Hi Risky,

Thank you for asking

During pregnancy, the acidity and humidity levels around your intimate area change slightly. This makes it easier for you to experience infections around the intimate organs, including one that is characterized by abnormal vaginal discharge.

Vaginal discharge that is very large, resembling tofu powder, greenish in color, itchy, and also causes pain is most likely a sign that you have an infection. The most common causes of this infection are fungi, such as Candida albicans, or also protozoa, such as Trichomonas vaginalis. However, this infection may also be caused by other microorganisms, such as Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis, Gardnerella vaginalis, Human papilloma virus, and so on.

In addition to infection, vaginal discharge can also become more due to the influence of stress, irritation of intimate organs, entry of foreign objects, side effects of drugs, vaginal fistulas, to malignancy (cancer).

Vaginal discharge during pregnancy that occurs continuously should be checked directly by a gynecologist. Because, if you don't get the right treatment, it's not impossible that the microorganisms that cause infection will rise to the uterus and disrupt the continuity of your pregnancy. Therefore, check with your doctor right away. Chances are, the doctor will recommend that you undergo a urine examination and also an ultrasound to determine the right treatment.

The use of betel leaf boiled water to treat vaginal discharge is not always the right effort. In some cases, the use of boiled water for betel leaves can actually disrupt the balance of normal flora in the genitals, thus worsening vaginal discharge. Therefore, we recommend that you no longer perform these actions. To overcome vaginal discharge, in addition to seeing a doctor, you just need to keep your intimate organs clean, avoid stress, and also avoid risky sexual relationships.

Hope it helps ya..
