View Full Version : discharge?
02-11-2011, 11:36 PM
So background info I never had a period as long as I did any kind breastfeeding except with ds3 at 1yr old started af and actually it was pretty regular, well ds4 is 16mos old I only feed him at night about 3 times and I nurse him at naptime on most days, (warning tmi)well for 2 days now I have had a thick snotty discharge that's dark brown, I don't need pantyliner or tampon(gotta order my divacup :) ) just when I wipe sometimes and or if I do a sweep up inside(around the cervix to collect) its dark brown sticky mucus like or snotty(stretchy too)?? Never had this before, no cramping, no odor(except the normal blood smell), absolutely nothing except this discharge, I know brown means old blood but what's it from? So confused, I googled it and didn't come up with anything....should NOT be pregnant unless my otc b/c failed which been using it for 9yrs now and never has so I am not worried there, but was wondering if anybody can help me, TIA :)

I won't be much help sorry. I remember having exactly the same thing at one stage - but I can not for the life of me remember when, or why. I'll be trying to remember though and let you know when I do. Just when I read your post I knew exactly what you were talking about because I could remember very clearly seeing the same thing with me.

Well 2 days of that and now nothing....should I take a test? Would that be signs of implantation bleeding? I am thinking more ovulation spotting which I know is possible never experienced but who knows with me lol it was just really weird to have brown snotty discharge

I'm sorry, I remember what I had was during pregnancy. Have you taken a test yet?

I have not done a test with fmu just one during the day and right before bed and its neg, I think maybe my hormones are having a hard time in getting af going lol I dont know all these symptoms are new to me, I am still spotting not slimy or snotty just brown and only occasionaly when I wipe, it never comes out on my panty liner, its been 9days now with this, I am really confused, IF I ovulated I have no clue when, and with all 4 of my pregnancies I got a bfp at 9dpo so I would think if I was pregnant and spotting then a test would show by now....wouldnt it? geez I hate being clueless lol

I googled "brown ewcm" and there's a good mix of "is it implantation?" type posts and many ovulation caused brown tinged thick sticky or ewcm- at first glance moreso the later as far as solid answers. I think I've had it with ovulation once or twice, not for days at a time though. But if it's not ovulation related or implantation.. still technically spotting right? Probably worth telling your doctor, at least that's what the sites always say about unexplained spotting (maybe they r overcautious though? since spotting can be caused by something as simple as stress.)

Thanks rachel :) I googled all kinds of things except "brown ewcm" lol I was going to wait it out but don't know how long to wait it out lol 9 days is pretty long but its only when I wipe so I don't think its dangerous as in becoming anemic and not really annoying, just more curious as why, I think I might wait a couple more days then give my doc a call, I log my cm and cp that's how I keep up with my cycles and being fertile or not.....but since I haven't actually had a period since brestfeeding then I don't know, I normally start tracking my cp and cm after my 1st period but when this happened I starting logging it down, so therefore I don't know if this could be ovulation or af trying to start? but will keep y'all posted :)

well I *think* af has arrived, I woke up this morning and when I wiped (tmi) there was bright red blood and lots, so I used a tampon (my divacup should be on its way) and havent changed it yet so I dont know if its the beginning of af or not, but I think that rules out pregnancy since that wouldnt be good and with someone that has history of m/c I would rather not know so no more pregnancy tests for me.....I think it was just my hormones having a hard time getting af agoing lol.....thanks for putting up with me :)
