Leucorrhoea And Yellow Mucus During Pregnancy?
, I want to ask. I am 22 weeks pregnant suddenly accompanied by yellow mucus, odorless and sometimes odorless. What happened ??
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Leucorrhoea can be normal or is a disease. Normal vaginal discharge is caused by female hormonal influences, characterized by clear or slightly white color, thin or thick like egg whites, no lumps, no smell, no itching, no pain in the vagina.
If the characteristics of vaginal discharge are not like the above, it is possible that vaginal discharge is not normal, and can be caused by:
This vaginal discharge can occur in pregnant and non-pregnant women, and some risk factors that increase the risk of occurrence are lack of hygiene, conditions of decreased immunity, have a history of diabetes.
In pregnant women, abnormal vaginal discharge must be treated immediately, because it is feared that it can rise to the uterus and cause infection in the fetus.
For this reason, in order to ascertain the cause of your vaginal discharge and determine the appropriate treatment, you should check with your obstetrician so that you can do a physical examination or supporting examination needed to establish the diagnosis. After that, of course, if there is an underlying disease, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment.
As for what you should do is:
Maintain hygiene of the genital area
Dry the genital area after urinating
Avoid wearing pants that are too tight
Keep your immune system high by consuming nutritious foods that are high in vitamins and minerals and at least 2 liters of water a day
If there is diabetes, do control blood sugar regularly
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
