    Red face TMI!!!! discharge question

    ok so i have recently started having to wear panty liners due to too much discharge but i have noticed that occasionally it is really light brown in colour... its usually just clear but there is a few small very light brown spots on the panty liner too should i be worried???

    hmmm noni i dont know about that - mine has been clear the whole time... maybe Alan willbe able to give you some advice. You know me though, i would be asking the Dr or calling a midwife just to be safe, it saves the worrying...
    Hope you are feeling good aside from that.

    I'm sure i had this once or twice, my GP told me to call back if it got heavier, darker or redder but it just stopped so i didn't. BUT i'd recently been swabbed for infections and they knew i was clear of BV etc. so if you haven't you might want to see your doc just to make sure it's nothing.

    I know of a woman who has bright GREEN discharge when PG. Her first pregnancy she was going nuts back and forth to the docs for months while they tested for every thing they could think of. THe day after delivery it was gone and 2 years later it was that which let her know #2 was on the way... Our bodies do such weird things sometimes....

    Hi Nonie
    If it has only happened occasionally and it is very very light and you have no cramping I would say just mention it at your next visit.
    It sounds like it is a bit of old blood. Many things can cayse bleeding. Sex, pap smear, heavy exercise, lots of walking. (shopping)
