So, I am 28 weeks pregnant. This entire pregnant my discharge has been really weird - there is a lot of it, it is thick, yellow (not white/clear) and it smells weird - not fishy, but there is definatley a small, sometimes I worry someone else can even smell it.<br><br>
I have been concerned the entire time and was told I had a yeast infection (never had one before but I took the cream, it didn't clear up the problem I described above) and was also prescribed metro-gel (antibiotic vaginally) in case I had a borderline infection. I have had 3 or 4 vaginal cultures which have tested negative in everything including STDs.<br><br>
My doctors are saying your ph is different in pregnancy, that's all. This is my 2nd pregnancy and my discharge was nothing like this the first time.<br><br>
Anyone else ever experience this? TIA

I will assume you don't have bacterial vaginosis, correct? I haven't had this, but I have heard that things can really change down there, and some women do have heavy discharge.

if it makes you feel any better, i am 16 weeks pregnant and have the same thing. especially the paranoia that other people can smell me, even though i stay really clean. it doesnt seem to make a difference. i havent' brought it up to my midwife....i haven't worried about it in a medical sense i guess, more in a, "am i normal? am i abnormally gooey? am i smelly?" sort of way.<br><br>
sorry for the TMI.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:
