Leucorrhoea is actually a natural condition that occurs in women. And the fluid produced by the vagina will increase during pregnancy because more blood flows into the cervix as labor approaches. Usually in a few days before delivery, vaginal discharge will begin to become thick mucus and contain blood.
However, if the discharge that occurs during pregnancy is accompanied by other complaints such as itching or discoloration of the vaginal discharge, then you should consult directly with an obstetrician. Because if it is proven that an infection in the vaginal area will be dangerous for the condition of your womb.
So you shouldn't be embarrassed to consult your gynecologist. If it feels uncomfortable, you can ask your husband or family to accompany you during the examination process.
In the meantime, some suggestions that you can do are:
Always keep your feminine area clean by cleaning it with warm water, avoid using certain feminine cleaning products. Try to keep your feminine area dry to reduce the risk of infection When washing the feminine area after urinating, start from front to back Avoid using pantyliners for more than 4 hours.
