Why does discharge occur during pregnancy?
Discharge during pregnancy – a fairly common phenomenon, but despite this causes many questions and concerns. It is necessary to pay attention to the color of secretions, their abundance and consistency. Consider the most frequent questions of pregnant women regarding this topic.
Often there are discharge during pregnancy in the early stages, even when the woman herself is not known for certain that she is in a position, and when even doctors are not able to say for sure – conception occurred and whether the embryo develops. Usually, at such early periods, bright (transparent) discharges appear during pregnancy, and in rather large quantities. This situation is absolutely normal, and is explained by the action of hormones.
Another thing, when suddenly found chewy, thick, white discharge during pregnancy. They are most likely caused by candidiasis (thrush) – a very common disease among the fair sex, especially pregnant women. If you have noticed something similar in yourself – in no case do not look for your own treatment. Firstly, not every medicine can be used by the future mother (especially in the first trimester), and secondly, to clarify the diagnosis, it will be necessary to take a smear for analysis, as these symptoms are characteristic of other infections, the treatment of which has its own nuances . By the way, with infections, it is not uncommon green discharge during pregnancy with an unpleasant odor. These are, for example, with chlamydia. The disease is quite dangerous for the fetus, and therefore its treatment must be done even before conception. Otherwise, if the disease was not detected in time, and even more so if the infection occurred after conception, comprehensive treatment should be urgently started.
No less dangerous may be brown discharge during pregnancy, because they become brown due to their blood content. And this is the most disturbing sign. If the pregnancy is already confirmed, and the discharge from the vagina was observed more than once, plus there are other ailments in the form of pain or fever, it does not hurt to do an ultrasound of the uterus. Thus, it is possible to exclude ectopic localization of the ovum and detect placental abruption, which, most often, has such symptoms. “Heal” the detachment can only the female body itself, no medication will not help. However, much depends on the woman, she must help her body. For small detachments, the best treatment is a quiet, measured lifestyle without physical exertion, and in some cases even bed rest. With a large area of placental detachment, the treatment of a pregnant woman is carried out in a hospital with the help of medicines that reduce the tone of the uterus and vitamins.
If you notice bleeding during pregnancy, you should definitely go for a visit to a doctor. And if they are abundant and started suddenly – call an ambulance, as this can be very dangerous. With scanty discharge, before going to the doctor, you can take a couple of pills No-shpy for prevention – it removes well the tone of the uterus, which provokes a miscarriage. Under no circumstances, the blood flowing from the vagina to the expectant mother can not be considered the norm and do not listen to those who tell stories about periods during pregnancy – this does not happen!
Many expectant mothers have yellow discharge during pregnancy. If they are not thick and odorless, then their “danger” can be equated to transparent, slimy, which we described at the beginning of this article.
