Yellow Vaginal Discharge And Vaginal Itching, Heat And Swelling?
I’m 4 months pregnant. I have vaginal discharge but it’s yellow in color, but doesn’t smell. And the vagina feels hot, itchy and swollen. Isn’t that a disease?
Hello Mr. Rahma Ishak,
Leucorrhoea is a form of discharge from the vagina which can be normal or abnormal. Leucorrhoea during pregnancy is generally normal due to increased levels of the hormone estrogen. However, it must be noted that vaginal discharge is considered normal if it is clear, whitish in color, does not smell, and does not cause other complaints such as itching, burning when urinating or during intercourse, and feeling hot. Beware if vaginal discharge changes color to gray/greenish yellow/accompanied by blood, accompanied by an unpleasant odor and accompanied by symptoms of itching/burning/discomfort in the genitals. Such conditions should be suspected as vaginal discharge and abnormal and can reflect the presence of an infection in the genital organs.
As for diseases that can give complaints of abnormal vaginal discharge, including:
Candidosis vaginalis: a yeast infection in the vagina that causes mainly itching in the genitals, burning when irritated, often accompanied by vaginal discharge with a texture like lumps of cheese/stale milk Bacterial vaginosis: inflammation of the vagina due to bacteria, can cause irritation so symptoms that can appear include a feeling of soreness , burning, itching in the vagina and thick vaginal discharge that smells unpleasant and is gray in color Trichomoniasis: a parasitic infection of the vagina with symptoms of itching, burning when urinating, vaginal discharge that has a fishy smell and can be greenish in color Herpes genitalia: an infection by the herpes virus on the genitals that appears as symptoms of sores such as canker sores on the lips of the genitals or around them, burning, burning, vaginal discharge and swelling, then there is k it is possible that this condition is an abnormal condition. It would be better for you to see your doctor immediately to get the right clinical evaluation and treatment if necessary.
