What Causes Brown Discharge During Pregnancy?
2. Ectopic Pregnancy
Ectopic pregnancy happens when the implantation occurs outside your uterus, most commonly in the fallopian tube. An ectopic pregnancy can also lead to bleeding during pregnancy. The blood is usually brown, like the color of dried blood.
Ectopic pregnancy is a potentially life-threatening condition. The fallopian tube may burst as the pregnancy progresses, resulting in severe internal bleeding. Reach out to the nearest emergency department if you experience bleeding along with symptoms, such as:
- Shoulder pain
- Extreme dizziness
- Abdominal or pelvic pain, especially on one side
