Hello doctor,

Currently, I am 7.3 weeks pregnant. Last Monday, I am having vaginal discharge mostly it is thick and in half white color with nominal blood in it. I went to a gynecologist she suggested me a sonography test. We performed the test the reports were normal. I suggested me to take rest but today I was feeling good. So I have done some light work and in the evening there were dark and light brown clots. I have during urination but with no blood or other problem just little leg cramp but nothing else. I want to know why this is happening to me. I am a hypothyroidism patient.



Welcome to

Please let me know your last menstrual period date. Also, if discharge is there and it is foul smelling and whitish curd like it is a candida infection. Do take Clingen vaginal tablet locally into the vagina once at bedtime for seven days. Also, take bed rest and tablet Duvadon 10 mg thrice a day for a week and tablet Naturogest (Progesterone soft gelatin capsules) 200 mg twice a day for a week. This is because you are saying there is a slight blood staining. Report to me after you get repeat ultrasonography.

Thank you doctor,

I had my last periods on 19th to 23rd June. I was suffering from UTI whole July. I have gone through the medication and performed test for UTI. Now I am good. Yes, the discharge consistency is like curd creamy in color just today it was in dark brown color, but there is no foul smell.



Welcome back to

By dates, you should be 8 weeks and 3 days pregnant. But your USG (ultrasound) growth shows a fetus of 6 weeks. So the growth of fetus is less. Please take Folvite (folic acid) 5 mg twice a day and Proteinex powder in milk twice a day. Take the treatment for discharge as advised.
