Nausea And White Discharge From The Genitals. Is It A Sign Of Pregnancy?
I am often nauseous for 2 weeks every night and sometimes after 1 day of having sex I always have white, odorless liquid vaginal discharge .. is that normal? Or a sign of pregnancy?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Nausea and white discharge from the genitals can result from the same or different causes. One of the conditions that can trigger these two complaints is hormonal changes during early pregnancy. If this is true for you, then generally these complaints will appear along with other signs of pregnancy, such as absent menstruation, breast pain and tension, weakness, dizziness, mood swings, frequent urination, constipation, and so on. . Furthermore, the results of pregnancy checks, such as a test pack or ultrasound will show that you are pregnant.
In addition to the consequences of pregnancy, your complaints can also arise due to other factors, for example:
Causes of nausea: dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), migraines, lack of sleep, viral or bacterial infection, head injury, stress
Causes of vaginal discharge from the genitals: hormonal changes before menstruation, stress, entry of foreign objects into the genitals, irritation, infection, side effects of contraception, and so on
In order to distinguish each of the possible causes above, as a first step, you can first try doing a testpack. Indeed, according to various literatures, the best time to do a testpack is after experiencing a menstrual delay for at least 1 week. This is so that pregnancy hormones can be more concentrated so that they can be more easily detected on examination. However, nowadays, there are also many testpack devices that have very high sensitivity in detecting pregnancy (even exceeding 99%) so that they can find out pregnancy faster. Or, you can also check your condition directly to the doctor so that further tests can be done. It could be, if the doctor suspects pregnancy, you will be directed to undergo a blood test to detect the possibility of getting pregnant sooner.
In the meantime, so that the complaints subside, here are the steps you should take:
Eat regularly, with small portions but often
Cut down on foods that often trigger your nausea, usually foods that are too spicy or coconut milk
Sleep is more disciplined, don't stay up late
Compress the nauseous stomach with warm water while getting plenty of rest
Avoid wearing clothes that are too tight on the stomach and chest
Always keep your intimate organs clean
Do not wear underwear and pants that are too tight and made from hot
Stay away from casual sex
