Ask Us Anything: How Do I Know If My Water Is Leaking?

"How do I know if my water is leaking?"

Dr. Jaime Rehmann Obst Responds:

Women don't always perceive the dramatic gush of fluid seen on TV when their water breaks. Often, it is much more subtle.

What you will usually notice is feeling consistently wet and having to change your undergarments repeatedly.

The fluid is usually clear and odorless but may be tinted green, yellow, or pink.

The important thing to do is call your obstetrician immediately if you think you may be leaking and they can best decide what to do from there.
