Question: Pregnant and have green diarrhea

 tjzandkb - Wed Jul 21, 2010 3:29 pm

I am 21. I am 28 weeks pregnant with my second child. I have had really green diarrhea for over a week. What do I need to do? What is it?

User avatar Hello,
The diarrhea is not likely related to pregnancy but could be a sign of infection, either viral, parasite or bacterial so if it continues you should see your doctor who may need to do a stool examination. Many of these things resolve on their own in a few days so it's fine to wait it out. Just be sure you get enough fluids that you do not become dehydrated.

Best wishes.
