Does a brownish discharge in missed periods indicate pregnancy in a person trying to conceive ?

Hi I m a 23 years old married female. Actually me and my husband is trying to start a family. This month I missed my period missed in a sense that 4 dayz before my period was due I saw a brownish discharge I though it was my period but it wasnt like the period I use to have before it continued for 7 dayz with few traces of blood at times I had unprotected sex during my ovulation day and day before that. I was wondering what it could be?

It is only 4 days missed period.. first confirm the pregnancy by urine pregnancy test.. if it comes positive then you need get confirmed by ultra sound scanning.... need to go for ante natal counseling...

Dear Doctor, Is this the sign of pregnancy? My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 months. My period cycle is 27 days. I am always regular. Never in my life had I ever skipped a period or have it for longer than 28 days. My last period was on 10-Mar. Hubby and I intercoursed on 23-Mar (which was when my ovulation peaked). Today is 7-Apr. It s already 28 days and I have no period yet. But some strange things happened a few days ago. I kept having a feeling of period was coming. Something was flushing out. As soon as I went to the loo and checked, nothing came out except for some white discharge. Now, a few days have passed. That feeling of period has gone but there was no blood at all. I have taken HPT and went to doctor today. all negative. maybe it s too early to detect. Is my above situation a sign of pregnancy? Thanks for your help.

I have been tested and told that I could not conceive unless I tried Invitro. I have been having symptoms ofbrown discharge, missed period, bloating, nauseous, etc. I thought it maybe a cyst (I have had fibroid and cyst removal in the past). My doctor told me to take a pregnancy test...I took 4 all positive. I am not convinced that I am pregnant. Can it be ectopic? Hypothyroid disorder? Antidepressants causing the positive result?

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.

My nephew, 8years old had an internal injury on his right kidney. Doctors did a surgery on his tummy to remove the blood from inside. after 2 weeks the kid started complaining on pain in the tummy. after an ultra sound examination, doctors found that haematoma around the right kidney had increased & there was free fluid around the haematoma and in the pelvis.

- Is there any reason to remove the kidney?

- What treatment should he be given?
