Vaginal Odor During Pregnancy - What Does It Mean?

Author: Melanie

Vaginal odor during pregnancy is a common issue which women face. This happens due to an increase in the secretion of fluids and mucus from the cervix. As a result excess moisture gets accumulated in the vaginal area. This combined with changes happening in the acidic levels of the vagina make it an excellent breeding ground for the vaginal infection causing bacteria to thrive and multiply.

During pregnancy odor may be accompanied by a cheesy yellowish discharge and vaginal itching.

These symptoms and vaginal odor during pregnancy is a clear indication of a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis. In this article I am going to share information on pregnancy and bacterial vaginosis..

Bacterial vaginosis occurs when the pH balance of the vagina is disturbed for any reason whatsoever. This vaginal infection causes a fishy vaginal odor which can be avoided by taking certain precautions like:

a) Making use of cotton panties which absorb excessive discharge thereby reducing the odor.

b) Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes which will make the vagina and groin area sweat more. Moist and damp conditions are the best breeding ground for the infection causing bacteria.

c) Make use of panty liners to absorb the discharge and mask the odor to some extent. Be sure to change the panty liners at regular intervals.

d) Sleep without underwear at night to let the vagina breathe freely.

e) Do not make use of soaps which may contain chemicals in the vaginal area. It is sufficient to clean the vagina with plain water twice a day.

f) Drink 2-3 liters of water to rule out the possibility of the infection being transmitted through the urinary tract.

If vaginal odor during pregnancy persists despite the use of these natural cures for more than 10-15 days please do consult your doctor.

About the Author

I am an ex banker turned home maker. As soon as I reached the age of 40 I started experiencing a number of typical "women's problems". Like most others I too always resorted to modern medicines as my first line of treatment. Needless to say it was always accompanied by a number of side effects. Sick and tired of bearing up with the side effects I decided to do some research of my own. Thanks to internet I came across ideas and methods of natural cure for most of these typical women's issues. I have tried these out personally and now am a strong believer in nature cure. Nature Cure is absolutely safe, has no side effects and offers permanent solution for most of our problems.

    Abdominal Myomectomy for Uterine Fibroid Tumors?
    I have done my research, so I am really looking for answers based on the personal experience of other women. PLEASE, serious responses only.

    Background: I’m 34 and I have uterine fibroid tumors, diagnosed by internal ultrasound. 2 of the 3 are quite large. 1 is pedunculated. I know that small, asymptomatic fibroids are commonly left untreated, but in my case, my doctor recommends removal because of the size and my symptoms. My symptoms include pain, enlarged abdomen, bladder/urinary issues, pain during intercourse and even tampon use, dysfunctional vaginal bleeding (like a period, but for 2+ wks of the month, in addition to my week-long, heavy period), etc. My doctor also recommends surgery because removal will increase my chances (from my current state) of being able to conceive later.

    In my case, my doctor determined that the only surgery available to me is abdominal myomectomy. (There are less evasive treatments including medications and laparoscopy, but I do not qualify for them.) This surgery involves a 4-5″ horizontal incision in my abdomen and an incision in the uterine wall once the uterus is lifted out through the incision. If I am later able to conceive, and if I successfully carry a child near term, I will have to have a planned C-section birth a few weeks early due to the weakening of the uterine wall.

    I know there are risks as with any surgery (blood loss, anesthesia issues, etc.). The possible complications for this specific surgery include infertilization, unexpected hysterectomy, excessive scar tissue, recurrence of the fibroids, etc. For me, my desire for a normal quality of life and my hope of having children both outweigh the risks.

    My questions are:

    (1) How long will this surgery take to recover (i.e., when may I walk and sleep without excruciating pain, return to the desk part of my job, exercise – cardio, situps)? My research says it takes 2-6 weeks to return to work, varying from person to person. I am healthy, relatively active, and have a fairly high tolerance of pain. Can anyone similar to me describe the approximate recovery time?

    (2) What other personal experience can you share (i.e., post-surgery pregnancy, infertilization, surgery complications, recurrence, pregnancy complications/miscarriage, etc.)?

    (3) If you did experience infertilization (not caused by unexpected hysterectomy), is In Vitro still an option?

    THANK YOU!!

    i would like to know if using large sex toys or fisting can be a cause for fibroid tumors?
    my wife has had surgery to remove fibroid tumors. for about a year things were good but now it looks as if they have returned. we enjoy vaginal streatching in our sex play and were wondering if the use of large set toys might be a cause of the return. has anyone any experience with this?

      Absolutely not. I regularly drive a Sherman tank up my wife’s vagina and the only problem she has encountered is when I fire the main gun. She is allergic to cordite.

    fibroid tumors and pregnancy?
    In October (this year) I had a miscarriage. In the er they performed a vaginal ultrasound. They found a decent sized fibroid tumor on my uterus. My doctor told me I need to see a different doctor to discuss my options.
    Does anyone else have these? Were you able to carry a child full-term? I’m worried that If I get pregnant again I’ll miscarry. I’m sure my best option is surgery, but It terrifies me (I’ve had surgeries before but I was young).
    Thank you.

    • Mrs. White  says:

      Fibroid tumors can grow rapidly during pregnancy, taking up the space in the uterus and hindering the growth of the foetus.

      They can also degenerate and bleed which can cause you, the mother, to experience pain, nausea, and other side effects varying from mild to severe.

      Women who have fibroid tumors in their uteruses are only slightly more likely to miscarry or have preterm labour than women who do not have them.

      That all being said, they are generally only problematic for about 20% of women so there is a good chance that your miscarriage was not, in fact, caused by your fibroids. It really depends on where in your uterus the fibroids are and how large they are.

      The best thing do to, in your case, would be to seek further medical attention from a gynaecologist. You may not need surgery to remove them. There are actually medications (pills, I believe) that shrink your fibroids.

      Sorry about your miscarriage, I’ve had two and I understand what you are going through.

      Good luck!

    Fibroid tumors and miscarriage?? Kinda Graphic, sorry.?
    ok so, I was 7 weeks pregnant and on Sunday I started bleeding really heavily after a few days of light spotting. I thought it was the start of a miscarriage and since this was the second time I had went through this I just decided to wait and call the doctor in a few days after I thought everything had passed. Last time I evacuated everything naturally. So, last night I went to the restroom. I had been constipated and I had taken some Metamucil to try and help me go. So, I was just sitting there waiting and I felt something. It was not normal. It was in the front, Vaginal, and it felt like I was pushing a baby out. Now, I know at 7 weeks the baby was no bigger than a apple seed. So, I looked down and there was this huge mass of tissue. It was NOT a blood clot, and it was NOT pregnancy tissue. So, I put it in a baggy and went to the E.R. because I really thought it was part of one of my organs. I know that sounds silly, but thats the only thing I could think of.
    So after they looked at me at the E.R. They told me I would have to do a fallow up with my obgyn. I knew that I just wanted to see what that thing was and make sure I wasn’t hemoraging. Well the bleeding almost stopped right after I got rid of that thing. The doctor told me it was NOT a blood clot and that he was about 50% sure it was not pregnancy related. He said he would have to wait on lab results, but he was pretty sure it was a fibroid tumor. And that if I had one I more than likely have several. I came home and looked up some info online. Most info I found said that fibroids usually occur in women 30-45. I’m only 23!! This is my second miscarriage and we tried for fours years in between. So, my question is, have any of you had something like this happen to you at my age? Do any of you have fibroid tumors? If so, have you been able to have children? I do to my obgyn on Monday, but my mind is racing. I’m really worried, Thanks for reading and thanks for helping.

      My sister had a fibroid tumor the size of a baseball that would cause her to hemorrhage 3 weeks a month. She finally had it removed (after being told she’d need a hysterectomy) at Beaumont Hospital in Michigan. She went on to have to children after it was removed.
