My husband and I have been trying to conceive since I had my merina removed a year and a half ago and on ovalation days I have a thick discharge like ovalation but brown and now I am suppose to start my period tomorrow if not pregnant and am having a light white discharge. Could I be pregnant or did it fail again this month? We have never had trouble before. I wa pregnant w/all 3 of my children w/in 2 months of trying :(
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The brown discharge could suggest possibility of ovulation, infective causes, hormonal changes etc. The periods can also be delayed by 5-10 days (which is considered as normal). Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
If you have been trying for pregnancy (for more than a year) and have not been successful, you should consider getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up and monitoring as instructed.
