During pregnancy, each girl is attentive to all changes in the body. Incomprehensible situations cause a storm of emotions and experiences. An important issue is the appearance of spotting during pregnancy. What problems arise when they are detected, and what harm can they cause an unborn child? Let us consider in order what danger they carry, their causes and consequences.
Spotting, what is it?
During pregnancy, any discharge makes the expectant mother worry. It is necessary to know that not all of them are dangerous for the formation of the embryo. By species, they are different, but any of them cause concern.
Spotting at the beginning of pregnancy is characterized by small volumes of liquid emitted with blood from the genitals of the girl. If they are ordinary, then there is no smell and pronounced color. It can happen in any girl, and during pregnancy they do not disappear. Any changes in the state of discharge should be carefully monitored so as not to miss the bell on the presence of a health problem with the mother or child. It would be good to use daytime pads of snow-white color to make it easier to notice any changes.
If you experience heavy discharge with a large volume of blood, you should immediately go to the doctor for help.
Causes of discharge
Every eighth girl in the position is faced with such a disease. You must understand that the causes of lung secretions during pregnancy are different and do not always carry a danger. They can be caused by various reasons:
- Physiological. Appear due to hormonal surge in the body of a girl. This reason is completely natural. Excretions may also occur even before the determination of pregnancy, this happens due to an increase in the amount of progesterone in the body.
- Physical. They may be associated with the health of the mother or child. Very often spotting during pregnancy is accompanied by back pain and pulling pain in the lower abdomen.
The first trimester of pregnancy is considered to be the most risky, and it is during this period that it is recommended to scrupulously monitor your health. If you find any changes should consult with your doctor.
Normal discharge during pregnancy happens, and nowhere to get rid of them. The norm is considered a bright, unstained, unpainted secret. At the initial stages of pregnancy, progesterone is responsible for its formation. Thanks to him, the body begins to vigorously produce mucous secretions. Further, after the appearance of estrogen, the discharge becomes more abundant.
Consider which spotting during pregnancy are dangerous for the condition of the fetus and mother:
- Yellow. When such secretions appear, it is necessary to determine whether they have an odor and an uneven consistency? If these 2 factors are absent, then they can be safely attributed to normal secretions. If they are present, and there is itching and pain with each trip to the toilet, this indicates that an infection may have appeared in the urinary tract.
- White. If you have a discharge of milky hue, the consistency similar to the curd mass, this indicates the development of thrush. A lot of pregnant women have such whites. Due to the changes in the microflora of the vagina, the fungi that live there easily begin to multiply.
- Green. If this discharge is accompanied by a bad smell, sexually transmitted diseases are possible. If, before conception, there was an untreated disease in the body, then it would have to be eliminated during pregnancy. The presence of such spottings during pregnancy is dangerous because the pathology threatens the development of the embryo.
- Bloody This is the most dangerous type of discharge for a pregnant girl. Need to immediately go for help.
Spotting after conception
After intercourse, the girl cannot immediately know if fertilization has occurred. Life goes on as usual. But with successful conception, after 2-3 weeks of pregnancy, spotting may occur. This happens because of the increase in progesterone in the blood. They, as a rule, contain a small quantity of blood veins and do not differ in a bad smell. Their appearance does not entail danger for the expectant mother and fetus. On the contrary, the first signs of pregnancy smearing show before the delay.
There is a second type of discharge after conception. They are accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen, have an unpleasant odor and bloody hue. Such symptoms report misbehavior and the potential risk of miscarriage.
Early spotting: the dangers they carry
Many girls are faced with the problem of spotting during pregnancy in the early stages. In most cases, they are of natural origin, do not cause inconvenience and do not pose a threat to the development of the fetus.
But there are other situations in which the discharge talk about the presence of problems with pregnancy. It may be:
- Risk of miscarriage. At the initial gestational period, while the fetus is not fully matured, there is a high probability of miscarriage. This happens in most cases due to intense physical exertion. There are tears of the ovum, from which blood appears. Bleeding can be scarce or abundant. If you go to a doctor in time, spotting at the beginning of pregnancy may not harm the girl much. She is referred for treatment to the hospital, is undergoing a course of medical treatment and is prescribed complete rest. Basically, with a quick response, the pregnancy can be saved.
- Ectopic pregnancy. In this case, the preservation of the fetus is impossible, because the fertilized egg has not reached the required place. Attached on the way, in the mother's tubes or ovaries. In most cases, it turns out that the girl does not even suspect the presence of pregnancy, and during the appearance of smearing on the 6th week of pregnancy, she thinks that this is another period. It is the discharge at the 6th week that pathologists say in the development of pregnancy. If you do not respond in time to these signs, the fetus will develop in the wrong place, until it causes profuse bleeding. Such a situation may threaten the life of the mother.
- Fading pregnancy. In the early period there is a risk that the formation of the embryo will stop. There are many reasons for this, and it is impossible to say exactly why this is happening. With this diagnosis, the fetus is not possible to save. In this case, during pregnancy, bloody bleeding is accompanied by intense pain in the lower abdomen, a strong feeling of nausea, and a general malaise.
If there is a suspicion of missed abortion, you need to visit a doctor, an ultrasound examination room. After a precise definition of the diagnosis, an operation is performed to remove the fetus from the womb. It is recommended to respond immediately, when the first symptoms appear. If to tighten with a campaign to the doctor, complications, up to removal of female reproductive organs are possible.
The occurrence of smearing in the first trimester of pregnancy requires the supervision of a physician. Even in the event of minor signs, it is necessary to inform your doctor so that he can prescribe the necessary tests to find out the reasons.
Spotting on the third trimester
In the final trimester, spotting may also occur during pregnancy. In the early stages, they raise a lot of questions about the reason for their appearance, and in the third trimester, things are much simpler. The appearance of bloody brownish discharge indicates the beginning of cork waste. This happens before the baby is about to be born. Not every woman notices this moment, some secretions are not visible at all, while others may have clearly visible brown traces mixed with mucus.
When a spotting occurs, the main thing is to remember that regardless of the time limit (even if the spotting may appear at the 7th week of pregnancy or at the end of the term), it is important that they are free of unpleasant smell and without a lot of blood.
And in the third trimester there are complications, so you need to vigilantly monitor your condition until the birth. After all, you risk not only your health, but also the health of the baby. If spotting occurs during pregnancy, the danger they carry is associated with the appearance of red blood. This may indicate a number of troubles:
- placental abruption,
- prolapse of the placenta in the cervix.
Why smears brown during pregnancy?
In the early stages of discharge, a pregnant woman can be of a different color and shade.
Even brown secretions have different variations: light brown are the result of bacterial vaginosis, infections, dark brown indicate the presence of clotted blood, having a vaginal, cervical or uterine origin.
Brown discharge in early pregnancy makes the expectant mothers nervous, and this has its own reasons.
The appearance of such symptoms may indicate various abnormalities and pathologies, but at the same time, their appearance is not always an alarming symptom, in some cases they will be safe.
The question of their origin, pathological or physiological, will have to be resolved only by a doctor who will take into account some indicators — gestational age, pain, etc. Therefore, the answer to the question “in early pregnancy can smear?” Will be different, but it is necessary to consult with a leading obstetrician-gynecologist.
Why in the early stages of pregnancy smears?
All causes are directly related to the duration of pregnancy. There are especially many reasons for the first 12 weeks of gestation. But, as a rule, in 80% of cases, they are a variant of the norm and a consequence of the hormonal adjustment of the body.
A couple of weeks after the fertilization of the egg, it is implanted in the uterine lining, which can be accompanied by damage to the blood vessels, and the released blood is mixed with vaginal discharge. As a result, light brown spots of various consistencies appear on the woman’s underwear. The main thing - they do not cause any discomfort, have a neutral smell.
During the entire first trimester, the problem may occur due to hormonal disruption and at a time when, theoretically, there must be menstruation. But consultation of the gynecologist is not excluded, because there may be other, pathological, reasons.
Sputtering during pregnancy: pathological causes
Later, the emergence of such problems will be associated with dangerous conditions that threaten pregnancy, and sometimes the life of the mother and child. Such states include the threat of miscarriage, in which the discharge is bloody in nature.
The emergence of the threat of miscarriage is formed due to the detachment of the ovum, and damaged blood vessels and will give specific symptoms. In addition to the discharge, scanty or abundant, a pulling pain in the lower abdomen, nausea, up to and including vomiting.
Therefore, if blood smears during pregnancy - you must immediately call an ambulance, and before her arrival to take a horizontal position and try to calm down.
Any physical activity, and even more excitement can only aggravate the situation. In 80% of cases, in the early period and with the provision of skilled care, pregnancy can be maintained.
Why smears on early terms?
This can be an alarming symptom and indicate an ectopic pregnancy - the fertilized egg takes root in one of the fallopian tubes, not in the uterus, and continues to develop. This condition is dangerous in the first place rupture of the fallopian tube, followed by heavy bleeding.
Ectopic pregnancy is almost always accompanied by complications: bleeding threatens the life of a woman, and rupture of the tube and its subsequent removal will significantly affect reproductive function. In addition to blood, there is a pain of a pulling nature, more often in the area where the fertilized egg has fixed.
A threatening condition for the life of the mother and the fetus is placental abruption. Due to partial detachment, the placenta loses the ability to fully fulfill its purpose - to transport oxygen and nutrients from the mother, this process can result in heavy bleeding. Most often, this pathology occurs in women with high blood pressure, scars on the uterus, after abortion or cesarean section, etc.
The detachment can manifest itself in different ways: from stains on linen to heavy bleeding, which is accompanied by pain of a pulling character, tension in the lower abdomen.
In some cases, an obstetrician-gynecologist is diagnosed with placenta previa. In this case, the placenta partially or completely blocks the lumen of the uterus, and there is no question of natural childbirth - only cesarean section, and with an increase in blood pressure, placental abruption can occur.
The appearance of smearing brown discharge during pregnancy in the third trimester
In addition to the above reasons, at the final stage of carrying a baby, it may smear for special reasons, but most likely there is nothing to fear, especially if they have impurities of mucus. Thus, the mucous protective plug that covers the cervix and, accordingly, protects the fetus from infection and other aggressive environmental factors, will depart.
Other, not dependent on the duration of pregnancy, causes
There are a number of reasons that provoke similar symptoms regardless of the period.
Among them are:
- Cervical erosion. Not a rare problem that occurs in both giving birth and women who have not given birth. During the entire period of pregnancy, the uterine epithelium can be especially easily damaged, which explains the widespread erosion during this period. As a rule, the process has an asymptomatic course, but after sex, or an examination on a gynecological chair, a woman notices a scanty, bloody, bloody discharge,
- Infections and inflammatory diseases. Most of the pathological processes of the female reproductive system cause vaginal bleeding, which are accompanied by various symptoms - an unpleasant smell, pain or discomfort. Due to a decrease in local and general immunity, most pathologies manifest themselves in the period of gestation.
The appearance of the problem indicates a variety of pathologies and abnormalities, although the physiological variant is not excluded. Trying to figure out what is happening on its own is highly undesirable. It is best to ask for help from a leading specialist, and establish the exact cause, using the entire list of necessary equipment.
Even if this is a variant of the norm, and nothing terrible has happened, it is best to know for sure, and to be safe, than to mourn a rash act.
Spotting during pregnancy - what are they?
The word "daub", frightening pregnant, domestic. So called scanty discharge, appearing in the early stages of pregnancy or during the future waiting of the child. This is not necessarily a sign of pathology, some of these phenomena are explained by the processes occurring in the female body in order to adapt it to the bearing of the fetus. Produces mucus cervix to maintain moisture in the cavity of the reproductive system. With the appearance in the uterus of the fetus there is a need to protect it and the amount of mucus increases. It is these discharges that are visible on the linen in the norm.
Spotting on early pregnancy occurs at the moment when the ovum is implanted in the wall of the uterus. Within a few days of the first trimester, a white or beige-colored secret appears, pink daub. At the moment when the future embryo attaches, micro-ruptures of blood vessels occur in this place on the inner wall of the uterus. This is a normal phenomenon and soon it goes away by itself. Keep a watchful spotting, secret with an unpleasant smell.
In the days of the alleged menstruation, women sometimes have scanty spotting discharge of a light shade, which have no odor and are not accompanied by pain or itching in the area of the external genital organs. In this case, doctors consider this a variant of the norm and explain the hormonal changes in the body that are occurring. However, a woman needs to take care of her health and follow simple rules:
- avoid excessive physical exertion
- do not lift or carry weight
- do not make sudden movements
- Do not visit the bath or sauna,
- to observe rest and limit intimate activity on the eve of the supposed monthly periods.
Why does an early posture highlight appear?
A slight daub in pregnant women in the early stages may appear for physiological reasons or because of developing infectious diseases and pathologies.Early detection eliminates many problems and saves pregnancy. There should be concern about the marks on the laundry with a change in smell and color, accompanied by cutting pains and other manifestations of the disease.
It is extremely important at the beginning of the formation of the fetus to exclude the likelihood of ectopic pregnancy, the onset of placental abruption, a developing pathology of the fetus, or a beginning miscarriage. The explanation of why the discharge has appeared will help the pregnant woman to calm down, and mental balance is one of the keys to a successful pregnancy.
Threat of interruption
Sometimes daub in early pregnancy is a sign of serious violations. They lead to premature termination of pregnancy. According to statistics, every fifth woman faces such a problem. Often this leads to a hormonal imbalance in the body, in particular, a lack of progesterone. This condition can be corrected by taking hormones, while bed rest can be shown.
With the right therapy, during the 2 and 3 trimesters, everything goes well and in most cases it is possible to keep a healthy child. However, the selection of brown, cream or with traces of blood - a very disturbing sign. It is important to start the correction in time and undergo treatment. Photos of exposures suggesting a health hazard often help women self-diagnose a problem.
Pathological ectopic pregnancy is very dangerous, so it is important to quickly recognize it. In the early stages there is a chance to keep the reproductive organs of the woman intact. It is impossible to save a child with such a pathology, since the fetus cannot develop outside the uterus. The most important symptom of pathological pregnancy is the spotting of brown color and pain that is constantly increasing.
When should I go to the doctor for an ectopic pregnancy? Immediately, as soon as there was a suspicion of pathology. Such conditions can be fatal. Fetal egg can attach to the fallopian tube, cervix, ovary, and even in the abdominal cavity, and later in the process of growth to break the organ. The onset of bleeding in a woman is life threatening.
Pregnancy pregnancy also manifests itself as a brown smelling discharge that is accompanied by an unpleasant odor. It manifests itself not only daubs, but also the cessation of all manifestations that accompany the expectation of a child. Toxicosis passes, breast sensitivity is lost, and breast swelling disappears. The doctor can make a diagnosis of blood tests and ultrasound. In this condition, the embryo in the uterus first stops developing and then dies. Save the stalled pregnancy is impossible.
In this state, the uterus is reduced, the woman has pain and pain in the lower abdomen, the body seeks to get rid of the fetus. Timely surgery and removal of the embryo together with the membranes allows you to maintain the health of the woman and her ability to become pregnant in the future. If this condition is not treated, sepsis begins, a woman can not only lose the opportunity to give birth, but also die from inflammation of the internal organs.
Pregnancy manifests many chronic and sluggish diseases, because at this time the woman’s immunity is lowered and the body’s resistance falls. At an early stage, women may expect scanty brown discharge, due to cervical erosion, in anticipation of an infant. Traditional therapy can often be postponed until the moment of childbirth, especially since concomitant treatment sometimes leads to the fact that erosion takes place without additional effort.
Manifestation of thrush
In the early stages of pregnancy, in the first trimester, thrush can develop due to hormonal changes in the body and other causes. A scanty white cheesy discharge is a sign of disturbed microflora. The increase in the number of lactobacilli is not dangerous, at a certain stage, increased acidity in the vagina is even useful, as it prevents the reproduction of pathogenic organisms.
Lactobacilli produce lactic acid, and the fungus of the genus candida (the cause of thrush) destroys the epithelium, which causes itching and burning. In the process of childbirth, the mucous membrane affected by thrush is more prone to injury, and infection can harm the baby. Doctors recommend treating thrush immediately after detection.
Diseases of the sexual sphere
Sometimes at the beginning of pregnancy can smear quite abundantly, which indicates the presence of sexually transmitted diseases. If the discharge is yellow, greenish or gray and has an unpleasant odor, the woman may feel itching, there is a burning sensation during urination, there may be discomfort in the lower abdomen, sometimes the temperature rises. It is necessary to sign up for an examination as soon as possible and pass urine, blood, smear tests to detect infection and proper prescription of drugs.
When genital diseases remain untreated, the infection affects many systems of the body and a baby can become infected. An infected fetus develops with impairments, possibly a premature termination of pregnancy and the death of a child in the womb. Under such circumstances, the danger to the mother and the child far exceeds the potential harm from the use of tablets.
The appearance of daub should alert the pregnant woman and the first thing to do is to visit a gynecological consultation. In order to make a diagnosis, in addition to the examination and collection of anamnesis (a conversation with a doctor about the course of pregnancy and the manifestations of the disease, as well as data from a medical card), it is necessary to pass tests. In addition, you may need:
- endometrial diagnostic curettage,
Some states are observed in dynamics. To do this, you will need to come to the inspection several times, check how much discharge will be in 5 - 10 days. Sometimes it’s safer to stay in hospital for a while, as one of the frequent appointments to save a pregnancy is bed rest and rest. Women, especially those who have children, it is difficult to provide the necessary environment at home. In addition, the effect of drugs administered intravenously is stronger and has fewer contraindications than tablets.
What to do?
Do not use hygienic panty liners with aromas, as this may also disrupt the clinical picture. After receiving the results of the examination, it is better to start treatment without delay. Some infections cause the development of cancer.
In certain situations, such as erosion of the cervix, the doctor will immediately prescribe a treatment time or postpone the intervention until a later date. To eliminate erosion, the electrocoagulation procedure is used. Sometimes after childbirth, this problem is resolved on its own, but erosion is dangerous in that it increases the risk of injury to the cervix when the baby’s head passes through it.
With the threat of miscarriage, when there is bleeding, prescribe a course of hormones, and missed or ectopic pregnancy is interrupted. If the term is still small, doctors try to use medical, rather than surgical methods. If the survey did not reveal infection or serious violations, daub while pregnancy lasts, you can not be treated.
When do I need to see a doctor urgently?
In early pregnancy, smears are quite often in perfectly healthy women, and if the discharge does not change color, smell and is not accompanied by pain and itching, you need not worry - this is the norm. In other cases, even scanty bleeding suggests a condition that may threaten pregnancy. The doctor, in whom the woman is observed, will identify the cause of the smear and relieve from doubt.
Urgent consultation is required if there is a discharge of dark color, brown or brown with traces of blood. Immediate treatment will be required if the daub has a color from yellow-green to gray, it smells sharply and increases in quantity. Daubs, accompanied by pains of a pulling or cutting nature, aggravated seizures - a reason to visit a doctor as soon as possible. The degree of danger and the course of pregnancy will be assessed by a doctor.
Causes of spotting, not depending on the duration of pregnancy
Not all spotting during pregnancy can be attributed and compared with a specific period. They can be caused by reasons not related to the development of the fetus, and in most cases are related to the health of the mother. It may be:
- Erosion. Many young ladies faced such a problem. Regardless of whether you are pregnant or not, there is a risk of cervical erosion. Usually the treatment consists of cauterization, but this is not recommended during pregnancy. So how can complicate natural childbirth. Spotting occurs after irritation of the cervix with a foreign object, it can happen after intercourse or after examination by a doctor.
- Infectious disease and inflammation. Splendid secretions during pregnancy are dangerous for mother and unborn child with the possibility of developing sexually transmitted infections. It is not always the case that the girl became infected after pregnancy. In most cases, microorganisms living in her genitals could not cause problems while there was a strong immunity. When the girl became pregnant, the protection begins to gradually lose its resistance, which leads to the unhindered development of the disease. Spotting in this case is accompanied by an unpleasant smell and pulling pain in the lower abdomen.
The main thing to remember is that during pregnancy, brown discharge with changes in structure and odor entails a number of problems that can harm the condition of the fetus. Do not forget to be observed at the attending physician and to tell about all changes concerning you.
Why smears chestnut during pregnancy?
In the early stages of discharge, a pregnant woman may have a different color and shade.
Even chestnut secretions have different variations: clear chestnut are the result of bacterial vaginosis, at once, dark chestnuts indicate the presence of coagulated blood having a vaginal, cervical or uterine origin.
Brown discharge in the early stages of pregnancy makes future moms freaked out, and this has its reasons.
The appearance of such signs may indicate different abnormalities and pathologies, but at the same time, their occurrence is not always worrying symptom, in some cases they will be harmless.
Only a doctor will have to decide on their origin - pathological or physiological - one that will consider some indicators - the duration of pregnancy, pain, etc. Consequently, the result to the question "in early pregnancy can smear?" Will be different, but in an indispensable manner need to consult with a leading obstetrician-gynecologist.
The appearance of smearing chestnut discharge during pregnancy in the third trimester
In addition to the aforementioned reasons, at the final stage of carrying a baby, it may smear for special reasons, but rather everyone has nothing to fear, only if they have impurities of mucus. Just in this way, the mucous protective plug that covers the cervix and, accordingly, protecting the fetus, from contagion and other hostile environmental factors will depart.
Dirty in pregnant women - what is it
The term "daub" - household and implies the appearance of spotting. The main characteristic of this phenomenon is scarcity, that is, a small amount. The appearance of such a secret in the early stages is due to different reasons. Not all of them relate to pathologies.
Normally, at the beginning of gestation, a woman is disturbed by whitish, beige or light brown outflows. Their occurrence is due to changes that are associated with the development of the fetus. The appearance of traces of red blood or purulent secretions requires a mandatory visit to the doctor. This is especially important if other symptoms of a developing disease or disorder are present.
Experts consider it normal for daubs to appear during gestation on days before menstruation. This is due to hormonal changes in the body. Allocation should be scanty, barely noticeable.
In the days of the alleged menstrual bleeding, the expectant mother needs to remember the rules of behavior, which include the following points:
- no sudden movements,
- exclusion of physical activity
- providing emotional peace,
- exception of visiting baths, saunas,
- exclusion of intimate relationships.
Calculate dangerous days of pregnancy will help keeping the calendar of the menstrual cycle.
What can smear early on
The appearance of a thinning of mucus in a woman in the first week is considered the norm. This is due to the restructuring of the entire body in connection with the bearing of the fetus. Implantation of the embryo enhances the work of the mucous membranes of internal organs to maintain the optimum level of humidity. The secret in the form of mucus constantly produces the cervix.
In some cases, the woman is concerned about brown discharge. They are associated with the fixation of the ovum in the uterus. During implantation, which lasts about 40 hours, there is damage to the mucous tissue and blood vessels. As a result, a woman can detect the presence of smears on her underwear.
Not always the appearance of daub - the result of natural processes occurring during gestation. There are several pathologies that require a mandatory visit to the doctor.
Risk of miscarriage
The causes of the threat of miscarriage are many - for example, genetic defects of the embryo incompatible with life, or progesterone deficiency (necessary for the full development of the fetus).
The hormone ensures the readiness of the inner layer of the uterus to the attachment of the ovum. With a low level of progesterone in the first trimester (13 weeks each), the female organ rejects the fertilized egg. The result is a smearing secret pink. Detection of such a daub requires urgent medical attention.
Women are prescribed hormonal drugs and strict bed rest. Monitoring and monitoring in the hospital allows you to save pregnancy.
Excessive activity of the future mother can provoke the expiration. Therefore, it is so important in the early period (especially at 6, 7, 8, 9 weeks) to properly distribute physical activity, to devote enough time for rest and good sleep.
Ectopic pregnancy is a condition in which a fertilized egg is implanted outside the uterus. First, an abnormal pregnancy develops as normal. As the embryo grows, it lacks the necessary space. Most often, the fixation of the ovum occurs in the fallopian tube. An increase in the size of the embryo leads to stretching of the walls of the oviduct, and then their rupture.
Initially, a woman notices smearing traces, painful sensations appear. If the integrity of the pipe is broken, they become more abundant and the pain is more intense. The state of dangerously large blood loss. The same phenomena are observed with the localization of the embryo in the ovary, uterine cervix or abdominal cavity.
When to visit a doctor
Throughout the pregnancy, the girls are observed at the gynecologist. If you have any worries and experiences, it is worth discussing with your doctor. He will explain in detail what is connected with the processes occurring in your body. With normal discharge, do not panic too much. Explanation is always there.
But with the appearance of discharge with obvious abnormalities, it is necessary to immediately call an ambulance, without waiting for the next appointment with the local gynecologist. With the advent of discharge, concomitant processes in the body arise:
- aching back pain
- pulls the lower abdomen,
- the temperature rises
- itch may occur.
An ambulance will take you to the hospital, to the gynecological department. It will be mandatory inspection of the doctor on duty. He will prescribe the necessary treatment, depending on the position in which you are located. In the morning, the necessary tests will be assigned to further determine the cause of bleeding.
Mandatory for incoming pregnant girls in the department with bleeding is the passage of ultrasound. Thanks to the study, the doctor will be able to more accurately determine the causes of hospitalization and prescribe the correct treatment.
The most dangerous time of appearance of discharge is early gestational age. Mostly spotting on the 5th week of pregnancy and further entail serious consequences. Therefore, in the early stages, it is desirable for girls to be alert to their health and all changes. The sooner you seek help, the more likely it is to save a pregnancy.
What treatment is prescribed?
When discharge occurs, regardless of the period of pregnancy, the doctor prescribes tests to determine the cause of their occurrence. An examination is performed on a gynecological chair, and, if necessary, an ultrasound examination is scheduled.
When the nature of the discharge becomes clear to the doctor, he prescribes treatment depending on the situation:
- Эрозия лечится после родов, при условии, что это требуется. In many cases, after pregnancy, the pathology passes naturally. However, if treatment is required, it should be carried out after childbirth, so that after cauterization, it does not impede the process of natural childbirth. There are cases when it is necessary to treat erosion after the onset of pregnancy, in this case using electrocoagulation.
- If an infection is detected, the doctor prescribes medication during pregnancy. Preparations are used only those that do not harm the development of the child. After identifying chlamydia or thrush, antiviral and antifungal agents are prescribed. Such treatment can be carried out at home, it is necessary to follow all appointments of the attending physician. In gonorrhea, the treatment takes place under the supervision of doctors. If you do not seek help in time, bad consequences may be difficult to cure. These include damage to the heart, nervous system. Not only pills are prescribed for treatment, but intramuscular daily injections are also used. At the discretion of the physician, physiotherapy may be prescribed.
- If a threatened miscarriage of a future mother is detected, she is immediately hospitalized and prescribed a course of hormonal medications. This will help prevent the threat of abortion. Girls are also assigned constant bed rest, the rejection of physical exertion and compliance with the diet prescribed by the attending physician.
- If, after testing, it became clear that a missed pregnancy had occurred, then no treatment is prescribed. Further development of the fetus is no longer possible. The girl is sent for surgical cure.
Doctors are trying to save the last pregnancy, if there is a threat. Nowadays, much more positive outcomes are recorded. Thanks to innovations, the latest equipment and the zeal of doctors it is possible to preserve pregnancy.
The main recommendation of the doctors - planning pregnancy in advance, you need to be checked for the presence of genital diseases and infections. To pass the tests will have both girls and men. If you cure only one partner, another can transmit the disease again. This will help protect you from unnecessary medication when you become pregnant.
In order for the pregnancy to proceed without the appearance of a variety of spotting, doctors recommend following simple rules:
- Limit heavy exercise. This does not mean that you need to completely abandon sports, you just need to go to a lightweight program allowed for pregnant women.
- Proper nutrition should accompany you throughout pregnancy.
- Avoid unnecessary stressful situations and upcoming scandals. Your condition affects the development and formation of the fetus. If disruptions occur in development, a deplorable outcome is possible.
- Regularly appear at weekly appointments with a gynecologist. Perform prescribed treatment and pass all recommended tests.
Pregnancy is a very crucial period in the life of every girl, throughout all time it is necessary to carefully monitor all changes. In case of discharge, unpleasant smell, pain in the abdomen and back, immediately consult a doctor. After all, the faster you respond, the more time the doctor will help you. Be healthy!
What causes daubs in early pregnancy immediately after conception?
Smearing pink discharge at the beginning of pregnancy is most often the norm. But sometimes daub can indicate a variety of pathological processes in the body. Therefore, a woman should have certain knowledge that will help her to distinguish normal vaginal secretion from dangerous secretions.
Smearing spotting during pregnancy are not uncommon, they can appear immediately at 1 week of conception or a little later. They arise as a result of the implantation of the ovum in the uterus. But this secretion is more like ordinary mucus with a few patches of blood. In this case, women often in the forums on the Internet ask such questions:
“Single brown discharges appeared at the 3rd week of pregnancy, they are not abundant, but it is still scary. Is it normal or is the fetus under threat? ”
This week is decided the further fate of pregnancy. In other words, can the embryo successfully consolidate in the uterus? In the case described, the implantation of the ovum occurred. Safe implant bleeding can be single or episodic. These are peculiar spotting before menstruation, which would have gone if the embryo had not been fixed. They may not be saturated brown or with just a few drops of blood.
Fears cause abundant smearing brown discharge of prolonged nature. In this case, do not hesitate, but it is better to immediately go to the hospital.
Ointment due to hormonal failure
As already mentioned, brown discharge in early pregnancy occurs approximately in the period of intended menstruation. The fact is that the female body retains information about the cycle and does not have time to fully restructure itself for the new state.
In the midst of hormonal adjustment you need to be extremely careful, because this is the most dangerous time for the fetus. Even if there are no brown discharge during pregnancy at any time, the following rules should be observed:
- physical exercise and weight lifting are prohibited,
- Peace and creation of emotional comfort is shown,
- it is totally unacceptable to take a bath in water exceeding the temperature of 37,
- It is recommended to refrain from intimacy.
Neglect of these rules can cause heavy bleeding in the early stages of pregnancy, which can quickly develop into bleeding. And it already threatens the life of the child and mother.
The secretion of a smearing character after a medical examination or sexual intimacy
Often, the selection in the first trimester appear due to damage to the mucous membrane of the reproductive system. The reasons for this may be very different:
- gynecological examination,
- careless introduction of candles,
- unsuccessful douching.
In the first trimester of pregnancy, discharge after intercourse may have small drops of blood or be brown, but not in large quantities.
In addition, the causes of this phenomenon can be caused by the presence of cervical erosion. This pathology causes insignificant discharge during pregnancy, which, as a rule, pose no danger. But the treatment of the disease is already carried out after the birth of the child.
When spotting is a reason to visit a gynecologist?
It is worth noting that spotting on early pregnancy may be the norm, but with the same probability of being pathological. This is the whole complexity of this situation. But you do not need to worry once again, but rather listen to your feelings to analyze your condition. The information below will help to understand when there is no cause for concern, and when you really cannot do without medical assistance.
Every woman should remember that in time to diagnose the discharge during pregnancy in the early stages, the doctor will be able to help save the fetus. A gynecologist must be visited quickly if even a slight smear appears with the following characteristic symptoms:
- brownish discharge with blood and pus
- blood clots appear for a long time,
- dark vaginal secretion
- characteristic shade (yellow, green, pink),
- there is an unpleasant smell
- there is itching and burning,
- pain in the lower abdomen (may be supplemented by pain in the lower back).
Self-treatment in such situations is not only useless, but also dangerous. The only thing a woman can do is quickly go to the hospital, keeping calm. The doctor will conduct an examination, prescribe the necessary tests and examinations to identify the cause, which caused such a discharge during pregnancy in the early stages.
Discharges from placental or fetal egg detachment
Smearing bloody secretion is not always, but may indicate a detachment of the placenta or the ovum. The reason for this are often the strongest physical exertion that causes tears, and already their consequences are blood loss.
First, in the secretion appear small bloody clots, the number of which may increase. Here it is necessary as soon as possible to consult a doctor and undergo an ultrasound. If the diagnosis is confirmed, then the patient is urgently hospitalized, appropriate medications are prescribed and full rest. With the timely detection of the problem and the appointment of treatment, the symptoms cease, and the pregnancy remains.
Ointment as a sign of intrauterine fetal death
Freezing pregnancy does not give a chance to save the fetus. It is not known for what reasons, but the development of the fetus stops completely, after which it stops.
It marks the termination of all symptoms of pregnancy:
- general malaise,
- breast pouring
- appropriate level of hCG in the blood.
But you need to understand that not all women feel similar signs during the development of the fetus. There is a characteristic symptom for this condition - viscous bloody secretion on the background of severe pain in the lower abdomen and lower back, which have a long period of exacerbation.
An exact diagnosis can only be made by a doctor after an ultrasound scan, and the problem itself can only be solved surgically. If the fetus is removed in time with the shell, then the patient’s full health and reproductive function are preserved. Unfortunately, women sometimes do not pay attention to the symptoms, so they get to the hospital too late. This pathology can lead to the removal of the uterus, the occurrence of sepsis, and in the most advanced cases, the death of a woman is not excluded.
Brown discharge - a threat of miscarriage?
It is a sudden termination of pregnancy that causes the most concern in women. Every day on the Internet there are more and more questions related to the symptoms of this process:
"I do not know what to do. We finally managed to conceive a child, so I worry about any occasion. She was not used to bloody discharge at the 5th week of pregnancy, and today there are a lot more of them. Another pain in the stomach and back. "
We are glad to inform you that this woman managed to keep the pregnancy, because all participants of the conversation unanimously advised to go to the hospital immediately. Just at the reception opened the bleeding, but timely medical care corrected the situation.
It is worth noting that during this period, the chance to preserve the fetus is 50 to 50, and 2 women out of 10 face this problem. At first, there is a slight bloody secretion, which increases in volume and darkens over time, but treatment can help if you turn in time.
Pathological secretion in ectopic pregnancy
Although menstruation with ectopic pregnancy does not go, there are cases of bleeding similar to menstruation, indicating a pathology. In the case of ectopic pregnancy, it is impossible not only the preservation, but also the development of the embryo. Fetal egg fastened in the wrong place.
A comment from one of our subscribers: “Three years ago there was an ectopic pregnancy with anchoring the embryo in the ovary. And then again there were brown vaginal discharge at 6 weeks gestation. Immediately went to the hospital, the same diagnosis, only in the tube. Girls, be very careful, take care of your health! "
Worst of all, in a situation like this, a woman may not even know that she is pregnant, so a heavy discharge at the 6th week of pregnancy can be mistaken for another menstruation. It is worth remembering that the sixth week is very important for this diagnosis, because the brown discharge at the 6th week of pregnancy signals about pathology in time, forcing the woman to visit the gynecologist.
But if you do not pay attention to such signs, the fruit will continue to develop in the wrong place. As a result, bleeding opens, which not only can deprive a woman of the opportunity to have a child again, but also threaten her life.
Genital infections and candidiasis
One can not say that the safety and security of the embryo depends on the health of the woman. Indeed, many infections and bacteria can both harm the safe bearing of the child and be transmitted to the fetus.
“The discharge at the 9th week of pregnancy turned dark and yellow, and there were unpleasant feelings in that very spot. What to do? Is there anything wrong with the fruit, because until the ninth week everything was fine ... "
If you have noted a similar secretion, and it may still be greenish, then most likely there are genital infections. Yellow color indicates the presence of an inflammatory process that does not bring anything good. In this case, there is a certain pain, and the secretion contains pieces of pus.
A woman needs to remember that any infection negatively affects her hormonal background. In addition, as mentioned above, there is a chance of infection of the fetus, which disrupts its development, and in some situations, infection is the cause of miscarriage. And it’s not for nothing that doctors, even the final stage of pregnancy, when a woman is almost ready for childbirth (week 38 and later), are worried about infections. Especially dangerous is the case of premature rupture of the amniotic fluid, which opens direct access to dangerous bacteria.
Thrush, though not considered a very dangerous disease, can also harm the baby. Often women mark white curd discharge at 40 weeks gestation or earlier. Pregnant women should not treat candidiasis on their own, because not all drugs are safe for the fetus.
In the presence of this infection in the parturient woman, there is a chance that the baby will become infected with thrush during labor. Therefore, this disease should be treated on time with the first symptoms. The causes of this disease are very different, but in pregnant women the pathology is most often associated with a decrease in immunity.
How is the pathology of secretions diagnosed?
Immediately, we note that pathological discharge occurs not only in the first trimester. A woman can mark the pathological secretion and in the middle of pregnancy, and on the thirty-eighth week.
As for the diagnosis, in addition to the gynecological examination, ultrasound, it will be necessary to pass a smear.
In case of a disease, a smear may contain:
- high white blood cell count
- increased mucus volume
- abnormal cells
- infections and microbes.
What drugs are prescribed for low vaginal secretion?
If the daub is associated with the threat of miscarriage or other problems with pregnancy, then conservative treatment with progesterone products is possible. Duphaston and Utrogestan are prescribed to patients who have progesterone deficiency. This hormone is responsible for the normal gestation of the fetus, and also prevents miscarriage. Therefore, taking the drug under the supervision of a physician woman with the threat of spontaneous abortion can save the fetus and make it before the prescribed time. Be sure to read about the nature of possible discharge after Utrozhestan during pregnancy before using the drug.
Stimulating secretion in the first trimester may be a physiological norm or pathology. But in any case, do not need to delay, but it is better to immediately contact the doctor to eliminate possible complications.
Brown vaginal discharge in pregnant
The gestation period is a time that requires particularly careful attention to the signals that the body sends, one of these signals will be a change in the color and consistency of mucus from the vagina.
This is a physiological phenomenon, but only if they are transparent, not having a strong unpleasant smell.
Daub in the early stages - learn to distinguish the innocent from the dangerous
Pregnancy does not always proceed smoothly. Quite often violations in the process and disruptions in the body of a woman. However, it is not always a cause for concern. Forewarned is forearmed. We offer to arm yourself with knowledge and find out what daub during pregnancy and with what it is connected. Under this concept means a small discharge from the vagina, which can be both colorless and brown, greenish, cream, but often brown. There are a number of reasons why there are spotting during pregnancy.
Causes and effects of daubs in early pregnancy
Discharge - an everyday occurrence for women at any age, because the vagina has a mucous membrane. Sometimes they simply mean that the pregnancy has not come, although the gynecologist has put you on record. This is rare, but not always the absence of menstruation, an increase in the uterus and the bend of the cervix means conception. So spotting may be normal menstruation.
But brown daub in early pregnancy may have a different, more negative character.
The first cause of daub is considered hormonal changes . characterized by leukemia mixed with blood. Such discharge may occur once a month at periodic intervals of the menstrual cycle, and do not carry any threat. The so-called monthly in pregnant women. In this case, it is worthwhile simply to reduce physical activity for a given period, indulge in positive emotions and eat right.
Ещё одним фактором, вызывающим мазню в начале беременности, может стать placental abruption . Этот симптом уже стал обыденностью. Отслоение хориона уже не пугает женщин.Of course, if passes to an insignificant degree. The blood that accumulates under the detachment, stands out from the vagina and can be seen on the panties. Small areas of detachment are not dangerous and usually disappear after short-term treatment. But a significant detachment of the placenta can lead to hypoxia and killing of the fetus. You can recognize it by intense full bleeding. In any case, when detecting blood discharge, it is worth going to the doctor, as well as to refuse intimate intimacy. More about placental abruption →
ABOUT missed abortion may signal daub in 5 weeks of pregnancy, when the probability of miscarriage is particularly high. To avoid fetal fading, it is necessary to regularly visit a doctor, then at the first threat, he will be able to prescribe treatment and save the life of the child. If the fetus is still stopped, the only way out is cleaning. However, the deceased fertilized egg can come out on its own, and a pregnant woman will not even notice. But it is better not to bring to this. So if you have a suspicious discharge, go to the doctor.
Also daub may be evidence ectopic pregnancy . which is a serious threat to the life of a woman. Therefore, with a thinning discharge, it is important to make an ultrasound scan as soon as possible, which during a normal pregnancy will show the ovum. And with ectopic, when the embryo is located either in the ovary, or in the fallopian tube, or in the abdominal cavity, ultrasound of pregnancy will not be detected. Therefore, if you have a daub in 5 weeks, combined with pain in the lower abdomen, rather consult a gynecologist. Otherwise, the moment of elimination of ectopic pregnancy can be missed, which often leads to rupture of the organ. Read more about ectopic pregnancy →
Suddenly started brown daub in the 7th week of pregnancy, most likely, signals the beginning of the rejection of the fetus. That is, simply put, about miscarriage . It should be noted that the threat of a pregnancy failure is especially relevant at this time.
The preceding symptoms may be watery discharge, as well as nagging pain in the abdomen and lower back. If you do not consult a doctor in time, severe bleeding may develop and the fetus will die. It is also worth guarding when greenish, yellow, cheesy and any other suspicious secretions appear. Especially if their companions are an unpleasant smell, sensations of itching and burning. But the usual whiter, which in this period may increase, should not be afraid - at week 7 it is a common phenomenon.
No less dangerous is bloody daub in the 8th week of pregnancy, which also indicates approaching miscarriage . With intensive bleeding, as a rule, it is no longer possible to preserve the fetus. But with brown spotting, such a probability is still there. Therefore, it is important to consult a doctor as soon as possible when a similar symptom is detected. After all, brown daub, most likely, means the beginning of the detachment of the ovum.
But the light or whitish discharge with a sour odor is not a pathology. On the contrary, at the 8th week of pregnancy, they are in the order of things. However, sudden changes in the color and intensity of the daub, the presence of purulent mucus, can be a signal exacerbations of genital infections . The diagnosis is “facilitated” by the presence of itching, burning and pain in the groin area. Therefore, the campaign to the doctor postpone still not worth it.
Availability erosion on the cervix also contributes to the appearance of daubs during pregnancy. Usually, when such a diagnosis is made after a woman is examined by a gynecologist, as well as during sexual intercourse, spotting may appear. Often, they pose no threat. Moreover, the "non-involvement" of cervical erosion to genital cancer has already been proven. So, if there is no urgent need, treatment may be delayed until delivery.
To provoke a daub in early pregnancy can low placentation or the complete presentation of the chorion. This symptom is observed in a quarter of future mummies, however, in 90% of them, the placenta migrates safely and at the time of birth the condition normalizes. If the spotting is due to this, there is no particular cause for concern. It is only necessary to observe peace, not to be nervous, not to lift heavy and to be constantly observed by a doctor. In addition, it is necessary to completely eliminate sex and jumping. You also need to be prepared for what is most likely to have a cesarean section.
And yet, most often the pregnancy ends safely, because a lot depends on the expectant mother, her attitude and faith in her own strength. It is only necessary to listen to your condition and follow the recommendations of the gynecologist, then the chances of having a healthy child will significantly increase.

Why smears during pregnancy? How dangerous is it?
Signs of pregnancy are confirmed by a medical examination, but suddenly there is a bloody discharge, reminiscent of menstruation. Someone in such a situation starts to panic, others react more calmly, but prudently show themselves to the gynecologist. Where does this phenomenon come from and how dangerous is it? This question should ask every expectant mother.
Can it smear during pregnancy?
Even when the pregnancy has obviously occurred, sometimes discharge from the vagina appears that looks like menstrual, but less intense and, as a rule, darker, the colors of coagulated blood. In such cases, doctors and patients say: smears during pregnancy - and are looking for the cause of the change in the future mother's condition.
Highlight can be lighter: cream, and almost brown. Their causes are different, so the doctor seems worth it. Only he can decide: whether these are natural changes in the body or a source of secretions should be sought in some pathologies.
Can smear during pregnancy, we have already figured out. And the most common cause of this phenomenon are hormonal changes in the mother's body. In the very first weeks, they are absolutely not dangerous. The amount of progesterone at this time increases, this leads to a "strain" of the vascular system and weak bleeding. Fortunately, this phenomenon is infrequent, and it is believed that it does not pose a threat to the fetus.
During pregnancy the so-called implantation period is weakly affected, that is, at the very beginning, at the time when the fertilized egg penetrates into the uterus, and it attaches to the wall of the uterus. In order to fix securely, the embryo prepares a nest for itself, slightly scraping the epithelium of the uterus. Since the time of conception, only 10-12 days pass, and this time frame should suggest the true cause of the discharge. But the doctor still needs to appear, he will exclude other causes of “smear” and make a competent prediction of the course of pregnancy.
Smears at the beginning of pregnancy: placental abruption and other pathologies possible
In the early stages quite often there is a small detachment of the placenta. It is not critical for either mother or child, and the problem is usually stopped by itself. But with more severe detachment of the placenta or chorion (outer shell of the fetus) smears at the beginning of pregnancy, and this can become a serious problem. The bleeding becomes quite strong, the placenta loses its ability to function normally, and the fetus may die as oxygen and nutrients stop flowing.
Another reason for this phenomenon is an ectopic pregnancy or the so-called frozen (when the fetus for some reason stops developing). In these cases, it really smells during pregnancy, and most often one has to resort to surgical intervention: full-scale or in a sparing form, laparoscopy. Sometimes it is possible to cause an artificial miscarriage with medication, the female genitals remain almost normal. After a few months, and better, after half a year, you can plan a new conception.
Ointment in the early stages of pregnancy and the threat of miscarriage
In the first trimester of pregnancy, women are often worried about leucorrhoea, that is, light discharge with an unpleasant odor. By themselves during this period they do not pose a threat, being a product of hormonal adjustment, but become an alarming bell, if they drastically change color and intensity, are complemented by purulent mucus. This is a signal of a possible exacerbation of a sexual infection. And the reason for contacting a specialist, start treatment.
Smears during pregnancy and in a situation of threatened miscarriage. In the initial periods, the maternal organism can simply reject the fetus as a kind of foreign body, for example, in a situation of Rh-conflict or other individual reactions. The first thing a woman should do: limit physical activity, cancel hot showers and baths, have to put a taboo on sex life - until the causes are fully revealed together with the doctor.
Concomitant symptoms also speak about the danger of miscarriage: pain in the lower abdomen, nagging sensations in the lumbar region, watery vaginal discharge, which can turn into heavy bleeding, if you do not take action in time. With timely treatment to the doctor and the strict implementation of appointments, the problem is stopped and the child can be saved.
Diseases of the sexual sphere
During pregnancy, the body functions with increased load. Therefore, resistance to the emergence of various infectious diseases weakens. The development of pathogenic microflora is accompanied by secretions with an unpleasant odor, itching, irritation of the intimate area. There may be fever and discomfort in the lower abdomen.
Discharge with an admixture of pus - a clear sign of sexually transmitted diseases or inflammation of the ovaries. The development of infection is dangerous infection of the fetus with its subsequent death.
Vaginal discharge accompany the woman throughout the gestation period. To understand the norm or pathology, first of all pay attention to their color. Normally, the secret is always white or transparent. There is no other symptoms (for example, itching or burning in the genital area).
The appearance of bloody, brown, green, yellow, cheesy discharge indicates a problem and requires a mandatory visit to the doctor. Early brown daub occurs on days of suspected menstrual bleeding. At this time, you should limit physical exertion, more rest. Careless attitude to their health on dangerous days is fraught with the threat of termination of pregnancy.
In some cases, the selection of brown - an indicator of ectopic pregnancy. The presence of additional symptoms is of great importance: pain in the lower abdomen, a feeling of weakness, increased daub from the genital tract. Bloody discharge dangerous miscarriage. Therefore, their presence is a serious reason for a quick visit to a specialist.
Yellow outflows are a sign of developing inflammation, the presence of a staph infection or E. coli. The appearance of fever, discomfort in the lower abdomen, an unpleasant amber from the intimate zone requires an early visit to the doctor and undergo an examination. Inflammation leads to complications, the most dangerous of which is miscarriage.
The presence of green secretions indicates the development of bacterial vaginosis. The appearance of fishy smell confirms the pathology. Inattention to such a state is the cause of the development of inflammation of the urogenital organs.
How to identify the cause of daub - diagnostic measures
Identifying the factor that provoked the daub is impossible without diagnostic measures. The primary ones are an examination on the gynecological chair and a thorough history taking.
If necessary, the doctor prescribes:
- smear on the flora and the presence of atypical cells on the uterine neck,
- ultrasound procedure,
- blood tests (for hCG, hormones, total).
In the absence of sufficient information for diagnosis, hysteroscopy, diagnostic curettage of the endometrium, or laparoscopy are performed.
What to do when daub
If any suspicious secretions appear, a woman should consult a doctor who is leading a pregnancy. The specialist, after examining the patient, will prescribe an examination, necessarily including tests for the detection of fungal and vaginal infections. When it is detected, appropriate treatment is prescribed, representing a minimal threat to the woman and her unborn child.
At detection of an erosion of a uterus electrocoagulation is shown. The risk of miscarriage is eliminated by the use of hormonal agents. Pregnancy requires surgery. Regardless of what caused the smear, it eliminates the independent use of any medication.
Proper lifestyle of a woman is of great importance for the normal development of the fetus.
To eliminate the occurrence of dangerous discharge from the genital tract or bleeding, it is necessary to remember about preventive measures:
- reduce the duration of hiking
- give enough time to rest and sleep,
- avoid stress factors
- limit or eliminate sexual intimacy.
If any discomfort occurs during the gestation period, especially in the early period, it is necessary to consult a doctor. Even in the absence of dangerous phenomena, a visit to a specialist will allow for a timely examination and to avoid the occurrence of complications.
Doctors say that the best prevention of problems during the gestation period is pregnancy planning. Experts recommend the plant complex for easy conception and successful gestation - “The Seraphim's Gathering". The tool has a minimum of contraindications and contains only Altai herbs that are useful and safe for a woman and a future baby.
The doctor tells about early discharge:
Spotting is observed throughout pregnancy. Whether they are natural or indicative of the development of violations, only a doctor can say for sure after conducting the necessary examination. To eliminate the presence of pathology and to decide on what to do to the expectant mother will help continuous monitoring of their own well-being throughout the entire period of pregnancy.
Discharge as a normal symptom of pregnancy
After conception, large-scale processes of changing hormonal balance occur in a woman’s body, which is responsible for maintaining pregnancy. These changes have a certain relationship to female secretions. Normally, the lubricant should have the following parameters:
- watery character
- weak intensity
- no smell, itching or burning.
The health of each woman is different, so the expectant mother may notice the appearance of brown or light discharge, most often before the first delay of menstruation. There are various reasons for the appearance of such a symptom, so do not worry in advance. If a woman does not yet know about pregnancy, this symptom may indicate conception and be a body response to fertilization.
Discharge as a sign of fertilization
If a woman is attentive to the various manifestations of her body, she can notice the onset of pregnancy through light brown secretions. But more often this symptom is hardly noticeable, and the future mother will know about the occurrence of pregnancy much later, due to the delay.
Brown discharge in early pregnancy should not cause discomfort to the woman, therefore, they are characterized by the absence of pain, odor or itching, and the intensity depends on the characteristics of the reproductive system. Such secretions are considered to be a normal reaction of the genital organs to the replacement of the hormonal background, which involves the work of the ovaries and the corpus luteum. When the body is completely reconstructed - the discharge will return to its usual form.
When fertilization of the egg occurs, its surface is immediately covered with membrane protection, and it begins to move towards the uterus. This period lasts approximately 1-2 weeks after the moment of conception and is determined by the woman’s own endocrine system. As soon as the egg has reached the uterus, the implantation process begins, in which the integrity of the tissues and vessels of the uterine endometrium is disturbed. Since the process does not cause intense bleeding, the blood has time to clot and the woman notes a brown or light shade of mucus.
Important! If the pregnancy is planned, and the woman noted such discharge in the possible period of embryo implantation, it is necessary to reduce any intensive loads for several days. This will allow the egg to firmly join the endometrium.
Formation of a stopper in the cervix
After fertilization of the egg, the reproductive system forms protection for the future fetus. For this purpose, a plug is created on the basis of dense mucus, which clogs the cervical canal of the cervix. It does not allow penetration of pathogenic microorganisms and antibodies of the mother, and also creates the correct microflora for the growth of the child. В этой пробке цервикальная слизь при беременности периодически обновляется, что провоцирует появление коричневых выделений в первом триместре.Normally, the selection is beige, but sometimes the lubricant becomes brown, the color is regulated by the balance of hormones of the female body.
"Memory" of the reproductive female system
At the normal level, the main hormone of pregnancy, progesterone, usually does not occur during pregnancy. If a woman suffers from a lack of progesterone, a symptom of false menses may be observed. This is due to the "misunderstanding" of the organism of pregnancy and manifests itself in the form of a luminous discharge of brown color. You can notice this symptom during the period when the next menstruation was due.
There is no particular danger of this phenomenon, but it is necessary to consult a doctor in charge and to observe a state of rest these days. A very low progesterone level will adversely affect the course of pregnancy, so the doctor will recommend inpatient monitoring.
For reference! Sometimes this symptom manifests itself in a pregnant woman every month, right up to the moment of delivery.
Pathological brown secretion in a pregnant woman
The appearance of brown discharge in the initial stage of pregnancy can often indicate the development of serious pathological processes. Therefore, in case of various health problems, the future mother should consult with the gynecologist. This will allow timely response to destructive changes and preserve the health of the baby.
Lack of hormone progesterone
Progesterone is responsible for the favorable course of the initial stage of pregnancy, first it is synthesized by the mother's body, and after 16 weeks - the placenta is formed. The lack of progesterone triggers bleeding, the results of which the expectant mother may notice in the form of brown discharge. Possible detachment of endometrial tissue below the attachment of the ovum.
The lack of the required amount of progesterone adversely affects the development of the child and the condition of the woman, often causing miscarriage. The lack of progesterone also causes detachment of the embryo, after which the fetus dies. You can notice the pathology of light brown secretions during pregnancy in the early stages, but if a woman notes the appearance of scarlet color, pulling pain - she should immediately get an appointment with a specialist.
The attachment of the ovum must occur in the upper part of the uterus, which is the correct placement of the fetus. But sometimes it happens in close proximity to the uterine throat - the bridge between the vagina and the uterus.
With a small embryo size, this pathology is not dangerous. When a full-fledged placenta is formed, as well as as the fetus grows, the pressure on the uterus increases, which leads to bleeding and a greater risk of miscarriage or the onset of early labor. Also, pathology can cause a delay in the development or hypoxia of the infant. Therefore, the expectant mother should be under constant medical supervision, and childbirth in this pathology is performed by caesarean section.
Fetal fetal death
In early pregnancy, it is extremely difficult to determine the presence of chromosomal abnormalities or mutations of the embryo. Fetal dying occurs in the presence of pathologies that are incompatible with life, or under the influence of infections of the reproductive system. Symptomatically manifested in the form of brown discharge during pregnancy in the early stages, the rapid deterioration of health, it is possible a sharp cessation of manifestations of toxemia, raising the temperature.
Important! Since fetal fading excludes the possibility of continuing pregnancy, a woman needs a procedure for curettage of the fetus and further study to determine the cause of the pathology.
Erosion of the neck and microtrauma of the vagina
The inflamed condition of the cells of the cervix called erosion or ectopia of the uterus can cause bleeding during pregnancy. Most often, the appearance of brown mucus occurs after direct contact of tissues with objects, for example, during a gynecological examination or sexual contact. This condition passes within 24 hours and does not require manipulation until the birth of the child. After birth, erosion treatment can be performed.
The appearance of a brown tint in the mucus can signal the beginning of a miscarriage. Bleeding appears as a consequence of the detachment of the ovum, extremely rarely - the placenta. Expectant mother notes the appearance of such symptoms:
- nagging pain,
- weakness and dizziness,
- nausea, vomiting.
If we turn to specialists in time, the process is reversible and the child can be saved. If an open bleeding occurs, the fetus dies, so the pregnancy stops.
Hormonal restructuring of the woman's body contributes to the activation of various ailments of the reproductive system. The appearance of brown discharge in early pregnancy may also indicate the following diseases:
- Endometriosis. Provokes intense mucous ointment with various blood impurities. With muscle tone of the uterus, abundance increases.
- Fibroids, uterine fibroids. Formations of a benign nature are the cause of brown ointments during the onset of the menstrual cycle outside of pregnancy.
- Polyps. Appear on the background of hormonal changes, are the cause of brown discharge from the expectant mother. Often determined at the first inspection and immediately removed.
Important! Diseases with hormonal imbalance directly affect pregnancy. To prevent any negative consequences, a woman should regularly visit a doctor and undergo all the required examinations.
Infectious diseases of the reproductive system
During pregnancy planning, as well as during registration, women undergo a full range of tests for the detection of infectious diseases. Since sexual intercourse is not prohibited for a properly proceeding pregnancy, the danger of infection exists all the time.
If a yellow or green mucus is detected, as well as severe itching, unpleasant odor, or swelling of the genital organs, the woman should undergo the necessary tests and promptly start drug therapy.
Attention! The bulk of pathogenic microorganisms causes destructive genetic changes in the fetus, and pregnancy sometimes fades.
What to do when brown secretions are detected
The future mother any discharge that is different from normal, should be the reason for visiting the doctor. Only a personal examination and test results will determine the cause of the pathology and prescribe treatment.
Immediate medical assistance is required in such situations:
- high bleeding rate
- bright red discharge, the appearance of blood clots,
- pains of a pulling or sharp nature, which can give to the lower back,
- fever, weakness and dizziness.
Any of these symptoms should be the reason for seeking emergency medical care, since the development of pathology at an early stage allows you to maintain the health of the child and continue the course of the pregnancy.
