What it Means When You Have Watery Discharge After Your Period And When To See a Doctor.

After careful research, I discovered that during your period, your uterine lining discharges a combination of blood and tissues so once your period ends it is still possible to have discharge from the vagina.

However, it is also possible to have discharge that is not normal, especially if you notice a yellow or green color. That is why it is important to pay close attention to discharge because it tells a lot about your vaginal health. It can also help you determine when to see a doctor.

One cause of vaginal discharge after the period cycle is hormonal changes. In some cases, it can also indicate a health condition that may need to be addressed by your doctor. However, other reasons for vaginal discharge include may include removal of old blood from your uterine lining, ovulation, birth control pills, bacterial vaginosis, yeast infection, and sexually transmitted diseases.

In a previous article, I made mention having a vaginal odor. Please once again, note that it is also considered normal, you only have to maintain a good hygiene practice like (wearing breathable underwear, taking daily showers, and avoiding scented products) to prevent infections that could result in an awful smell.

Please note that an odor that is extremely strong or fishy smell could indicate an infection, especially if you experience colored discharge, pain, as well as itchiness. This calls for immediate action. So when can you see a doctor? Because it is advisable to see a doctor when you start experiencing unusual changes in your vaginal health.


Brown discharge after your period is not usually a cause for concern, but you may want to see your doctor if you have any other symptoms, such as pain and itchiness. Also, call your doctor if you continuously experience brown spotting. This is one possible sign of cervical or uterine cancers, which should be ruled out.

Finally, having a watery discharge right after your period is completely normal. It is most likely to consist of old blood shedding from the uterus.

So after carefully reading through it, what do you think about this? Please do well to drop your answers and share your opinion in the comment section below let's discuss.

Hope this article was helpful.

Thank you.
