So, I'm a lover of GT's Kombucha-- I only drink storebought kombucha. I drank 2-3 bottles a week for a while... then didn't drink it lots while TTC or in early PG... Maybe a bottle a week, on average. But then I had at least 1-2 bottles last week and 1 yesterday afternoon (I'm 8 weeks today). I had a noticeable bit of brown spotting in the evening yesterday (went away quickly), and I had a couple of short, similar incidents last week, though I can't, for the life of me, remember if they coincided with kombucha-drinking days. My MW thinks the spotting is cervical irritation or some-such (though it hasn't coincided with sex or direct cervical contact), not uterine blood, so she's not particularly worried.
The spotting may have nothing at all to do with kombucha, but the connection just occurred to me as I started to open another bottle. I'm not worried about the extremely minimal alcohol content or "detox" effects, but I just read that it has anticoagulant effects. If true, could that be a cause of my (likely inconsequential, but anxiety-provoking) spotting? Has anyone had this experience, or is anyone a kombucha expert, etc., and have any thoughts about a possible connection (or reason to believe there is no connection)?
Just noodling... Thanks!
