Vaginal DischargeA thin, milky, mild-smelling discharge is normal throughout pregnancy. The medical term for this is leukorrhea. It is very similar to the discharge that many women have prior to their menstrual periods. Since it increases until you reach full-term and may become rather heavy, some women are more comfortable wearing panty liners. Do not use tampons, which could introduce unwanted bacterium into the vagina.

Aside from being bad for your hygienic standards (and probably your partner's particularly during oral sex), this kind of discharge shouldn't be of any concern. Keep yourself clean, fresh, and dry as this will help you feel better about it.

Do not douche, as douching upsets the normal balance of microorganisms and the pH levels in the vagina which can lead to bacterial vaginosis (BV). BV is a serious vaginal infection. Douching can also lead to preterm birth. It could force air into the vagina, which can be dangerous during pregnancy.

If your vaginal discharge differs from leukorrhea, you should record it with your doctor. Be sure to note any strange odors, colors, thickness, heaviness, and any other concurrent symptoms you may be experiencing.

You also have a mucous plug. The mucous plug is the "cork" of mucus that seals the opening of the uterus and can become dislodged, though generally it dislodges near the end of the pregnancy up to two weeks before actual delivery. The mucous plug is a gelatinous chuck of mucus that is passed through the vagina. You will also want to inform your doctor if and when you have passed your mucous plug.

Generally, yes. I am on my third pregnancy, and was always told by my doctor that this was fine. However, if for some reason you belive this to be your "plug" then you should call your doctor. Better safe than sorry, I always say, so I would give him a call. I'm sure chances are, you're fine, especially if you're not bleeding, or cramping. Good luck! I have some too (ew isn't it yucky?) and I read online that it is normal, it is actually the formation of the plug that is causing this!

is it normal to have some discharge tissue during pregnancy

Some women have a harmless, physiologic (normal) discharge early in pregnancy. At the point when you'd expect to notice this, your pregnancy test would be positive.

This is very normal during pregnancy, and the discharge will increase as your pregnancy progresses.

no it is not an early sign of pregnancy

In most cases, depends on the color. You might have an infection or something though.

Discharge during pregnancy is normal! It is normal to have a havy flow of discharge. But, if the discharge has a green or yellow tint or a very foul smell, it could mean there is an infection and you should see your doctor about it.

Yes. It is normal to have white discharge during pregnancy. But there may be itching or foul smelling discharge and in that case you need to consult your gynaecologist.

Brown discharge can indicate pregnancy, but it can also mean that you have a water infection. See your Doctor.

User Avatar

that's normal honey. It's very common to have a brown discharge while pregnant, especially early pregnancy.

No, yellow and/or green discharge is never normal during pregnancy

User Avatar

If the discharge does not itch or smell it is probably completely normal and due to the increased blood supply to the area.

User Avatar

I've seen on several websites that white or milky looking discharge or watery to mildly thick discharge is normal in pregnancy and usually is in abundance.

Normal discharge increasing is completely normal, during pregnancy. Discharge with blood, bad odor or green, yellow discoloration needs to be brought to your doctors attention, as a possible sign of infection.

Bleeding during pregnancy is not "normal" but some light spotting is reported by about 50% of women in early pregnancy.

User Avatar

You have increased discharge and it's not unlike ovulation mucous, although that does vary

Yes, Brown discharge can occur in early pregnancy. It can either be from sexual intercourse or the baby implanting. If you have severe cramps and heavy bleeding, then you should definetly call you doctor. It also won't hurt if you mention the discharge to your doctor! : )

Yes this is normal. If the discharge becomes red - see your doctor.
