Pain during urination, was on catheter, white discharge from urethra, brown discharge post childbirth. Treatment?

I gave birth 2 months ago (had an epidural which in turn I also needed a cathater). Ever since, I have been feeling a slight pain during urination - almost the same discomfort of when I had the cathater inserted. The discomfort has subsided for the most part, but about 2 weeks ago I noticed a slight white discharge from my urethra . My doctor did take a urine sample and he said that everything was fine. Now I just noticed that I am now having a brown discharge from my urethra. What is this and why is it happening? I ve been with my husband now for 5 years and this was our first child. Any thoughts?.

welcome to HCM.

Pain during urination with brown discharge indicate some sort of infection probably Urinary Tract Infection or liver dysfunction.

Do a fresh Urine analysis along with Liver Function Test.Check the result and consult with your doctor.

You may take some antibiotics like Ofloxacin or Norfloxacin combined with Metrogyl +urine alkalizer like Syp Uriliser or Alkarex (+/-) antispasmodic med.

Also drink plenty of water with glucose,maintain personal hygiene,empty bladder timely and wear cotton underwear.

Be well.
