I am currently 10W pregnant. During pregnancy, I always had vaginal discharge. But it’s been almost 24 hours the discharge has suddenly disappeared and I don’t experience any more discharge. Is that natural?
Congratulations on your pregnancy. When pregnant there are hormonal changes in the body that can cause more vaginal discharge. However, vaginal discharge during pregnancy should also be watched out as a sign of infection or other conditions. Leucorrhoea to watch out for is abnormal vaginal discharge, for example, colored discharge (green, yellow, mixed with blood), smelly, accompanied by itching and pain, or if the amount is large to disturb.
Actually, if you don't have vaginal discharge, this is normal and not to worry about. Meanwhile, pregnant women who experience vaginal discharge must see again whether the vaginal discharge is normal or not. If the vaginal discharge is not normal, it is necessary to get further treatment by a doctor.
Therefore you don't need to worry about vaginal discharge. We recommend that you carry out pregnancy control regularly once a month or according to your obstetrician's recommendation so that the condition of the pregnancy and the fetus continues to be well monitored.
In addition, try to maintain vaginal cleanliness in order to prevent vaginal discharge as follows:
Use comfortable and not tight underwear Change underwear when wet Wash the vagina with clean water, without soap, without vaginal cleansing from front to back Always clean the vagina and penis before and after sex Always wash hands before touching the vagina Get enough rest and avoid it stress The following articles are related to the topic of your question:
