Hello Roma, Thank you for the question.
When a woman is pregnant, vaginal mucus production does increase due to hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy (increased estrogen hormone). In addition, during pregnancy, blood flow to the vagina increases which can also cause this vaginal discharge. As long as this vaginal discharge is clear or slightly white, odorless, and does not cause itching or burning, this discharge is classified as normal. However, you need to be aware of abnormal vaginal discharge that changes color (milky white, yellowish, greenish, or mixed with blood), has a strong odor, and is accompanied by symptoms of itching or swelling of the limbs because this is a sign of an infection in the vagina (such as a yeast infection. , bacterial vaginosis, sexually transmitted infections).
Please check with your gynecologist immediately. Your doctor will examine you to find the cause and determine the right treatment for you. Meanwhile, please do the following suggestions:
avoid having sex with your husband until you recover. Avoid wearing tight pants, preferably use underwear that absorbs sweat easily, avoid using feminine cleansers, don't scratch the itchy part. Please read the following article: Leucorrhoea during pregnancy
