Brown discharge after ovulation, is this normal ?

I have brown discharge that seems to constantly happen around 10 days after ovulation . Sometimes it lasts a few days, then goes away, sometimes it lasts until my period (I have 27 day cycles and ovulate on day 10 or 11). My husband and I are seeing a fertility specialist because we haven t been able to get pregnant for almost 2 years of trying. I have had my progesterone levels checked for the past few months, and the numbers indicate all is healthy and well. However, I ve always had a sneaky suspicion that the brown discharge could be contributing to my infertility . Any thoughts?

hi welcome to Healthcare Magic

Normal ovulation takes place on 14th day of cycle.. there is also some mucus secreted during that period.. yours discharege can also might be physiological.. as the other harmonal reports are normal , nothing much to worry.. to find the cause for infertility you needed to be clinically evaluated..

Hi,thanks for query.Discharge around the time of ovulation at times is normal.Continuous discharge after this is not normal.Also look for staining of under garment,if it stains is suggestive some infection.Please talk to your doctor.bye.

hello
Menstrual flow often consists of several layers, which include old blood, endometrial lining, nutrients etc. All these layers are discharged together as menstrual flow. However, at times only a layer of nutrients may be discharged before the actual menstrual flow. This causes the brown discharge before period or few days after ovulation.
polps,oral contraceptive pills,implantation bleeding also cause brown bleeding.
Brown discharge before period rarely leads to complications.
t is important to stay healthy from inside. Proper diet, exercises, and drinking a lot of water can cleanse you from within, thus alleviating the possibility of any menstrual problems.

Hi there, i have had regular periods since i started my menstral cycle at the age of 11. Everything has been pretty normal. I am now 42. About 6 months ago i noticed brown d/c with red strands at the time of ovulation. It happens jut once although the brown d/c continues for 2-3 days. 2 of those 6 months this didnt happen. I am not sure why this has happened for the first time in my life. Could be my age? not sure. This month day 14 i noticed the red strands but this morning (day 15) i woke up with a very light pink flow of blood and it has continued all day. Since last night it almost feels like i have my period coming on. Sore back and belly cramps and very tired. I have had a big fright and unsure again what is happening. I went to visit the gyno on day 11 of my cycle (few days back). She did an annual smear test so awaiting the results on that. She also carried out an ultrasound and noticed a small 1.9cm cyst on my right ovary. Told me to return in 3 months and that it shouldnt be a problem. about 15 years ago i had surgery to remove a cyst but have really taken care of my health and no issues have come up so im not concerned about the cyst. A woman knows when something is not right and hence visiting the gyno as i was getting strong twitches. She also noticed my endometrial lining was a little thick..She said it could be my structure yet for someone who has just come off her period, its not normally the case. I was also diagnosed with a severe case of thrush. I took a vaginal canesten tablet that night and diflucan (oral). i also took another diflucan tablet last night (day 14) which was 3 days later after seeing the gyno. I did notice the next day that the vaginal tablet has bits coming out of me with tiny red dots......i figured it was the tablet. I am not sure if this is all linked. I last had intercourse on the 14th of April and then the 28th of April. MY period was a little clotty but normal 6-7 days of heavy bleeding and then light (so basically normal period). Please can you tell me 1) Why has my body seen changes in the last 6 months? is it age? 2) are these red strands and pink flow ovulation bleeding and nothing to worry about? 3) if not, what could it be? FYI i called my gyno and she told me to come next month if the pink flow reoccurs. Any advise would be much appreciated.

I am a 38-year-old male, 6 ft in height and 87 kgs in weight. I had been diagnosed with moderate scalp Psoriasis in late 2007, after which I went in for homeopathic treatment for nearly a year. There was a some relief and I discontinued treatment in 2009. In 2010 I developed reddish Psoriatic rashes on my chest for which I have been under no specific medication. Now in 2011, a semen sample analysis was done for me in connection with efforts for my wife's conceiving a second child. The results showed male infertility with my condition being termed Oligo Asthena Teraspermia (OAT) which is essentially a negative on all three factors of male fertility. I happened to learn that immunological disorders like Psoriasis contribute to Male infertility in at least 10% of the cases. Is this true? And should I see a connection between my two conditions?
