Hi doctor,

I am 32 years old, got married seven months back. I had regular 28 days cycle. Two months back, I had amenorrhoea for 40 days followed by urine pregnancy test positive but followed by bleeding and USG pelvis shows clear uterus, after seven days. Following this, I got some brownish discharge like sometimes, increased whitish discharge irrespective of the menstrual cycle. What can I do for this?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If the urine pregnancy test was positive then you got bleeding and then, bleeding and uterus empty, then maybe it was a complete miscarriage. Post bleeding, vaginal brown discharge might be infection or remains of miscarriage. To be on safe side have beta hCG and high vaginal swab to exclude infection and pregnancy. Follow with the reports. In case you have pain, immediately report to an emergency gynecologist.

The Probable causes:

Post-miscarriage or infection.

Investigations to be done:

HVS, beta hCG.

Treatment plan:

in case of pain, report to the emergency.
