Should I be worried about brown discharge when I'm pregnant?


Answer by  Daisyfly (65)

It depends on the amount of discharge and how far along you are in the pregnancy. Early on a small amount of brownish discharge may be considered normal as it is not uncommon for some woman to still have period like spotting in the first trimester.


Answer by  naturalmom (211)

An increase in discharge is normal in pregnancy but if you are experiencing discharge that is bright red, brown, or malodorous it is best to bring this to the attention of your physician as it could be a sign of an underlying problem. Good luck!

Brown discharge during early pregnancy is normal, it is in fact old blood from periovious periods or could be caused by implantation of the embryo into the wall of the uterus.

Any kind of discharge that looks similar to blood should be taken seriously. You should have a doctor check you out. Don't worry, sometimes it's a false alarm.
