What do spotting after periods indicate?
might be ovulation spotting.
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
I read carefully your query.
Most likely the brownish/pink discharge might be ovulation spotting considering the fact that your last period were on 1st April.
Usually ovulation spotting may last only 1-2 days and in rare cases up to 4 days ,and it is associated with a mild lower abdominal pain in one side.
If this last more than few days or you have other symptoms ,then it might not be related with ovulation and may need evaluation.
Hope it helps.
Let me know if you have any other question or doubts to clarify.I would be happy to help.
I feel quite sick aswell but it comes and goes in waves & Iv got no appetite.
Try not to think bad things.
Considering the fact that your last menstrual cycle was on 1st April,it is more likely to be ovulation spotting,although it has never happened to you before.It is unpredictable and some months can happen ,other months no or can happen once in a while.
This usually is confused with implantation bleeding that usually occur between 6-12 days after ovulation and it is an early sign of pregnancy.
Ovulation usually happens between 12-16 days from the next expected period.
So if you have regular periods and an 28 days cycle ,the ovulation should have happened between April 13 and April 17.
Since the date of ovulation can change from month to month ,is it is difficult to determine it for sure ,so pregnancy is not excluded.
You may need to wait for the next period and see what happen.
Try not to think bad things and just give it some time.I don't think it is something serious.
