Hi,

Thanks for the query.

Brownish discharge is sometimes seen in early pregnancy. It is normal. But one has to be careful in view of abortion.

I suggest her to continue folic acid and dubagest. Ask your wife to avoid lifting heavy weight, travelling on bumpy roads, etc. And avoid intercourse. Get her repeat ultrasound scan done for baby's well being and to rule out abortion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any other queries.

Best wishes

Hi,
Thanks for writing back.
She may be having a problem so ultrasound for baby's well being is a must. She needs to see a gynecologist in person.

Hi,

Thanks again,

I understand your concern. I would still suggest you to get her examined by a gynecologist. Ultrasound examination is entailed; if the scans are normal, then nothing to worry.

Till then continue same treatment.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.

Best wishes
