I’m 22 years old, I’m currently pregnant, but during my pregnancy I complained of itching in my vaginal hair, when the itching was felt I often washed my vagina with warm water, and after washing the itching went away, but didn’t go away. completely, 2 3 hours later the itching recurred again,, isn’t it dangerous for my womb or the child in my womb, because I wash my vagina very often with warm water. for my womb, because during pregnancy the baby’s head position is below… thank you

Hi Chameli,


The fetus is protected by amniotic fluid, the amniotic membranes and the thick and strong uterine wall. So, the influence from the outside is quite minimal on the fetus.


The mother's body temperature is hot for a long time is thought to cause blood pressure to decrease rapidly, so that the flow of oxygen-containing blood to the fetus can be reduced and can cause disruption/defects in the fetus. This is why activities that can make the body temperature of pregnant women hotter than 39 degrees Celsius for more than 10 minutes are not recommended, such as saunas or soaking in water that is too hot for a long time. Pregnant women who have a high fever also need special care.


Of course, only washing the vagina with warm water especially in a short time does not cause an increase in overall body temperature so that it is quite unlikely to cause danger. However, inserting / spraying water into the vagina or douching is not allowed because it can harm the pregnancy.


If your vaginal itching recurs, you should consult your obstetrician. An itchy vagina can indicate an infection such as a yeast infection, bacteria, mites, or skin disorders such as dermatitis. The doctor will treat the cause of your itching and will do the appropriate treatment.
