During pregnancy a female body undergoes a host of changes including physiological and anatomical. These changes are often associated with manifestation of a host of symptoms which can be bothersome or worry some in some cases. It is however important to understand some common facts about pregnancies, especially when it is associated with any form of discharge.
- Early pregnancy is one of the most dangerous times in the whole pregnancy cycle. This is the time when most miscarriages occur. Thus, any form of discharge during this period is worth noting.
The nature of the discharge is often indicative of the underlying pathology. A clear and watery discharge should not be a cause of concern; however a bloody or brownish discharge should be taken more seriously. It is best to consult your physician or gynecologist to verify the cause of the discharge and get it treated promptly, in order to continue with the pregnancy.
Pink And Brown Watery Discharge In Early Pregnancy
A tinge of pink in the water discharge could be first sign of bleeding or an impending miscarriage.
- A brown watery discharge might indicate implantation bleeding in very early pregnancy. This is not dangerous and should not alarm the would-be mother unless the brown watery discharge continues for several months and/or the discharge is plenty.
- Still, old blood can be left in the uterus from the implantation and the body does not react immediately but takes some months before the expulsion of this blood occurs. If worried, the mother can always consult a doctor.
Watery Bleeding In Early Pregnancy
- Watery bleeding, especially when very bright red, should be a cause for alarm. This is one of the surest signs of a miscarriage. Pain may or may not accompany the discharge.
Causes Of Bleeding In Early Pregnancy
Here are some important causes of bleeding or discharge during the early phase of pregnancy,
- The bleeding may be caused by implantation or hormonal changes in which case there is no need to worry about. This form of bleeding may resolve spontaneously within a few days and often associated with mild abdominal discomfort. If the problem disappears, there is no need to worry.
- If the bleeding is caused by a miscarriage, it is best to go to a hospital as soon as possible. Such form of bleeding is usually very profuse associated with severe and debilitating pain in the abdomen.
- Often brownish discharge may be observed, which may be a combination of watery mucus and some old ruminants of blood. Excessive production of mucus is common during pregnancy, primarily due to hormonal changes, however if the problem persists, it is recommended to consult your physician immediately.
Stress and anxiety can further exemplify the problem and hence it is best to maintain optimum composure, especially during the initial months of pregnancy.
