Vaginal Discharge During Pregnancy

Normal physiological discharge is the most common cause of vaginal discharge in women of reproductive age. Normal physiological discharge changes with the pregnancy. Due to the effect of progesterone,cervical secretion is copious and tenacious.

Abnormal vaginal discharge is characterized by a change of colour, consistency, volume, or odour, and may be associated with symptoms such as itching, soreness, dysuria &pelvic pain. Abnormal vaginal discharge is most commonly caused by vaginal and cervical infections. Other etiologies include STIs, PID and occasionally non-infective causes.

If you have any abnormal vaginal discharge symptoms, consult your doctor. Your doctor will do your per speculum examination to see color, consistency & volume of discharge and take high vaginal swab for culture sensitivity and treat accordingly.

If you feel watery vaginal discharge same as urine, it may be an indication of rupture of the membrane, so immediately consult your doctor. If you ignore, it will be harmful to both mother & baby.
