User :   Hello.
I am writing from France.
I am in my 30th week of my second pregnancy and lately I have been having some discomfort in my vaginal area, as if I had stitches after childbirth and if were pulling.
Then today I suddenly started getting pain in my vaginal muscles that felt like electric shocks. They were very superficial, affecting only the vaginal area, but they became quite strong and my vaginal muscles were contracting. Still are. The pain would be quite severe when I stand up, somewhat easier when I sit or lay down, but unlike anything I experienced during the first pregnancy or during childbirth.
I contacted my ob-gyn who sent me to the delivery room of the clinic to get checked out. The midwife examined me and monitored the baby, and said that the baby is fine, that I am not dialated and I don't have a urinary infection. However, she found my vaginal area red and sore and she thinks I have mycosis.
If that is the case, could mycosis possible cause such a kind of pain and muscle reaction? Could my husband get it from having relations with me? And is my baby at risk?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi!
Doctor :   let me read your query , please give me a few minutes
User :   I didn't know how this worked, so I wrote everything I could in my querry
User :   sure, thanks
Doctor :   any infection, can cause irritation of the vaginal muscles and this can cause spasmodic contractions , and this sometimes can be very painful
Doctor :   and mycosis (a fungal infection) is more common during pregnancy
User :   should i be worried?
Doctor :   and you can rest assured, that , this infection does not cause any effects either on your baby , nor to your husband
User :   that is very good to know
Doctor :   this is a very benign condition
User :   do you think that this might have been going on for a while? could this be the reason why i had this strange feeling in the last week?
User :   like i said, it felt like i had stitches again
Doctor :   you can use CANDID -B cream in the form of vaginal cream or pellets
Doctor :   no , this could be a sign of recent onset
User :   she prescribed a pellet, my husband will go to buy it after work. she said to use it tonight, because i have to lay still after i insert it.
Doctor :   which is associated with vaginal erosions , and they can cause such king of severe pain
Doctor :   yes that is fine
Doctor :   i guess she has prescribed the same medication, as i have
User :   good news then. i'm not much of a "panicker", but the pain got so strong... and i could tell that they weren't childbirth contractions, but muscles were contracting. it was really strange.
Doctor :   I do understand , and it is usual to get anxious, when u are considering the effects on the growing baby as well
User :   exactly
User :   well, this is funny now because i payed for 30 minutes of chat and we resolved the issue in 5 :)
Doctor :   using the pellet , will help the infection to resolve within a few days
Doctor :   this is usually helpful, when u provide all the history before
User :   ok, i guess i'll let you go then
