Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Are you having normal bowel movements or constipation ? If you are straining at stools, it is possible that the brownish streak is from the rectum. I hope you are absolutely sure that the brownish discharge is coming from the vagina. If yes, then it could be from the cervical lesion that you mention you had earlier. It could be a small erosion, polyp or growth on the cervix. Innocuous spotting also sometimes happens in the second trimester, without any identifiable reason. The fibroid on the cervix could be a very possible reason for the discharge. You should consult an Obstetrician at the earliest. Please have a detailed per vaginum and per speculum examination as well as local perineal examination to rule out anal fissure / fistula in ano. Also, an ultrasound scan should be done to rule out any possible causes of the discharge related to pregnancy such as - abnormal vessels near the cervix, low lying placenta, threatened abortion etc. Take rest, avoid stress, intercourse and exertion. All the best. Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

I've been constipated, I use seperate tissue for the vaginal and a different tissue for a bm, there is no staining on my panty liners as I use this just cause of prior bleeding I had up until like 11-12 weeks, im afraid to get a pap smear cause when that was done I had bleeding wherever I got touched, is there anyway I can avoid that and ask for a ultrasound without my doctor being offended?

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: There is no point of having a pap smear during pregnancy. Atleast please have an internal check up. You can definitely ask for an ultrasound without offending your doctor. In fact, when you mention brownish spotting that is happening, that is the next logical step that he should be mentioning. take care.

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello again. The stabbing sensation, as it is not a proper pain , would be the fetal movements and kicking that you would be feeling. Do not worry about it, rather, get used to it ! Take care.
