Your body changes so rapidly during pregnancy that it's hard to know whether a new ache or symptom is "normal," or if you should call your healthcare provider or even head to the emergency room. If you're unsure but worried something might be wrong, trust your instincts and get help. That really depends — some symptoms may be less urgent than others because of your health history and how far along you are in your pregnancy. Talk to your provider ahead of time at one of your regular prenatal visits so you know what to look for.
Pink Discharge During Pregnancy
Vaginal discharge - NHS
Lochia is the vaginal discharge you have after a vaginal delivery. It has a stale, musty odor like menstrual discharge. Lochia for the first 3 days after delivery is dark red in color. A few small blood clots, no larger than a plum, are normal. For the fourth through tenth day after delivery, the lochia will be more watery and pinkish to brownish in color. From about the seventh to tenth day through the fourteenth day after delivery, the lochia is creamy or yellowish in color. You might notice increased lochia when you get up in the morning, when you are physically active, or while breastfeeding.

Pink discharge in your pants will probably set your alarm bells ringing, especially if you've never seen it before. And, with the NHS describing a white-ish tone as 'normal', it could be a sign of something or, rather unhelpfully, not. So, instead of scrolling down internet scare stories, we spoke to an expert about what's going on down there. While you may be a bit freaked by the sight of pink discharge, there are plenty of reasons as to why it might be happening — and they aren't all something to worry about. However, if you are ever worried about something happening down there, do book in with your GP to discuss your symptoms.
