    Anyone Have Brown Discharge About A Week after Selective Reduction?

    I had SR 5 days ago and today had a little brown discharge. Anyone else have this? Any idea what it is?

    Thanks

    I do not recall having brown discharge but my reduction was almost 5 years ago. The Brown discharge is most likely old blood and I do recall reading somewhere that light spotting after a reduction is not uncommon, so it's most likely what you're experiencing right now. I wouldn't be too concerned about it if it's just a little and it stops after a few days, but if you are concerned, don't hesitate to contact your OB/Peri and ask for an u/s or fetal heartbeat check, just to relieve your concern.

    Hope that helps.

    i didnt have any discharge at all. i also remember that some spotting was normal/possible. i dont know what it is from, but if you have any concern i would call the tdoc. i dont think they would mind.

    I'd call the doctor just to be sure, but like April said: brown means old. Problems usually involve larger amounts of bright red blood (and pain).

    I had some brown discharge over the course of several days after my reduction. The after-care sheet that my dr gave me said that this was normal - but if there was heavy, period-like bleeding, you should call as this would warrant a follow-up U/S.
