Pregnant Women Are Prescribed Floragyn Capsules
Doctor, I am 4 months pregnant. This month I experienced vaginal discharge almost every day. Sometimes itchy, sometimes also smells fishy sometimes not. The color is milky white, but sometimes it is greenish. But it does not hurt when urinating. I checked into Obgyn then prescribed Floragyn capsules 2x a day. Then I browse on the internet, said an article, the drug should not be given to pregnant women. Now, what confuses me, is the drug safe for me to consume the dock? But if I don’t drink it, I’m also worried about my baby’s condition if I experience vaginal discharge continuously.
Thank you for the question.
Whiteness that feels itchy, smells fishy, milky white or greenish, and excessive discharge is not a normal condition, but can indicate your intimate organs have an infection (such as due to fungus, bacteria, or parasites), irritation, and even malignancy. Other factors, such as hormonal fluctuations, stress, and fatigue, can also cause more vaginal discharge.
Handling of vaginal discharge can be different depending on the cause. The condition of you who are pregnant can also affect the decision of the doctor in providing treatment. A good doctor, of course, will only give a treatment to his patients, if the perceived benefits far exceed the potential side effects.
Floragyn contains active ingredients of good bacteria that are normally found in the vagina, namely Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus reuteri. By administering this drug, it is hoped that the population of pathogenic microorganisms (causing diseases) in the vagina can be minimized, so that vaginal discharge improves. Giving this drug to pregnant women can be done, as long as there are medical indications that require it, and as long as it is done under the supervision of a doctor. So, don't worry, if you are still doubtful about this, you can ask for a second opinion by going back to another obstetrician.
In order for the vaginal discharge to subside more quickly, in addition to undergoing treatment according to the doctor's advice, you also need to be more careful in maintaining the cleanliness of your sex organs, do not engage in unhealthy sex, do not carelessly use soap or fragrance around the sex organs, drink plenty of water, and drink more water avoid excessive stress and fatigue.
I hope this helps.
