White Dischange After Sex In Pregnancy
by Jacob Amani
Dear Madam, My girlfriend is pregnat each time we have sex she releases white things from here vigina what is that?
It is actually normal to have increase vaginal discharge during pregnancy. During early pregnancy, cervical fluid production increases to form the mucus plug which protets the pregnancy from infections forming a barrier of mucus.
Later in pregnancy, this mucus plug dissolves and this can indicate that labour is getting close.
Having a white vaginal discharge during pregnancy is normal, but talking to the doctor at the next prenatal visit is a good idea, just to double check. If the discharge is milky in color and does not have a bad smell, it is not of concern. The increased blood flow to the vaginal area and hormonal changes are responsible for this. Often sex causes the contraction of the cervical muscles leading to the pushing down of this mucus. That’s why it is often more prominent after sex.
Other causes of white discharge during pregnancy could be yeast infection. This type of dischange is very common in pregnant women due to hromnal chances and especially in early pregnancy. It is often accompanied by burning and itching of the vulva.
If this discharge only happens right after sex, it could simply be spermatic fluids coming back up.
If there is any blood or any cramping, it would be best to avoid sex and talk to a doctor.
