Does anyone have discharge that stains your underwear during pregnancy?

I have a discharge that looks brown in my undies but wipes clear on tissue. It does NOT stink so I don't worry too much. I just want to know if I am the only one who has this and does it go away after delivery.

  • how far along are you? does it happen often or only after an exam.? if that's the case it's probably dry blood from irritation from the exam. it will go away after you deliver, but if you are really concerned you can always ask your doctor.

  • Trust me, you're not alone... you could use a pantiliner to protect your undies. And yes, it does go away after pregnancy. Some women refer to this discharge stain as "the snail trail" b/c the mark it leaves in your undies looks like the trail a snail would make. Gross, huh?
