Vaginal discharge during early pregnancy - What's normal?

I already have a question posted under "Increasing HCG levels, but u/s not matching gestational age".  You might want to read that to know my history.  I have been noticing an occassional discharge off and on.  It's not brown or red... just a sort of light beige.  It's not heavy, just a slight showing on my pantyliner.  I was reading a book that said that an increase in a whitish discharge is normal.  Has anyone else out there had this occur during a normal preganacy or is it only supposed to be white.  Please if anyone knows.///Thank You

i have. it's suppposed to be cream colored or white. it's because of the increasing levels of progesterone in your body. totally normal.

I already posted this in the wrong section, sorry!
  I am 8 weeks and have had tan discharge.  There isnt much of it and it isnt all the time.  I noticed it last night when i wiped.  Im not having any pain.  I read that some women "spot" around the time they would have normally had a period.  Anyone had the same?  Please, any news good or bad would be helpful.  thank you...

Hi! I am also 8 weeks pg and i am having the same discharge...my dr told it's a yeast infection and just to take monistat...so call your doc, it might be the same thing. it's very common in early pregnancy...hope this helps!

I  am trying to get pregnant. I have been for almost two months, I have taken a few pregnancy tests and they all say negative. But I have not had my period since we started trying. I also have noticed that I am having tan/beige colored vaginal discharge. Is this a sign of pregnancy??

I also been trying to get pregnant.I taught i was because my breast are hurting ,urinating often than usual ,i saw a sign of spotting and white discharge and then i saw some brownish pale blood the next day.If i am pregnant i will be only  2 weeks or so .Can that be implantation bleeding.  
I also did a pregnant test before that and it was negative but i think it was too early .Can all these be symptoms of pregnancy are the symptoms of period?       by aisha_27***@****

I did my first pregnancy test today and it was positive, this will be my third pregnancy, but i also realised that i had a beige discharge this evening, i never had this with previous pregnancies, but it is great to hear that it seems normal, as i was getting a lil worried.

If your pregnancy test says negative you are not pregnant I had the same problem 6 years ago I though I was pregnant I took like 10 pregnancy test all negative I didn't know what was wrong with me I didn't have a period for 2 months I finally went to my Dr. and nothing was wrong and I was not pregnant, he ask me if I change any habits I said to him I'm working out for 2 hours every day and I change my diet and he said the change was so drastic confused by body.  I hope this help.

I am so glad i found this site. I had the beige or cream color discharge with my son and they said it was from the progesterone suppositories irritating my cervix. My dh and i got pregnant now on our own and i am not on progesterone and started with a little of this again when i wipe. Thank you so much for helping put my mind at ease.

Hey emogirl, a more accurate sign of pregnancy is a missed period and a positive pregnancy test.  If you have not had either, don't worry.  Those signs could be due to other changes in your life, and they could also be the fact that you are worried about it.  The mind is very powerful and, if you worry, you bring the right symptoms into your body, when they are not 'real'  symptoms.  Please keep me posted. Good luck which ever final result you are hoping for :)

Hi Kassie, please read what I wrote to emogirl above.  Stop worrying until it's time to worry, and stop hoping until you really know.  These factors can case you to have symptoms you didn't have before.  There is also something called "Pseudocyesis" or "Imaginary Pregnancy" and you do not want to be caught on that :)  Keep me posted!!

I am 24 and trying to conceive my second child.  I had to get on a pill to try and regulate my period b/c It was only coming twice a year...  Now I have a period every month almost at the same time...  I have been experiencing clear discharge and usually only exp. that when I am ovulating, I ovulated like 2 wks ago, I have been extremely tired lately as I was with my first son almost six years ago also more heartburn then I usually have.  I hope that I am pregnant, I did take a pregnancy test 2 days ago and negative.  What does everyone think???

It is now june 17th and my period is ten days late.  My cycle was 31 days last month and I am now at the 41 day mark.  I am not taking another pregnancy test until friday, then I will be two weeks late, and that will be easier to detect...

It is now July 10th and I was due for my period the 8th.  It has not came yet.  I am having mild cramping, if I was pregnant I think that I would be about 6 weeks along, I am also having some bloating and lower back pain and I still have the same discharge plus about one week ago I noticed that I have a yeast infection.  I had a yeast infection very early in my last pregnancy, so i am wondering if i should use all these signs as an answer.  I have taken taken about 8 pregnancy test, 2 light positives and 6 negative.  Could somebody give me some advice or maybe tell me what they think about my problem...  I am convinced that I am pregnant, but i try to stop thinking about it, but I can't its drivin me up the wall.....!!!!

ok well im a month and a half pregnant and im having like a tan discharge...i thought it was well think maybe is a yeast inffection because its itchy but it also has this odor to it? my std test came back positive about 3 weeks ago so what is it?
Avatar universal
I don't normally have any sort of vaginal discharge.  I did with my first pregnancy but not with my second.  I'm not having any other pregnancy symptoms, but discharge.  It's white in color and doesn't smell.  I'm not due to start my period for another week, so I was wondering if this could be any early sign of pregnancy?  Please help....
