Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A23966
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your normal fertility has returned and you are having periodic ovulation, the chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. Usually at the 6th week postnatal follow-up visit, women can get started on appropriate birth control to prevent another pregnancy (by the treating gynecologist/obstetrician). Your current symptoms (pink discharge, increased vaginal discharge, frequent urination, mild abdominal cramps) could be suggestive of possibility of early pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation/examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
