Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hi priti
now u r in 2nd trimester...due to tht body weight and belly weight will start increasing, so u ll get leg cramps,back pain, pelvic pain...
white discharge is common in this stage bcz of hormonal functions..so dnt worry..
for leg cramps do calf muscle massages and rest ur feet in warm water for 15-20mins
for white discharge, wash with warm water...u ll be relieved..

White discharge is fairly common in Pregnancy due to hormonal changes. Leg cramps are caused mainly due to slower circulation and restricted blood flow. The first thing is to increase the water intake. About 10-12 glasses of water per day is required. Do not stand for long hours and do some calf and ankle exercises. If they do not settle consult your doctor as it could be a vitamin deficiency and a supplement will be needed.
