Allocations during pregnancy
Pregnant women are characterized by increased anxiety and a tendency to exaggerate. As they say, in fear, eyes are great, and during an interesting situation especially!
Therefore, most of the future mothers, having found out the previously unremarkable discharge during pregnancy, are frightened and are looking for a way to get rid of them.
However, their fears are often in vain. Even excessively abundant discharge during pregnancy does not always endanger the health of the future baby and his mother.
Nevertheless, vigilance does not hurt – it is necessary to monitor whether the consistency changes, and most importantly, the color of discharge during pregnancy. If yes, then it is necessary to address the gynecologist without delay.
But let’s first figure out which excretions during pregnancy should be scary, and which are not.
Transparent discharge during pregnancy is the norm. They are most plentiful at the beginning of pregnancy and at the end of it – in the last weeks of the third trimester. Their appearance is associated with a change in the hormonal background.
First, this is due to increased production of progesterone, and then an excess of estrogen.
You can not worry and do not seek medical help if the mucous discharge during pregnancy does not cause discomfort, does not have an unpleasant odor and looks homogeneous. To cause alarm should only their increased wateriness.
In particular, if such a change occurred in the second-third trimester. In this situation, watery discharge during pregnancy can signal the leakage of amniotic fluid, which may in turn lead to the threat of premature birth.
White color of excretions during pregnancy, too, should not frighten a woman. Most often, this shade is caused by the interaction of exudate with air.
But, if the consistency of excretions is not uniform and flakes are clearly visible in them, then this can be a disturbing call. Especially if there is an itching or burning sensation after urinating.
In this case, you need to visit a doctor and do a smear test, since the cause of such secretions can be candidiasis.
The appearance of pronounced yellow discharge during pregnancy should alert any future mother. Unfortunately, most often such an exudate reports the presence of an infection in the body, which is unsafe for fetal development. The most common infectious disease is caused by staphylococci or E. coli.
But sometimes, foamy yellow discharge during pregnancy occurs due to gonococcus – the causative agent of gonorrhea.
