A woman who is monitoring her health will be on the alert if the nature and color of her discharge changes, because it is by these signs that serious diseases are diagnosed in the early stages. Of particular concern is staining whiter in pink color, which indicates blood impurities. But in this case it is not always necessary to worry, as this may be a physiological feature. But sometimes it is worth paying special attention to them, especially if they are accompanied by indisposition.

  • Non-dangerous causes of pinkish discharge

    • Pink discharge during pregnancy
    • Postpartum discharge
  • Pink discharge as a symptom of pathology

What secretions are considered normal

Slightly pink staining of discharge within 1-2 days after the end of menstruation is acceptable. This condition most often occurs with reduced blood clotting or weakened uterine contractility, when it forms a small stagnation of menstrual mucus.

Pink discharge during this period is considered normal, if they have no unpleasant smell, the color is pale, do not contain large clots or lumps, are not accompanied by discomfort. After a maximum of 2 days, the whites acquire their usual appearance, and by the middle of the month they resemble the appearance and color of egg white.

Non-dangerous causes of pinkish discharge

The reason for the appearance of pink discharge may be increased blood circulation in the uterus and increase its tone in the last days of menstruation. The emergence of these factors contribute to:

  • active physical activity (sports, weightlifting),
  • sexual intercourse 1-2 days before the cessation of menstruation,
  • sauna, bathing in hot water, stay in the hot sun,
  • taking aspirin or other blood thinners,
  • emotional stress
  • alcohol intake.

The normal physiological process is ovulatory bleeding - bleeding, which appear approximately 10 days after menstruation. They are associated with rupture of the sheath of the follicle and damage to its vessels. Allocations are so scarce and short-lived that a woman can not pay attention to them. For those who are looking forward to the onset of pregnancy, the appearance of reddish whiter suggests that ovulation has occurred, in the following days the probability of conception is maximum.

Spotting occurs when a woman takes birth control pills, is treated with hormonal drugs, a spiral is installed in the uterus.

The reason for the appearance of blood in the whites may be damage to the vessels of the vaginal mucosa during sexual intercourse. This is due to insufficient production of mucus, which moisturizes and lubricates the surface (for example, when a woman is not sexually aroused). Vaginal dryness is one of the characteristic symptoms of menopause. As a result of aging of the ovaries and a decrease in the level of estrogen in the body, the production of mucus during this period decreases sharply.

Addition: When menopause, the appearance of any heavy brownish-pink discharge after menstruation should be treated with special attention. Often they indicate the development of tumors, including malignant tumors, the probability of which at this age is quite high. You should visit the gynecologist at the first sign of such ill-being in order to prevent cancer.

Pink discharge in girls

As early as 1 year before the first menstrual period, girls appear white with a slightly yellowish tint. The onset of ovarian maturation is associated with sharp fluctuations in hormonal levels. As a result, during 1.5-2 years menstruation comes irregularly, weak bloody leucorrhoea and even heavy intermenstrual bleeding may appear. If the pink discharge does not cause irritation of the genitals, there is no large blood loss, they are not dangerous. You should contact your doctor if you experience dizziness and weakness, which may indicate a lack of iron in the body due to bleeding.

Pink discharge during pregnancy

If there is a pink discharge after a delayed menstruation, this may indicate the onset of pregnancy and the introduction of the ovum into the mucous membrane of the uterine wall (implant bleeding).

Sometimes fertilization of the egg occurs just before the beginning of menstruation. At the same time, a woman has scant menstrual-like bleeding in due time due to the fact that part of the endometrium is already damaged. The appearance of spotting bloody whiter several days after their cessation becomes a sign of the detachment of the ovum.

If a woman does not realize her position and is not in a hurry to visit a doctor, then a miscarriage will occur, which she will take for intermenstrual bleeding. In the case when the pregnancy is desired, the woman closely follows the appearance of her symptoms, such discharge should be alerted. It is necessary to urgently visit the doctor, start treatment to save the pregnancy.

There may be bloody leucorrhoea, accompanied by spasmodic pain at any point in the lower abdomen. This is one of the symptoms of ectopic pregnancy - a condition in which urgent medical care is needed.

"False periods" can appear even during the first few months of pregnancy. For menstruation take reddish discharge, appearing in connection with the peculiarities of the hormonal changes. They are more scarce than usual. Changing the character of whiter in a woman who lives sexually requires increased attention. Without knowing about her pregnancy, she can continue to smoke, consume alcoholic beverages, take medications, which will adversely affect the development of the fetus and the health of the baby.

Postpartum discharge

Monthly, depending on the state of health and breastfeeding regime occur approximately in 1.5-12 months after birth. Their character sometimes changes, as the uterus stretches and shifts during pregnancy and childbirth. Pink whites at the end of menstruation should alarm a woman when at the same time there are pains in the lower abdomen, cramps during urination, itching in the genitals. This indicates the introduction of infection, the presence of not previously detected damage to the birth canal, poor healing of the stitches, the occurrence of cervical disease.

Pink discharge as a symptom of pathology

About the presence of pathology they say, if at the end of menstruation women have a discharge with the following signs:

  • red or burgundy color
  • unpleasant smell
  • increased intensity
  • the presence of foreign inclusions (lumps, clots, foam),
  • Duration more than 2 days
  • common cycle disorder.

In diseases of the discharge, as a rule, pain of a pulling or spasmodic nature, general weakness. Temperature may rise.

Hormonal changes. They lead to menstrual disorders. There are pink discharge after menstruation and in the middle of the cycle. Causes of hormonal failure are diseases of the thyroid gland and the pituitary gland. Often the pathologies lead to metabolic disorders (exhaustion or obesity), liver disease, pancreas.

Violation of the cellular structure of the mucous membranes. The presence of bloody impurities in the mucus is a sign of endometriosis, erosion, leukoplakia and cervical dysplasia.

Neoplasms in the genitals. Reddish whites often occur with the appearance of cysts in the ovaries, polyps, fibroids, and uterine cancer.

Inflammatory and infectious processes. The cause of discharge can be vulvitis, cervicitis, endometritis, salpingitis - inflammation of the mucous membranes of the external and internal genital organs. Inflammatory processes are the result of various infectious diseases of the genital organs (thrush, gonorrhea, chlamydia and others).

With the occurrence of all these pathologies, careful diagnosis and timely treatment is required. The appearance of such a symptom as unusual whites at the end of menstruation should be a reason to visit the doctor.

During pregnancy

When a representative of the weaker sex of reproductive age appears yellow-pink discharge after menstruation in the previous cycle, and the bleeding does not open for several days, the probability of pregnancy can be considered.

Depending on the characteristics of the cycle, fertilization occurs before the bleeding itself, which after implantation of the embryo to the wall of the uterus will unambiguously be scarce. If 2 days after menstruation, pink discharge was noticed, it is possible that the fertilized egg exfoliated.

In this case, spontaneous abortion is not excluded, if you do not visit the gynecologist in time and do not take any measures. If a girl plans to soon become a mother, then such a symptom should alert her, especially if it is accompanied by spasmodic pain in the lower abdomen, because it is possible that this is an ectopic pregnancy.

During the first few months of carrying a child, the girl may have a so-called false menstruation. Often they appear as scanty brownish secretions. They are not dangerous if their volume does not increase, and there is also no pain. This indicates a kind of restructuring of the body and changes in hormonal levels.

After childbirth

Pink discharge in women after menstruation can be observed when performing breastfeeding. It must be said that the period of recovery of the regularity of the cycle after the birth of the child into the world depends on many factors. If you are breastfeeding, then menstruation may be absent during the year.

When feeding a baby with mixtures of bleeding come after one and a half months. Definitely, it can be said that the nature of these secretions will differ from those that were before labor, since the period of childbearing was accompanied by stretching of the reproductive organ, and after performing its function, it began to return to its former size.

Definitely should be alerted pink discharge with an unpleasant smell after menstruation, especially if they are accompanied by itching and burning in the genitals. This may indicate that an infection of the birth canal has occurred and a pathological process is developing that needs to be stopped.

Sometimes the occurrence of such secretions may indicate that a woman develops a complex and dangerous disease of the reproductive organs or disrupts the reproductive system. To see this and decide on a trip to a specialist, you need to pay attention to the presence of some alarming symptoms.

On the development of pathology indicate:

  • Discoloration of selections that become bright red or burgundy,
  • There is a pronounced unpleasant smell from the vagina,
  • The secret produced is intense and intense.
  • Discharges contain lumps, clots, foam, mucus,
  • The state does not pass for two days or more,
  • There is destabilization of the menstrual cycle.

Also for the development of diseases is considered normal the presence of pain in the lower abdomen of a pulling nature, the occurrence of general weakness and increased fatigue, changes in body temperature.

If hormonal hormones fail, this will definitely affect the nature of menstrual bleeding. They may become scarce or abundant, their color, consistency and duration change. These conditions develop with thyroid and pituitary dysfunction, impaired metabolism, liver and pancreas diseases.

When, when examining secretions in them, mucus is visible to the naked eye, this may indicate that pathological changes have occurred in the lining of the reproductive organ. In this case, women may develop cervical erosion, leukoplakia, endometritis, endometriosis, and dysplasia.

In the formation of pathological neoplasms of benign or malignant nature, certain changes in menstrual flow will also be noted. Pink after menstruation indicates a possible development of cysts, polyps, fibroids, cancers.

Often with the appearance of pink discharge after menstruation, when the girl goes to the doctor for examination, infectious diseases are detected during the diagnosis, including adnexitis, vaginitis, cervicitis. Often they appear as a result of thrush, chlamydia, gonorrhea.

If one or more warning symptoms are noted together with the presence of pink after a monthly discharge, you should go to a gynecologist as soon as possible. An experienced doctor will conduct an examination and set the final diagnosis, after which the most suitable treatment tactics will be developed.

The menstrual cycle and its normal course

The cycle of menstruation - this is the length of time from the beginning of one regul and until the next. Normally, its duration is from 21 to 35 days. In the period between the monthly observed secretion of the secret from the vagina. In the absence of pathologies, leucorrhoea after menstruation is odorless. They are transparent and fairly bright.

Towards the middle of the cycle, whites change their consistency and increase in volume, and at the end they thicken and may have a sour smell.

The period of critical days varies within 3–7 days. The volume of lost menstrual blood in the normal course of menstruation is 50-150 ml.

White, clear and pale pink discharge after menstruation and other periods of the cycle may appear. They are distinguished by color and character. They are:

  • brown, similar to regulations,
  • pink
  • scarlet
  • transparent, with the presence of blood streaks.

After completion of the regulation, pink daub is considered as a variant of the norm, but sometimes it indicates the development of pathologies. If you discover the secret of unnatural color in women should not occur discomfort and pain.

Causes of pink discharge

The reasons provoking the appearance of whiter with a pink tint, are both physiological and pathological. In some cases, these changes are considered normal, but often signal diseases of the genitourinary system.

Valid options when after the monthly go pinkish whites, are the following cases:

  • the process of restoring the cycle in the postpartum period,
  • reception ok
  • installation of intrauterine device,
  • discharge after examination by a gynecologist,
  • last day regula
  • ovulation period.

Often pink mucus is observed immediately after the completion of menstruation. This phenomenon is considered normal. This leaves the remnants of the monthly. If these symptoms appeared while taking oral contraceptives, then the woman just needs to replace the hormonal drug with another one.

Light pink whites that appear in the middle of the cycle are called ovulation. They are caused by the opening of the follicle, the release of the ovum and the preparation of the genital organ for its adoption.

The appearance of pink discharge after examination on the gynecological chair is due to the formation of microcracks. As soon as the mucosal integrity is restored, these symptoms will disappear.

Pink discharge after a week after menstruation often indicate the beginning of the pathological process, especially in cases where such a secret is accompanied by itching, irritation and other uncharacteristic symptoms. A woman needs to give up sex for a while and seek help from a doctor.

To provoke the appearance of whiter uncharacteristic shade can:

  • infectious diseases,
  • functional disorders of the ovaries,
  • education in the urogenital system,
  • pathologies of the endocrine system,
  • ectopic pregnancy.

An increase in whiter volume, a change in consistency and color can signal the beginning of an inflammatory process and the penetration of an infection into the body. If they become profuse, and the test shows a positive result, then ectopic pregnancy and rejection of the placenta can be suspected.

Scarlet secretions appear when cervical erosion occurs. Pinkish leucorrhoea is observed with endometritis in the uterus. Blood streaks in secret indicate the beginning of the inflammatory process.

What to do if you find yourself in the pathology

If the pink discharge after menstruation is accompanied by other clinical manifestations, including itching, burning, pain, or an unpleasant smell, then most likely they indicate the presence of the disease. Need to seek help from a gynecologist. A specialist will immediately determine the causes of such changes in the body and prescribe adequate treatment.

Even minor discomfort is the reason for the visit to the doctor. In no case can not resort to self-healing.

Бели розового цвета, появившиеся после окончания критических дней, нередко указывают на развитие заболевания, но могут быть и нормальным явлением. Only a doctor can determine the causes of their occurrence.

Pink discharge in women: the nature of occurrence

Such a phenomenon as pink discharge is quite common and in 65% of cases it does not signal a disease, but is explained by certain physiological processes, provided that it is not accompanied by discomfortable sensations.

The secret of this color can have different shades and texture: pale pink, light red, yellow pink, curd, liquid and thick, slimy and transparent. (Variety of shades and composition you can see on the selection of photos). It all depends on the characteristics of the organism and the reasons that gave rise to this phenomenon.

Such characteristics are also associated with the composition of the mucous secretion secreted by the glands of the female genital organs, and with a small amount of blood, which due to certain circumstances enters the mucus.

The quality of secretion determines the consistency of what stands out from the vagina.

Hormones and OK

Basically, this secretion is due to the flow of the menstrual cycle and the displacement of hormonal balance.

Light pink secretions are observed at the peak of the content of the female hormone estrogen. It has a strong effect on the uterine lining, so that it is ready to receive a fertilized egg. This moment is identified with ovulation and is characterized by a pale pink slimy secret.

Pink mucous secretions can be the result of hormonal contraceptives, changing the balance of estrogen and progesterone, or installation of the intrauterine device. In this case, you should contact your doctor to adjust the regimen of drugs or choose other means of protection.


Early pregnancy causes this symptom due to hormonal changes in the woman’s body.

An allergic reaction to medications, to intimate hygiene products, to synthetic underwear can provoke pink watery discharge. This explains the appearance of pink vaginal discharge in girls who have not reached reproductive age.

Rehabilitation period

Unusual bright pink discharge, not associated with the flow of the menstrual cycle, may be the result of gynecological and surgical procedures, as a result of which the integrity of the tissues of the uterus or vagina has been disrupted.

Even long-healed wounds often make themselves felt pinkish drops on linen. This phenomenon is characteristic of the rehabilitation period after medical, vacuum abortion, curettage, cleansing, biopsy and even gynecological examination.

Intense and rough sex, lack of lubrication from your partner can affect the onset of the symptom. Sometimes lubricants irritate the mucous membrane of the vagina, and when it is mechanically affected, small vessels are damaged.

Infections and Bacteria

If you began to observe a white or yellow-pink discharge with an unpleasant odor, pink curd discharge and itching and burning in the intimate area, pain during urination, then such symptoms indicate urinary disorders.

It is worth paying for this symptom during menopause. If he showed up before menopause, then this phenomenon is valid, if after, then it is necessary to diagnose. Perhaps we are talking about neoplasms in the tissues of female organs.

Pink discharge in the middle of the cycle

The quality of natural discharge depends on the menstrual cycle. With its course changes the level of female hormones. In the middle of the cycle, ovulation occurs, during which the hormonal background reaches its peak. For these reasons, under the active influence of estrogen, the endometrium is awaiting the introduction of an egg that has matured and leaves the follicle. A follicle micro rupture may occur, accompanied by pink-brown secretions.

Therefore, in the ovulatory period, designated 14 days before the onset of menstruation, pale pink discharge within 1-2 days is quite acceptable. Similarly, ovulation makes itself felt in 28% of women. This moment is considered the most favorable for conception.

If menstruation is prolonged or the pinkish discharge does not disappear on the 8th and 9th day of the cycle, lower abdomen hurts, then we can assume the presence of uterine fibroids.

Pale pink after menstruation

Some representatives of the weaker sex may show light pink mucous discharge at the end of menstruation or brownish pink with clots in a week. The described phenomena are permissible, provided there is no unpleasant smell and pain.

Often in women's forums discuss the question of why after the monthly there are pale pink discharge and itching. Symptomatology speaks of the inflammatory process or infection of the genital tract, the manifestation of which increases in the post-menstrual period.

Pink secretion during pregnancy

Occasionally, a woman sees transparent pink discharge in the first days after conception. This is how the uterus reacts to the implantation of the still ovarian egg. This is influenced by a sharp hormonal adjustment.

The appearance of slightly pink discharge instead of menstruation can talk about the onset of pregnancy. It's about early term. At this point, the risk of miscarriage is great, so expectant mother these days should pay special attention to her health and exclude physical exertion.

Should alert the secret with a pinkish tinge in the second and third trimester. Secretion, accompanied by a pulling sensation in the lower abdomen and other discomfort, requires taking measures to prevent miscarriage. At a later date, especially the last two months before the birth of the baby, the sign indicates the threat of the onset of preterm birth.

Pink or serous discharge during pregnancy, accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen, radiating to the lower back, nausea, weakness, dizziness, indicate that the fetus is transient, and if the period is short, ectopic pregnancy. In such cases, you should immediately consult a doctor.

Abnormal pink vaginal discharge

When such secretions are too abundant, develop into bleeding, are accompanied by painful sensations, then it is safe to speak about pathology.

Periodic pinkish secretion, prolonged menstruation, arching feeling in the intestine, pelvic pain indicate uterine myoma, erosion of her cervix or polyps.

Often, this color of the sexual secret gives a hidden tumor. Therefore, if a symptom appears suddenly, and it is not associated with the menstrual cycle, it is necessary to make an appointment with a doctor, take a smear for cytology and perform a biopsy to exclude cancer.

Whitish pink fluid can be released from the urethra and indicate urethritis - inflammation of the walls of the urethra.

The described symptom characterizes and inflammatory processes in the background of infection. There may appear pink cheesy, yellow blood-like discharge in the middle of the cycle. They are distinguished by an unpleasant odor, itching, burning in the intimate zone, and especially make themselves felt at the end of sexual intercourse.

In order not to miss the problem, it is important to monitor the nature of vaginal discharge. If they suddenly acquired a pink hue, and this is in no way connected with the period of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy and hormonal fluctuations are excluded, you should inform your doctor about this and in no case self-medicate. Be healthy!

Highlight pink after menstruation

Pink discharge after menstruation, what is it, why does it appear and does it need treatment? This may be a variant of the norm, for example, a consequence of the use of certain contraceptives, or a sign of a disease - the body or cervix.

The reasons why after menstruation pink discharge may lie in the established intrauterine device. Often it gives such intermenstrual discharge and increases the volume of blood lost during menstruation. Usually in such cases, doctors recommend changing the method of protection from unwanted pregnancy, remove the intrauterine system.

Also, the discharge of pink after menstruation occurs when a woman takes oral contraceptives (pills for unwanted pregnancy). Especially in the first three menstrual cycles, then it is considered the norm, not a reason to stop taking. Moreover, the presence of these secretions, usually very scarce, is not an indicator of the ineffectiveness of the method of contraception.

Normally, pink discharge in the middle of a cycle occurs on the day of ovulation. But not all women, of course. Rather, it is an exception. Explained by the reaction of the endometrium to hormonal changes. Daub lasts no more than 2 days, while there may be discomfort in the ovary region. When a woman complains of pink discharge a week after her period, while she does not have gynecological pathologies, then the doctor thinks of this particular feature. It is possible to get rid of it only in one way - to prevent the onset of ovulation. And this, in turn, is possible for those who take oral contraceptives.

And it happens that there is a pink, odorless discharge and pulls the abdomen at about the 20th day of the menstrual cycle. If a woman had unprotected sexual intercourse, then it can be assumed that this is the so-called implant bleeding. But to know for sure whether the conception occurred, it will be possible only at least 3-4 days before the expected day of the onset of menstruation or its delay with the help of a highly sensitive pregnancy test or blood test for hCG. At the same time, implantation bleeding is not a reason to think that pregnancy will proceed with the threat of termination.

More serious if pale pink discharge after menstruation is caused by chronic endometritis. This is an inflammatory process in the endometrium that began as a result of any intrauterine intervention: the installation of the helix, abortion, hysteroscopy, hysterosalpingography, etc.

Also, with such symptoms, it is necessary to check the condition of the cervix. Similar discharge, especially after sexual intercourse, is a symptom of endocervicitis. This is an inflammation of the mucous membrane of the cervical canal. It occurs most often when infected with chlamydia (chlamydia) or gonococci (gonorrhea).
The unpleasant smell of discharge, similar to the one that comes from rotten fish, indicates vaginal dysbiosis - bacterial vaginosis.

All these diseases are successfully treated. It is important to run them. Otherwise, the inflammatory process will cover all internal genital organs and lead to infertility.

Pink discharge after menstruation

Pink discharge after menstruation - This is a variety of consistency and color of vaginal discharge, consisting of blood, cells of the epithelium lining the uterus and a transparent vaginal secretion, which is especially actively produced during the period of ovulation. That is why the selection in the middle of the cycle is also called ovulation.

Depending on the proportion of blood and secretion, brownish, white, yellowish, pinkish, transparent, turbid, bloody, frothy, jelly-like, cheesy discharge of conditionally "pink" color are distinguished.

Pink discharge after menstruation is a common phenomenon that many women face, but this is not always the reason for going to the gynecologist.

When to go to the doctor?

If the discharge after menstruation has a logical cause (mechanical damage to the cervix and mucous membrane, hormonal imbalance caused by taking contraceptives) is not large, painlessly and does not cause additional symptoms, there is no reason to consult a doctor.

When secretions appear for no reason, they are accompanied by a change in their usual color to dirty (grayish, greenish, almost black), bloody, sometimes with pus, abdominal pain, lumbar discomfort, unpleasant smell, itching, irritation - immediately go to the antenatal clinic. Normally, brownish bloody discharge after menstruation, caused by blood clotting, which follows menstruation much slower than in 1-3 days of menstruation, should not last longer than 3 days.

White cheesy discharge with a sour smell most often indicate thrush, and yellowish or greenish - to bacterial infections. Red discharge before menstruation should also be alerted - this may be a sign of erosion.

Causes of "pink" discharge

Pale pink, brownish, bloody, smearing, stretching and other vaginal discharge can be caused by the following reasons:

  • residual blood after menstruation,
  • the effect of the hormone estrogen on the uterine lining during ovulation, when the uterus is vigorously preparing to receive a fertilized egg and is bleeding a little,
  • the presence in the body of a woman's intrauterine device, also affecting the hormonal balance,
  • taking oral contraceptives
  • gynecological manipulations on the eve of the appearance of discharge,
  • sexually transmitted infections, chronic diseases (chronic endometritis),
  • malignant tumors (myoma),
  • cervical erosion,
  • thrush
  • purulent cervicitis,
  • too intense sex, discrepancy between the size of the penis and the vagina, incorrect posture during sex,
  • ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage (if the discharge lasts more than a week),
  • severe childbirth, abortion.

Medical treatment

A. Treatment in the absence of pathologies

Treatment methods for pink discharge after menstruation depend on the cause of them. Sometimes it's enough just to eliminate this cause. For example, if a bright red discharge after menstruation was triggered by sexual intercourse, it is recommended only in sexual rest. The same applies to the discharge after other mechanical damage (gynecological examination, surgical intervention). It should be noted that injury to uterine mucosa is affected by the use of contraceptives, the period of menopause or lactation, when the body lacks estrogen. If the discharge is provoked by contraceptives, it is advisable to replace them with other contraceptives. При длительных коричневатых выделениях после месячных показаны кровоостанавливающие средства (аскорутин, глюконат кальция).

Б. Лечение выделений, вызванных болезнями

If the diagnosis that caused the discharge after menstruation is endometritis, it is treated with both non-drug (reflexotherapy) and drug methods: antibacterial drugs, douching, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory drugs. The doctor can prescribe high doses of hormonal contraceptives, physiotherapy procedures: laser therapy, electrophoresis, magnetic therapy.

In case of large malignant tumors (uterine myoma), the presence of endometriotic nodes, an operative method (laparoscopy) is rarely used. In rare cases, in the presence of discharge after menstruation, curettage is prescribed. Most often, treatment is carried out with the use of baths, suppositories, hormonal preparations, methods of immunocorrection.

Folk remedies

Folk remedies are aimed at eliminating discomfort during discharge after menstruation. They include herbal infusions for indoor and outdoor use. To prepare a therapeutic bath, use pine extract or prepare it yourself at the rate of 100 g of pine buds per 10 l of boiling water. To douche pour 3 tbsp. l Hypericum 2 liters of water and boil for 20 minutes. Do not forget to strain before use.

To stop the bloody, brownish discharge after menstruation, you can cook and drink a decoction of nettle. Pour 1 tbsp. l nettle with a glass of boiling water and let it brew. Treatment of "pink" postmenstrual discharge with folk methods is appropriate in the absence of any associated symptoms and pathologies. Otherwise, it is advisable to consult a doctor in time to prevent such undesirable consequences of discharge as the transition of inflammation to the chronic form and infertility.

Vaginal discharge and pregnancy

If the cause of discharge after menstruation was adenomyosis, endometritis, and the woman underwent surgery, then it is recommended to become pregnant in order to prevent relapses. During the carrying of the fruit may be observed liquid discharge of a light shade, the consistency and color resembling milk. Such discharge in pregnant women have no odor and does not cause irritation and discomfort in the genitals. With the increase in the period of selection become more intense. Also in the first months after conception, weak pink or light brown discharge may occur, indicating the implantation of the egg into the uterus.

If the discharge during pregnancy has become scarlet, bloody and more intense, this may mean detachment of the placenta, the ovum and threaten to miscarry. After delivery, there may also be discharge - pinky ichor. This is not dangerous, but if the discharge lasts longer than a month, it is better to consult a doctor anyway.

Is it normal if after menstruation pink color

Menstruation, or as they call the medical term, menstruation is a process familiar to each female. Most often accompanied by pain, nausea, odor, fatigue, and so on. Monthly waiting and at the same time afraid of what they show. According to statistics, many women's diseases can be recognized either during menstruation or in the middle of the cycle. One of the signs of the disease is a mid-cycle discharge. They can be pink, curd consistency, brown, white, light pink and bloody.

Pink discharge after menstruation often bothers and even scares women

Pink discharge. What is it?

Today, the talk will be about pink secretions that follow menstruation, in the middle of a cycle or at the end. As a rule, they do not smell. During menstruation, the body releases blood, which means that such secretions are clearly not relevant to the beginning of the cycle. Then what is it? The answers are simple and extremely clear for everyone:

  • transparent secret of the vagina plus a small amount of blood. Vaginal secretion increases with ovulation, and depending on the amount, the pink discharge can range from light pink to reddish,
  • a few days after the menstrual blood residues are released,
  • use of intrauterine device,
  • taking contraceptives
  • gynecological examination,
  • excess sexual intercourse.

Also, if such secretions are accompanied by pain or a pulling state in the lower abdomen, then these are indicators of some female diseases.

Type and color of selections

Pink discharge is a mixture of whiter with a small amount of capillary blood, depending on the volume of which the color saturation is formed.

Types of pink discharge:

  1. Pale pink
  2. Scarlet,
  3. With brown or bright red impurities,
  4. Cheesy
  5. Transparent.

Pregnancy Discharge

During this period, a woman needs to be extremely attentive to all changes in her body. As a rule, disposable light pink discharge indicates implantation of the ovum into the uterine wall. But if they do not stop and at the same time their number increases, it is necessary to visit a doctor.

Other factors can also cause daubs:

  1. Too much sensitivity of the genitals, as well as their active blood supply (discharge occurs after sex, gynecological examination, ultrasound examination with a vaginal sensor),
  2. False menstruation (pale pink daub appears in the days of menstrual bleeding and is accompanied by not strong pulling pains in the lower abdomen, giving to the lower back).

What to do?

If after menstruation appeared pink discharge - you need to listen to your body. If there are no other symptoms, such as itching, burning, pain, unpleasant smell, this is most likely normal and should not be worried.

If there is discomfort, even minimal, and daub lasts a very long time - you should immediately contact a gynecologist to confirm or exclude the presence of pathological processes.

What are vaginal discharge?

What many used to call “pink secretions” is a rather inaccurate definition. After all, what stands out from the vagina after the end of menstruation often has different shades. It may be pale pink discharge or they will have a more saturated, red color.

Leaks consist of a transparent secret of a vagina and an insignificant impurity of blood. During ovulation, mucus production increases. At this point, you can observe a pinkish discharge. The ratio of blood and secretions causes the color of mucus.

Vaginal discharge is different: transparent or turbid, white, yellowish, bloody, brown, cheesy or frothy.

When the fair sex, regardless of her color, suddenly appeared for no apparent reason, it is necessary to consult a gynecologist. If it has a greenish tint, this indicates the presence of a pathology in the organs of the urogenital system.

Causes of mucus secretion

The reasons why after the cycle appear pink discharge in the medical directory describes a lot. The phenomenon may be of a normal physiological nature or may indicate any pathology. Among the main reasons are the following:

  • Ovulation discharge some women notice about a week after menstruation. The phenomenon is caused by an individual reaction to changes in hormonal levels. Leaks occur within 1 to 2 days. During this period, the woman most often experiences discomfort, sometimes pulling pain in the ovaries.
  • The intrauterine device often leads to a pink daub in the middle of the cycle. In this case, the woman noted an increase in the discharge of bleeding at the time of menstruation. This reaction of the body to the intrauterine system is individual. It is not due to the quality of the installation of the spiral.
  • Taking pills for unwanted pregnancy is accompanied by pink discharge after menstruation quite often. This mainly occurs during the first three cycles. The liquid is separated in a small volume, has no unpleasant smell.
  • Ectopic pregnancy is sometimes accompanied by the symptoms at the end of critical days. Usually such signs are observed within 1 to 2 weeks. Dribbling is supported by severe lower abdominal pain, in the lumbar region. Symptoms are aggravated by general weakness, vomiting, darkening of the eyes, fainting.
  • Polycystic ovarian disease caused by a hormonal disorder.
  • Sexual intercourse is sometimes able to provoke bloody pink discharge. The reasons are the difference in the size of the vagina and the penis, or excessive intensity of penetration. The wrong choice of posture sometimes leads to the appearance of microcracks on the mucous membrane, resulting in mechanical damage to the blood vessels.
  • Implant bleeding. If the secretions have different shades of red, from pink to scarlet, and are accompanied by pulling pains in the lower abdomen that do not have an unpleasant smell, then it is likely that conception occurred. It is worth noting that the discharge of mucus on the twentieth day of the cycle is not a cause for concern.
  • The unpleasant smell of mucus or fluid from the vagina is always a sign of the pathological process in the urogenital system, no matter what color or texture it leaves.
  • Chronic endometritis occurs after intervention in the reproductive organs (hysteroscopy, abortion, installation of the helix, hysterosalpinography). The inflammatory process is accompanied by the separation of pink mucus from the vagina after menstruation.
  • Endocervicitis is most often triggered by chlamydia or gonococcus. The disease is characterized by inflammation in the cervical canal. Pink leaks in this case appear on completion of sexual intercourse.
  • Pathological formations in the genitals (cysts, fibroids, polyps) cause leakage of mucus after critical days.

It is necessary to establish as soon as possible the causes of pink discharge after menstruation. Most diseases are quickly and easily eliminated with timely diagnosis and competent therapy. Launched pathologies often impede conception, provoking sterility.

Gestation period

If during the delay of menstruation, instead of the usual blood masses appear pink discharge, it is advisable to conduct a pregnancy test. Fertilization may have occurred. In this case, it is important to establish the cause of these leaks. This may be the release of a small fraction of blood diluted with vaginal mucus, formed as a result of attachment to the wall of the uterus of the ovum. This phenomenon does not pose a danger to the health of the woman and does not affect the course of pregnancy.

In another case, a pink vaginal discharge signals a pathology. Therefore, to delay the appeal to the doctor can not. An experienced gynecologist will quickly determine the cause of the discharge of the fluid, take the necessary measures to prevent unpleasant consequences and keep the woman healthy.

It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that a small amount of pinkish discharge may appear after the examination, palpation of the pregnant patient. This condition is considered normal. It does not require medical treatment.

If after the gynecological examination of the expectant mother, the discharge does not disappear on the second day, or it is difficult to call them “scanty”, you should contact the antenatal clinic. This phenomenon often indicates an increased risk of abortion.

Traditional therapy

First of all, the doctor must determine the reason why light pink mucus is emitted from a woman's vagina. Diagnosis is the examination, the study of history, the appointment of a number of tests, studies. In some cases, consultation with an endocrinologist will be required, as some pathologies are caused by a malfunction of the thyroid gland.

After the diagnosis, treatment is prescribed to eliminate the causes of the pink discharge from the woman. Curing pathology, daub will pass by itself.

Consider some ways to eliminate unpleasant symptoms:

  • When the intrauterine device became the cause of pink discharge after menstruation, it is removed and another type of contraception is selected.
  • If the leakage is caused by taking birth control pills, they should be stopped. The doctor will select other drugs and other means of protection from unwanted pregnancy. In some cases, discharge occurs only in the first months of taking the drug, until the body gets used to them. A woman is recommended to drink hemostatic drugs (calcium gluconate, Ascorutin) along with the pill.
  • In endometriosis, it is advisable to take hormonal drugs (Gestrinon, Danazol, Duphaston, Mifepristone), anti-inflammatory drugs (Celebrex, Ibuprofen, Nurofen) and antimicrobial agents (Brufen, Indomethacin, Flugalin). The positive effect has douching. The effectiveness of physiotherapy procedures (laser, electrophoresis, magnetic therapy). At inexpediency of conservative methods of treatment, surgical intervention is carried out.
  • Laparoscopy - surgery to remove pathological tumors from the genitals of a woman. It is used for myoma, oncological tumors, cysts. If appropriate, conservative treatment surgical intervention is replaced by hormonal drugs and means that strengthen the immune system (folic acid, vitamins C, E, group B).
  • When pink discharge after menstruation in a woman occurs due to erosion, it must be cauterized. This method prevents the transformation of pathology into a cancer.
  • Ectopic pregnancy is eliminated by medical and surgical methods. In the first case, hormonal agents are used in high doses, stopping the development of the embryo, causing miscarriage (Mototreka, Mifepristone). The doctor chooses the method of surgery depending on the duration of the pregnancy and other individual characteristics of the patient.

In modern medicine, there are enough ways to cope with any pathology provoking discharge after menstruation. It is only important to seek help in a timely manner.

What should be normal vaginal discharge?

Each cycle stage has its own type of secretion:

  1. Monthly - blood. 3-5 days go by. In the first 1-2 days, the discharge is abundant, bright red in color, and may contain clots. In recent days, they are rare, have a smearing character, have a darker color. This is due to the fact that at the end of menstruation the blood is released more slowly, and its clotting increases.
  2. Ovulation: viscous, liquid, transparent, abundant. The consistency is similar to egg white. They talk about the release of the egg, ready for fertilization.
  3. In the second half of the cycle and before menstruation: thick, creamy, white (in the absence of fertilization).
  4. At conception (on the 7th day after ovulation): at the moment of insertion of a fertilized egg, red inclusions in mucus are possible.
  5. After sex: clear, white or yellowish.
  6. During pregnancy: light or white liquid consistency.

In the normal cycle, the discharge after menstruation should not be. If they do not stop after menstruation has ended, this is not always a deviation. The body is released from blood residues for 2-4 days. While the selection is rare and brownish. This color is obtained due to the oxidation of rejected clots. There are several reasons why the duration of menstruation increases:

  • easy colds,
  • emotional overload, stressful situations,
  • excessive exercise
  • sex at the end of menstruation,
  • stay in the heat
  • taking drugs that affect blood clotting,
  • misuse of contraceptives.

Causes of brown secretions

Brown discharge a few days after menstruation are evidence of pathological processes. The most dangerous of them are malignant tumors in the uterus, its neck or vagina. The intensity of blood discharge varies for each type of pathology:

  • hormonal disorders: abundant, prolonged, can cause anemia,
  • oncology: long-term, spotting,
  • benign lesions: abundant or smearing, depend on the disease and the individual characteristics of the organism.

Dark strokes after menstruation will confirm improper attachment of the ovum. This means the development of ectopic pregnancy. In this case, urgent medical attention is required.

There are other pathologies and diseases:

  • Erosion - cervical damage. Brown strokes.
  • Uterine fibroids - benign neoplasms in one of the layers. Long time is not shown. Monthly while abundant, accompanied by pain and ends with long brown strokes.
  • Polyp - growth on the mucous membrane. Its appearance provokes a change in the balance of hormones.
  • Endometritis is an infectious disease of the uterus, accompanied by inflammation. Occurs mainly after difficult childbirth and abortion. Characteristic discharge of a light brown shade with an unpleasant odor.
  • Inflammation of the endometrium. In addition to the appearance of brown mucus, the stomach and lumbar region are sore.
  • Endometriosis - cell proliferation of the surface of the uterus. Dangerous lack of pain and additional symptoms. Dark brown discharge begins one week after menstruation, red blotches are present.
  • Hyperplasia is a pathological proliferation of uterine cells that can provoke cancer. The discharge is dark.

Infections and venereal diseases are manifested by coagulated blood. Chronic metroendometritis is accompanied by inflammation of the mucous membrane. It is characterized by the appearance of smears on linen on any days of the cycle. If they smell bad, this indicates exposure to bacteria and other microorganisms. Due to their influence, the epithelium changes its structure, becomes more loose, and the vessels become fragile, which causes weak bleeding. Possible diseases:

  • purulent metroendometrit - microbes in the uterus,
  • vulvovaginitis - microorganisms in the vagina,
  • endocervicitis - infection in the cervical canal.

What do pink or red secretions say that continue after menstruation?

Causes of pink and red discharge:

  • The maturation of the egg. On the 11-14 day of the cycle, it leaves the follicle, which bursts. A droplet of blood secreted by the rupture of a follicle enters the mucus. In this case, sometimes pulls the lower abdomen.
  • Intrauterine device. A few days in the discharge there are light and pink blotches.
  • Birth control pills. At first, due to changes in the hormonal balance, smears of different shades are observed.
  • The first year after birth - the recovery cycle.
  • Active sex life. Minor damage to the surface of the vagina (s) due to a rough act.
  • Examination of the doctor - microdamages of blood vessels due to extraneous intervention.

Pink discharge a week after menstruation can confirm pregnancy. A drop of blood is released at the time of the attachment of the egg to the uterus Pathologies characterized by pink discharge:

  • endometritis or endocervicitis,
  • cervical erosion,
  • polycystic ovaries,
  • infection in the vagina and cervix,
  • fibroids, tumors,
  • thyroid problems.

Should I consult a doctor and when to do it?

It is necessary to visit a doctor if viscosity, structure, abundance and duration of discharge have changed during menstruation. Alarming signs:

  • Superstitious discharge of brown color lasts more than 3 days after the end of menstruation. This may be a symptom of endometriosis, a polyp, hyperplasia.
  • A strong smell always confirms the presence of infection.
  • When using birth control pills after each menstruation, there is a discharge of more than 3 cycles. Requires replacement of the drug.
  • Pain in the abdomen and lower back. Hormonal balance failure or infection may occur.

If you find similar symptoms in yourself, you should consult a gynecologist. The presence of blotches of any hue in the discharge also requires medical advice, timely diagnosis and treatment. If you start the process, pathologies can develop into chronic diseases, lead to oncology and other unpleasant consequences.

Diagnostic methods

The gynecologist examines and interviews the patient. A woman should tell what discharge she has observed, their color, the presence of smell, at what stage of the cycle and with what frequency they occur, so that the specialist can find out what it means.

On examination, the gynecologist uses a mirror to visually determine changes in the mucous membrane. It can also detect erosion or inflammation. It is mandatory to take a smear to determine the microflora and the detection of infection, bacteria and other pathogenic microorganisms.

If necessary, use other diagnostic methods. Ultrasound scan shows any abnormalities in the development of the uterus and other organs: endometritis, polycystic disease, myoma, etc. General blood and urine tests help detect inflammation, check the balance of hormones.

Other studies are being conducted:

  • colposcopy - examination of the mucous by a special apparatus, which, with the help of magnification, allows to examine its structure and changes,
  • biopsy - a study of cells taken from a suspicious site
  • Histology - analysis of endometrial tissue after curettage.

Treatment and Prevention

Tactics of treatment depends on the diagnosis. If the discharge continues for some time after menstruation, or the usual cycle is disturbed, hormone therapy is carried out. If the changes are caused by contraceptive drugs, the doctor replaces them.

For the treatment of diseases prescribe antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine medicines, means to suppress the development of fungi, to increase immunity. To restore microflora, it is sometimes enough to change the diet, enter yoghurts in the daily menu.

For the period of treatment you need to stop smoking and reduce the consumption of alcoholic beverages. In therapy often include douching, washing with antiseptic drugs. To get rid of benign and malignant neoplasms, curettage or surgical intervention is required.

To protect yourself from all diseases is impossible, but to reduce the likelihood of their occurrence is necessary. It is enough to comply with a number of preventive measures:

  • Daily rinsing. At the same time, it is necessary to make movements from front to back so that microbes from the anus do not fall into the vagina.
  • Use condoms for sex with a random partner.
  • Have a permanent sexual partner. This significantly reduces the risk of infection and the acquisition of sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Systematically visit a gynecologist for a routine inspection. A woman who has a regular sex life is shown a visit to the doctor every six months (at least once a year).
  • Use hormonal contraceptives as prescribed and under the supervision of a gynecologist.
  • Consult a specialist when planning a pregnancy.
  • Abandon abortions and surgery if possible.
