Vaginal Discharge (Leukorrhea) during pregnancy

A certain amount of pale yellow, thin vaginal discharge is normal for pregnancy, resulting from the increased activity of the cervical glands. Usually bathing with the liberal use of a soft washcloth is sufficient to take care of the problem. If not, douching may be practiced with your doctor’s consent. If the discharge becomes very profuse and thick and is associated with vaginal itching, consult your doctor promptly. The problem is not serious, and probably he can control it readily. The simplest remedy is the insertion of Mycostatin vaginal tablets once or twice a day for several days. If the itching persists, cultures and other diagnostic tests must be employed to determine the exact cause, so that the appropriate treatment may be given.
