Brown discharge during pregnancy
Bearing a healthy baby is the dream of any future mother. Therefore, during an interesting situation, women monitor their health very carefully and carefully treat various changes in the body.
Some changes please them, for example, a rounded tummy, others cause anxiety.
It is to the latter and include brown discharge during pregnancy. And I must say that their appearance does not frighten the ladies for nothing! After all, the color of the exudate is due to the presence in the discharge of coagulated blood, which during pregnancy should not be.
However, this does not mean that the woman will not be able to bear the baby. The main thing is to know what you need to do when there are excretions.
Often, brown discharge in early pregnancy is associated with attachment to the uterine wall of the fetal egg. It should immediately be noted that it is not always accompanied by brown secretions. The color of the exudate can be different.
For example, pink discharge before the start of delay – this is also a sign of implantation of the fetal egg. And with excessively wounded endometrium, there may be discharge with blood.
This happens on the 6-12 day after conception. Discomfort such allocation does not cause. There is no pain, the exudate also has an unpleasant smell.
Yes, and the duration of excreta is insignificant – only a couple of hours, a maximum of 24 hours.
Also, brown discharge during pregnancy can occur due to a slight hormonal imbalance. Literally right after conception, the mother’s body begins to produce progesterone in more than usual quantities.
This hormone does not allow flaky endometrium, the update of which occurs during menstruation.
If progesterone is not enough, the inner membrane of the uterus nevertheless begins to exfoliate, but in small amounts, and as a result, there are secretions. Their color depends on the degree of detachment of the endometrium, but more often it does not prevent to endure a healthy crumb and give birth on time.
Occasionally, on the basis of the results of the tests, the doctor prescribes hormone replacement therapy.
In the second third of pregnancy, brown discharge is not as safe as in the early term. Most often they report a threat of premature birth.
In this situation, the discharge is accompanied by pulling or cramping pain in the lower back or lower abdomen. However, the pain syndrome does not always occur.
Therefore, it is better to be safe, and when brown precipitations appear during pregnancy, immediately inform them about the child’s gynecology.
