There are several possibilities related to discharge from the mother's birth canal, namely:
1. Leucorrhoea, where pregnant women in the third trimester tend to experience more vaginal discharge than usual. In addition, excessive vaginal discharge can also occur when mothers experience sexual stimulation or due to an infection of the birth canal.
2. Amniotic fluid.
3. Urine. Pregnant women in the third trimester often experience unconscious urination. This condition occurs due to the bottom of the fetus pressing the mother's bladder so that it stimulates urination. This can cause urine to leak easily.
Any discharge or blood spots from the birth canal is a sign that the mother must immediately consult a doctor or midwife nearest to be examined. The doctor will distinguish whether the fluid is vaginal discharge, urine or amniotic fluid, ie with a litmus test. The doctor will place litmus paper on the liquid that you suspect is coming out of the birth canal. If there is a red color change of litmus paper to blue, it is true that it is amniotic fluid. Next the doctor will conduct an examination to assess the condition of the fetus and mother. The doctor will provide treatment according to the conditions.
If the fluid is vaginal discharge caused by an infection then the doctor will give anti-bacterial or antifungal drugs, according to the germs that cause it. If the fluid is amniotic fluid and the fetus is still in good condition, the mother must have a total rest and undergo an ultrasound examination to see the amount of amniotic fluid whether it is still adequate or not. If the doctor finds an emergency in the fetus, then delivery should be done immediately.
Thus hopefully useful.
