Avatar f tn I had brown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> for 5 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> my last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>...I had a normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>. It came when it was souppose to and lasted the usual length. The brown discharge was kinda heavy and very dark. My next period is due in 15 days. I had protected sex a few weeks before this happened,and had protected sex 2 nights prior to the brown discharge starting. after the last time I had sex I took 2 of my birth control pills that I had missed,I didn't know if that could have messed up my hormonal balances?!
Avatar m tn I think I'm going too soon though, I have been getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span>/clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> for a few months now and 2 days ago I got browny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>, is this normal? And I'm also really worried that I'm going to come on, because today it's Thursday and on Monday I'm going swimming with dolphins. I'm really worried that because I've never had my period before and I won't be able to use a tampon and won't be able to go this is a once in a life time opportunity for me and I'm really scared I can't go.
Avatar f tn So I'm usually regular on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> and about 3 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> my expected <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> date which is today I had white milky discharge that smells sweet. And today I didn't get my period, last night I had a crampy feeling in my pelvis area so I thought I was getting my period today and no period. Could I be pregnant?
Avatar n tn hey there, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is nothing to worry about, it is normal for tthis to appear both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your period and when you are in early pregnancy. I have heard of alot of women that have indeed been pregnant say that they had alot of milky no smell discharge before they got their BFP.
Avatar f tn I also have a son who was conceived from the pull out method. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> could be just normal vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> that happens <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> or after your period (just cleaning itself out), it could also be a yeast infection or some other kind of infection that can be cleared with antibiotics. If you are concerned though, and have not yet had your period, you could take a test.

Avatar n tn white discharge with Pregnancy white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is also common as an early sign of pregnancy. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> is more pronounced if pregnant due to increased oestrogen production and blood flow to the vaginal area. The white discharge expelled during early pregnancy may resemble egg white or a runny nose. The discharge is the cervical secretions that created a protective barrier in the cervical canal. This is expelled by the thinning and dilating of the cervix.
Avatar f tn is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> normal? I'm 4 days late and the day my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> was supposed to come i had period pains but just been seeing white discharge yesterday and the day before i felt i started my period then i run to the bathroom and nothing help should i be concerned?
Avatar f tn so I constantly have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> and Ive read that it is normal for people <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> they get their periods. But i am 17 and have had my period for 5 years now, and i still get discharge every single day, Ive learned to live with it, but the only thing is Im to embarrassed to have sex or even be fingered by a guy if i have this. What should I do?!!
Avatar f tn It is normal to have an increase in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> in pregnancy however it could be a sign of an infection such as a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. Some STD's also cause an increase in discharge and may have no other symptoms. If you are late for you period you can take a test and if it continues or gets worse then you should see a doctor.
Avatar f tn Perhaps talking to someone about the fact that your medications possibly are not working as well as they should and that you might need an adjustment. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is normal hormonal changes that happen to every woman from time to time. Try not to analyze your discharge and look for symptoms such as 1. itching. that could indicate a yeast infection. discharge with a yeast infection is often lumpy. or 2. foul, very noticeable smell which indicates a bacterial infection or BV.
1384186 tn?1281464166 The discharge produced during ovulation is a clear, watery and elastic, kind of like egg whites, so it doesn't seem like this is what you are experiencing. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is normal at the beginning and end of a woman's cycle, but if it's thick and clumpy (like cottage cheese) then it could mean a yeast infection, especially if it's accompanied by itching. And yes, you could have a yeast infection more than 4 times a year.
Avatar f tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> for the most part is very normal and happens to a large number of women. It's the vagina cleaning itself out and can increase during certain times in a womens cycle. Some women will notice they have it frequently (I am one of them) and some rarely get it. If it ever concerns you, you can see a doctor and discuss your concerns with them.
Avatar f tn Hello guys I am new here. Small background story I have normal periods every month. My boyfriend & I had sex 6 days ago. On the 5th day of having sex I found myself with brownish light pinkish discharge & light cramps. Today I have milky white discharge. Oh & my period isnt due for another 2 weeks. What can this be?
Avatar n tn Hi, Usually <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is perfectly normal unless accompanied by a bad odor and/or burning and itching. However, vaginal discharge usually increases around menstruation, or upon becoming pregnant. If you do think you are pregnant, I would take a home pregnancy test. The best time to get pregnant is during ovulation and you need to be familiar with your cycles in order to know when you ovulate.
Avatar n tn I have this wierd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> that has a bad odor. I get it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> and after my periods all the time. Sometimes before I'm off my period and I go to change my tampon I notice brown stuff on it instead of blood. It kind of happens all the time. A few days ago when i went to the bathroom, I noticed a white stringy substince hanging from my vagina. I wiped it way then I noticed a small clump of white stuff in my underwear. That hasn't happened before.
Avatar f tn before ovulation your CM should be egg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> like- clear and plentiful. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is normal for that time in your cycle where you are post ovulation and pre menses. Totally normal. Try looking in the fertility community for tips on getting pregnant. Sometimes it's much harder than you think. Try timed intercourse and OPKs or get a fertility monitor. You need to know when you are ovulating before you can really do anything... Good luck!
Avatar n tn please let me know if it is normal to maybe spot a few days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> is due?? It is not heavy bleeding at all, and I probably would not notice it if I was not looking for it..(I worry about my health).....I have a great deal of stress lately in my life and wondered if stress could cause spotting and no period as well?? please let me know what you all think..thanks for your help on all...
Avatar f tn Is it normal to get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> clesr vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>before</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>? It looks like im ovulating but im certain im not. Ive been on birth control and use ot properly so odds are that I am not.
Avatar f tn Twice before I took the morning after pill I had two random globs of blood and once a membrane like brown type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>. This is not something that is normal for me whatsoever. Like I said my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> was supposed to be here by now but instead, I have a very thin, yellow with a tint of brown discharge that smells like period or like a fishy odor. I cannot smell the odor unless I purposely try to... Normally before my periods, I have a very thick white discharge.
Avatar f tn TTC= Trying to conceive. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span> is indicative of some sort of vaginitis if it is not normal for you. It can be yeast or bacterial vaginosis. It can be an std if either of you had unprotected sex outside of the marriage. I would see a doctor. From personal experience...I was TTC for 8 months and then I was diagnosed with BV. I got treated and the very next month I was pregnant. Don't assume it is std related. Try to relax. Stressing is will only slow down your ability to conceive.
199914 tn?1295893647 Mucus when ovulating is clear, like raw eggwhite. It's at about day 14 after your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> begins. Creamy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> is most other times.
Avatar n tn Also, right before a woman begins her period, she gets a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> to yellowish <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>, which is also normal. This can also itch some. If there is a smell associated with the discharge, then you do have a yeast infection. Sometimes, over the counter products are ineffective at treating yeast infections. Keeping the area clean & douching after your periods can help to prevent them. Use moist toweletes intended for vaginal itching. It should help relieve your discomfort.
Avatar f tn i have always had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>white</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>discharge</span>, the only time i got other discharges was when i was ovulatig that i got the EWCM.
Avatar n tn Last month I missed a couple of pills and I started a very light <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> which lasted about 6 days and then I had my normal period for about 5 days following it. I continued taking the pill regularly with breaks of 7 days in between. This month I had my normal period. I experienced this passing of tissue 10 days after the first day of my period. I am wondering what the large piece of tissue is as I have never experienced it before.
