Itching And Vaginal Discharge During Second Trimester Pregnancy?
Thank you for the question.
Excessive vaginal discharge that feels itchy at 22 weeks pregnant women is usually reasonable due to hormonal influences that make the acidity level and balance of normal flora in the vagina change. However, aside from due to reasonable conditions, vaginal discharge as you experience may also refer to an illness, such as a fungal infection, bacterial or other microorganism infection, stress, fatigue, pelvic inflammation, allergies or irritation to substances that come in contact with the vagina, malignancies, etc.
Handling of vaginal discharge as you experience it does not have to always be done with ointment. The good, so that complaints improve, you try to do first:
Rest more Take a shower diligently, and clean your genitals using good quality water. Do not carelessly use soap, fragrance, or any chemicals around the vagina. After defecating and after sexual intercourse, clean your genitals from front to back (vagina to anus ), not vice versa Do not scratch your pubic, even if itchy Change your underwear, at least 2 times a day Choose the type of underwear that is loose, clean, soft material, and absorbs sweat No stress and excessive fatigue Expand drinking and live a healthy lifestyle If in 1 week your complaint does not also improve, we recommend that you do not carelessly use ointments or any medication. First, check yourself to the doctor or obstetrician so that your condition is handled well.
I hope this helps.
