Pinkish Vaginal Discharge. Does It Appear Due to Pregnancy, Infection or Lifestyle?

Vaginal flow is a normal process in the body of a woman. However, here the things greatly depend on its color and amount. When the discharge is white, there’s nothing to worry about, when there’s pinkish vaginal discharge, it can be a reason for concern.

Why Is It Pinkish?

Pinkish vaginal discharge takes its color from blood. Of course, it doesn’t mean it contains lots of blood, only a few drops. In most cases its occurrence is quite a normal thing. For many women this is a sign of ovulation or period. The latter case is more frequent, as such discharges serve as indicators that the woman will begin her period in a day. When the menstruation becomes heavier, the color changes to red.

Are Pinkish Vaginal Discharges Risky?

They are not at all risky, but when they occur during pregnancy, a woman should consult her gynecologist. In many cases the medications and creams become the reasons of discharges during pregnancy, and the condition should be treated with appropriate antibiotics or alternative supplements.

When, Why and How Do They Occur?

It is quite common for a woman to have some pinkish vaginal discharge in between periods. But cases of discharges are not the same and a woman should take into account the color and amount.

  • The first menstrual period after pregnancy is also accompanied by very light pinkish bleeding and a woman sees only light spotting.
  • Women, who have just given birth, have pinkish discharges as well. Slight spotting is very similar to period in the first days after giving birth. The discharge may be seen within a couple of days or for more than one week (the duration depends on the woman).
  • If a woman has pinkish vaginal discharge before her period and she has been sexually active during the last week, she could be conceived. It is an implantation bleeding, which is experienced by 20%-30% of all women.
  • Hormonal changes in the body of a woman also lead to discharges. Physical and emotional stress, changes in body weight and certain medicines (especially contraceptives) lead to pinkish discharges.
  • Vaginal discharges of pink color are frequent signs of diseases and infections of the body organs (ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes, vagina).

Pinkish vaginal discharges are safe, when they are not heavy and persistent. If a woman continues experiencing heavy bleeding, accompanied by pain, she should seek for medical attention.
