Vaginal Infections in Pregnancy

Among the causative agents of vaginal infection, candida (fungi) species that cause vulvovaginal candidosis (VVK) are the most common. Other common infections during pregnancy; Tricomonas vaginalis (TV) and Gardanella vaginalis (GV).

Increased vaginal discharge in pregnant women is mostly seen, but not mostly pathological. Vaginal discharge can be physiological or pathological. Increased mucus secretion released from the cervical glands with the effect of excessively released estrogen during pregnancy is the cause of increased natural discharge during pregnancy. The important thing here is to scan and detect sexually transmitted diseases.

In pregnancy, if the increased discharge is accompanied by odor, itching and tenderness, the discharge should be examined with the absolute sample and appropriate treatment should be planned according to the detected agent. There are agents that can be used safely in certain periods of pregnancy, and using this treatment with the recommendation of your doctor will protect your baby from the risk of preterm birth.

Some pregnant women may experience recurrent candidal infections. In these cases, repeated therapies should be applied during pregnancy. In such cases, symptomatic infections after pregnancy are frequently observed when they regress spontaneously.

We wish you a healthy pregnancy without vaginal infection.
