In our social context, vagina is probably the most underrated organ in women! No one ever tells you how that area feels, how we should take care of it and when should we be worried about it!
During pregnancy and childbirth, the vagina assumes high stature! It is the gateway to many kinds of discharges - some healthy, some unhealthy, but all equally embarrassing!
Here’s a lowdown on what your vaginal discharges might be telling you:
1. White discharge
Various hormonal changes occur during pregnancy. A thick mucus plug is generally present in the cervix during the initial days of pregnancy. As the cervical canal starts dilating with the progression of pregnancy, this plug gets pushed out in the form of slimy white vaginal discharge.
2. Inflammation and infections
3. Smell, Gas and Heaviness
These symptoms are all normal and do not need any medical intervention.
Your vagina needs your love! During labour, your vagina will give way to your darling baby!
