Leucorrhoea Is Red And Itchy At 5 Months Of Pregnancy?
hello, I want to ask, I’m 5 months pregnant how often it comes out like vaginal discharge but it’s red and it feels very itchy
Hello, thanks for the question.
Leucorrhoea is the discharge of fluid or mucus from the vagina, which is normally normal for every woman and functions as a vaginal lubricant and protects the vagina from infection and irritation. This vaginal discharge normally occurs before menstruation, during ovulation, breastfeeding, sexually aroused, using hormonal contraception, when stressed, and others. Normal vaginal discharge is clear, transparent, and does not smell. If there is excessive vaginal discharge, a pungent odor such as fishy or rotten, thick, foamy, or lumpy like cheese, gray, green or yellowish, thick liquid with blood, large amount and sticky, and cause vaginal itching, heat and painful especially during sexual intercourse or when urinating can indicate a disturbance in the reproductive organs, usually caused by infection, bacteria, fungi, parasites, or viruses. Some diseases that cause abnormal vaginal discharge include, pelvic inflammatory disease, vaginal candidiasis, bacteriotic vaginalis, trichomoniasis, and so forth. If complaints occur mainly in pregnancy, it is best to consult a gynecologist because it is feared that it can cause interference with the pregnancy, in the form of premature rupture of membranes, untimely delivery, and impaired fetal development. The doctor will carry out additional examinations and examinations, in the form of vaginal swabs, blood and urine tests, ultrasound, etc. if needed. Handling will be adjusted to the underlying conditions. If vaginal discharge occurs a number of things you can do include:
Change the underwear as often as possible to keep the vagina dry and clean
Choose underwear made from cotton, which absorbs sweat
Clean and dry the vagina after each chapter or urination
Avoid using perfuming soaps, gels, or other antiseptic ingredients in the vagina
Wash the female area with warm water
Avoid sex until the disease is declared cured.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
