First Trimester of Pregnancy Answer A9488
Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. A certain amount of spotting is normal in the first trimester because of congestion of the cervix but if you are having a brownish foul smelling discharge then it definitely needs evaluation and infections need to be ruled out. A culture sensitivity of the brownish discharge needs to be done to confirm the diagnosis. Please consult a gynecologist and get it done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For an exact diagnosis, you are advised to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
