do you have an on call mw number or out of hours gp service? I'd call that. Could be nothing, or maybe BV?

I didn't think a green discharge was normal? Sorry I may be wrong but.....

Its not green green - just a greenish tint - i think that is normal - well I have been having for weeks now and I got it around certain times of the month when not pregnant - it doesn't smell or anything.

I have mentioned it my Dr and he's not concerend have been tested for sti's and others soooo...

Anyway I am more concerned that orangey yellow is not normal for me

hi sahara i have had yellow/ orange discharge from about week 8 to week 4 months now. Went to gp and had everything tested, its normal....hmm or so she said!

Its due to your cervix being slightly aggitated which causes a very very smalll amount of bleeding, mixed with normal discharge it starts to look orange, hope this helps.

Sahara - I googled orange discharge before for someone else asking the same question. Read that it was normal in pregnancy.

Oh and I had the green tinged cm with my first pregnancy from about 3 weeks until mc at 5 weeks and then went back to normal. Haven't got it this time though, guess each pregnancy is different.

Thanks Issy,

Its seems to have returned to its normal greenish tinge now.

Tried to call the midwife today - but alas no answer or call back.

I feel better now it has gone - just worried there was an infection or something
