I'm confused by this:  I'm almost 34 weeks pregnant, and I don't have any symptoms of a yeast infection.  But after my husband and I have sex, he has what LOOKS like yeast, the clumpy white cottage cheese stuff, on his penis, from inside me.  He says he has seen some of it inside my vagina. But I've been checking daily with a mirror (because i can't even SORT of see my own hoo-ha anymore) and haven't been able to see any of it,  I have no abnormal discharge, just LOTS of the usual thick pregnancy goop.  Sometimes very yellow.   The clumpy white stuff doesn't smell bad either... it's odorless as far as I can tell.

What's going on?  Could I have a very minor yeast infection with no other symptoms?  Has anyone else experienced this?

 

Thanks in advance!

emjg: I haven't had the lumpy discharge, but I have had completely asymptomatic UTIs this entire pregnancy. And I mean, no symptoms whatsoever. But, my urine culture keeps coming back positive. It may be worth getting a urine culture done, just to check. If it turns out you need to treat for something it's best to do it before 36 weeks (for most antibiotics, anyway).

Hope that helps and you figure out the mystery soon!

I've got discharge that is similar.  But it's waaayyy up there.  Not enough for it to come out during sex but I'm an occassional cervix checker and I've noticed it.  It does seem a little lumpy but I've never thought anything about it.  I have no symptoms of anything being wrong.  I just think it's a little thicker up there near the cervix.  Or maybe I'm not drinking enough water???  Maybe ask at your next prenatal appt.
