Increased Vaginal Discharge

When blood flow increases to your vagina as your pregnancy progresses, there may be an increase in vaginal discharge, which is called leukorrhea. You may experience more and more white or clear, practically odorless discharge. Douching won’t help minimize normal leukorrhea, but could cause a yeast infection to develop instead. To feel more comfortable, you may want to wear panty liners or sanitary pads (don’t use tampons during pregnancy), in addition to 100% cotton underwear. Be sure to contact your doctor or midwife if you have itching, burning or a bad odor develops.
