I have discharge. I have a lot of discharge in fact and have for months. It is clear/white and dries in clumps in my pubic hair (which is trimmed neatly, and closely), does not appear to smell. On occasion, especially recently, it has been sticking my public hair to my undies, and actually hurts .
I am pregnant, clearly as this is under pregnancy topic! And i have also changed my name, clearly as this is a little embarrassing to write about.
I know that some discharge is normal in pregnancy, but is excessive amounts normal?
Yep, me too!! Def mention to the mw. Are you not sore or itchy? Does it smell??
Fwiw, I can feel when my discharge 'gushes' out, and it goes towards the front of my pants. I sometimes wear a panty liner for when I am out, as I don't want to leave wet patches where I sit! But I do try to wear nothing at night to help air circulate.
I had really heavy discharge when i was pregnant with dd4, i ended up with ecezma (sp) and nappy rash I tried to talk to my consultant about it as i also had varicose veins of the vuvlva but he wasn't interested but lucky for me my femal gp was shocked and sympathetic about it, she gave me a special aqueaous cream to wash with, an anti fungal cream, and i wore the softest panty liners i could find. As soon as dd4 was born it stopped.
stretch no not smelly, bit itchy but mainly as its a bit 'damp'. I like to air it too . Not smelly, thankfully!
I guess i am slightly as i have had sugar in my urine, and think this can sometimes indicate a urine infection? Midwife was very 'wait and see' about the sugar, not overly concerned. Also due to being sick a lot, urine release has decreased significantly and i also heard this can increase risk of urine infection?
I only spoke to midwife advice line this morning about a completely different thing, she pretty much called me paranoid, in a nice friendly midwifey way. I am seeing GP tomorrow but i am a bit about mentioning it to him.
<sigh> oh its so embarrassing some of this pregnancy malarky isn't it?
2much - are you sure it isn't thrush? Sounds a bit like it (speaking from painful and bitter experience). I had it throughout my first pregnancy and, joy of joys, have just got it again (am 19 weeks). Speak to the MW (they can usually detect it from your wee) and get some Canestan.
