Itching On The Outside Genitals While 11 Weeks Pregnant?
At night, I am a pregnant woman, I am 11 weeks pregnant, want to ask, I have intense itching in the urethra, to the point that it disrupts my sleep time. Is that normal because of the effects of pregnancy? Or is it actually a bacterium? Oh yes, I’m 22 years old, I’m currently taking an obstetric booster drug that is 100 mg utrogestant. That’s all thanks
Good evening, thanks for the question
The possibility of complaints referred to above is itching around the outside genitals, considering that the urethra is a structure of the channel that is inside the pelvic cavity and the nerves do not allow for the sensation of itching.
Itching on the outside of the genitals during pregnancy can be related to changes in a woman's body during pregnancy which is classified as normal. Pregnant women generally will produce more vaginal fluid as a result of hormonal changes, where the condition will have an impact on the risky area outside the genitals of pregnant women experiencing irritation. The irritation causes complaints of pain, itching, or redness on the outside genitals.
But that needs attention is if the complaint is accompanied by symptoms such as vaginal discharge that is thick, smelly, or yellow or greenish, it is necessary to suspect an infection so that it can also cause complaints of itching of the genitals. If so, further consultation with a doctor is recommended to obtain adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
