    Default Vagina infections during pregnancy

    Hi there,

    I am currently 36 weeks pregnant and I am experiencing some soreness and itchiness down below. I have had thrush twice during this pregnancy amd have treated it with medications from the pharmacy. This time it is a bit different though as my discharge has been a yellowy clear colour. Anyway, I visited the midwife and she took some swabs. Results dont come back for two days and she said I may have to take antibiotics if they come back positive. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know if it will effect my baby?

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    Sounds like thrush again sweetheart - sorry.

    thrush put me into ptl at 27 weeks with my son - but at your stage it's not going to be a great problem if you go into labor - they probably wouldn't even stop you at this stage.

    There's tablets at the chemist - I can't for the life of me remember them, but they've got a white label with orange and blue writing - in the fridge section, they've got live bacteria in them, they're FABULOUS for keeping away thrush etc while pg... I had to take them for months! I'm sorry I can't remember the name - but maybe someone else konws the ones im talking about?!

    I have a similar thing but it is more of an irritation than thrush. ive had thrush and this is definatelty not as bad. i thought it might be thrush starting this time but i stopped using maternity pads and it stopped. i think with all the extra heat in my body it might be that im sensitive down there. after not using the pads and only using cotton undies and sleeping bare i am fine. would be interested to see how you go. good luck
