I'm 17 week 1 day pregnant. I'm having reddish brown discharge. Doctor has done sonography as well reports are normal. Baby growth is normal,heartbeat is also normal.
She has examined internally also bag is also closed, planceta is also not at lower side.
Then why discharge is there?
She has given sustained Sr 300 tablet and injection a week for a month. Is there anything to worry about?

Brief Answer:
Take rest and tablets as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mrs. XXXXXXX thanks for trusting health care magic.
I have seen the attached reports and glad to inform you that all are normal.
The discharge you had is probably just related to exertion and nothing else.
Take bed rest for at least 7 days, avoid having sexual contact with your partner and take good sleep.
In case cramping occurs or there is any excessive discharge or bleeding per vaginum then visit your gynecologist for examination at the earliest.
Till then keep taking the susten tablets as advised and weekly injections of proluton depot without a miss.
Both are very important and will prevent any bleeding in future.
Take care
Regards
Dr Manisha

Brief Answer:
No need to visit gynecologist before schedule

Detailed Answer:
No dear this subtle discharge will be gone soon so just take rest and visit your gynecologist as per schedule.
Keep taking susten tablets and proluton injections and you will be fine soon.
Also get a urine microscopy done to see if infection is the cause of your increased frequency of micturition.
All the best
