pregnant: If you are bleeding and your doctor isn't as concerned, it may be that the bleeding isn't from the uterus but from the cervix. If you had a sonogram that showed that all was well with the fetus, there was no blood around the sac and there isn't any separation of the sac, this is more encouraging. Still, you should continue to monitor the bleeding and let your doctor know if it gets heavier. ...Read more

I am having pink discharge two weeks after taking plan b after I already had bleeding from plan b already, could this discharge still be plan b?

I am having pink discharge two weeks after taking plan b after I already had bleeding from plan b already, could this discharge still be plan b?

Yes: Plan B can cause irregular bleeding and spotting until after your next normal period, just because of how it plays with your hormones. Just to be sure, you may want to check another pregnancy test. And if you have any cloudy discharge, odor, itch, pelvic pain, or fever, get checked for STDs. ...Read more

Hi! I am 5 days late and had light pink discharge. Very little. Have all the symptoms. Had many neg hpt tests &1 blood test before light bleeding?

Hormonal imbalance: If the blood test for HCG was negative after a missed period and a correctly done hpt was negative at 5 days after missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may repeat the hpt in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Had a polypectomy/d&c 6 days ago, light pink discharge but not "bleeding" Is it ok to have sex or should I wait until the discharge is clear to resume?

Wait: After a surgical procedure like "instrumentation of the uterus" it is prudent to wait with intercourse until symptoms have completely resolved to be sure that there is no increased risk of infection from the procedure in addition to a potential risk of infection from intercourse, particularly when without condom, in itself. ...Read more

Had light bleeding/spotting for 3-4 days with no cramping. Then light pink discharge and spotting for a hour. What can this be?

Could be irregular: Period, it could be a very early miscarriage. It is important to know if you were trying to get pregnant, or possibly could be. Abnormal of 'funny' periods can happen from time to time. The only way to tell if a very early pregnancy caused the spotting is by very sensitive blood tests done when you may not even know you are pregnant. ...Read more

I had pink discharge only when I wipe. It lasted for one day. It was implantation bleeding but pregnancy result was negative. Is this normal?

Implantation bleed: Implantation bleeding is much more common on the internet than in real life. It occurs rarely and exclusively in someone who is pregnant. The only way to know if someone had implantation bleeding or just irregular menstrual bleeding is to wait and see if you are pregnant. If your test is positive then this was implantation bleeding. If it is negative then it is just irregular menstrual bleeding. ...Read more

My past 4periods were regular, I expect my period the15 but the 12 I had pink discharge followed by slightly red can it be Imp bleeding or earlyperiod?

Hard to know: Most women don't bleed with implantation but when it does occur it is usually a tiny amount. It looks like you are two days from your anticipated period. You could take an early response type pregnancy test now or if you miss your period when anticipated - just take a regular pregnancy test. Take care. ...Read more

Am I miscarrrying or is this normal? I am 9.5 weeks pregnant and have been bleeding (started 2 days ago as brownish pink discharge and is now bright

Brown = blood: Any bleeding during pregnancy needs to be evaluated promptly by your doctor. About 50% of women experience some degree of bleeding in early pregnancy making it very common but not normal. Most are fine but sometimes bleeding can indicate a tubal pregnancy or miscarriage. Get checked. ...Read more

Am I having implatation bleeding or a early miscarriagefinished my period on the 17 and noticed brown/pink discharge on 22 and had 4 positive pg test?

Early pregnancy test: Implantation bleeding happens very commonly. The only real way to answer whether this is an early miscarriage or not is to monitor HCG levels - the quantity of pregnancy hormone in the blood. In early pregnancy the amount of HCG should rise rapidly - approximately double every 2 days. This can give useful information much earlier than a pregnancy can often be seen on ultrasound. ...Read more

I've had NuvaRing for 8 yrs. This past cycle I had my period. I put the ring in and kept bleeding for another week. I've been having brown/pink discharge while the ring is in. Is this normal? I've never had these symptoms

I've had NuvaRing for 8 yrs. This past cycle I had my period. I put the ring in and kept bleeding for another week. I've been having brown/pink discharge while the ring is in. Is this normal? I've never had these symptoms

Not exactly normal: At your age, I am not alarmed, and occasional menstrual irregularities are quite common on hormonal birth control. So if this month is the only time this happens, and if things go back to normal next month, then I wouldn't worry. However, continued irregular bleeding could indicate a problem (infection, polyp, hormonal issue, etc). So I would see a GYN if it happens again. ...Read more
