VAGINAL ITCHING DURING PREGNANCY:
http://www.lumalove.com/ Vaginal itching during pregnancy is not unusual but it does mean that you do have a little bit of vaginal infection going on. It could range anywhere from a vaginal yeast, vaginal bacterial vaginosis, to vaginal trichomonas, to Chlamydia. There is a wide range of infections that it could be.
If you do start itching then my advice to you is to please call your doctor or midwife, nurse practitioner or whoever is taking care of you during your pregnancy and get an appointment. Please do not try to self-medicate or self-treat yourself because you might have had a similar infection before outside pregnancy and you might have some cream lying around in the drawer and might be inclined to use it. I advise you do not do that because not all creams are appropriate for pregnancy and especially if you are very early in pregnancy the cream can get absorbed into your system and could affect the growth of your baby.
I would advise you if you do get a bit of vaginal itchiness, then have some nice warm soaks. It might help a little bit with the itchiness. Also, you may even put some cold compress down below until you get to see your doctor or midwife.
Some of the vaginal infections during pregnancy can be prevented.
Some of the vaginal infections during pregnancy can be prevented and you can prevent them by keeping yourself nice and with cotton underwear which are not too tight. We definitely do not advise tight underwear anyway in pregnancy. Have good hygiene and especially when you go to the bathroom make sure that you wipe yourself properly because bacterial vaginosis is actually caused by contamination of the back passage that gets into the vagina.
The most common cause of yeast infection is too much sugar.
You know if you start eating too much sugar in the body, it can obviously be you know caused by stress as well, so try to reduce stress in your pregnancy. So if you do have vaginal itching get your appointment, get see so we could diagnose you and give you the proper medication that is safe to take during pregnancy.
