hi, i will give a very good advice to you, use yougurt as much as possible, my granny said thick yougurt or curd will not allow the growth fungus. so take plenty of thick curd, avoid sugars. you can also use vaginal tampoon dipped in curd then keep in the vaginal region for 10- 15 min, make sure that the tampoon is removed every time when you insert,other wise this only will cause more infection. try this it will really help you, i like to say thanks to my granny.

If your doctor is telling it is normal, then i gues you dont need to worry. If the discharge gets very smelly or itching gets more then you should get checked. Eat good food and drink lots of water.

this white discharge is normal in pregnancy, this is effect of hormones during the pregnancy, for me it was very minimal, so nothing to worry, it is repeated cleaning of private parts that is required. it is very irritating but no other go till the pregnancy ends.

Follow hygeinic methods, wear correct fitting cotton panties. Avoid infections. This will help to reduce the white discharge. Take lot of fruits and vegetable to improve the health and immunity. This will help to prevent infections. Avopid wet clothing. Wipe the area after taking bathand keep it dry

Hello, I had a miscarriage in July of 2013, since then my period has been irregular averaging 33 days apart each, except for last month which was 29 days apart. Now I am 6 days late in my period, which would be 35 days since my last period, and I am getting negative pregnancy tests, I ve been having a bit of diarrhea these past two days, my discharge was a lot after I ovulated on the 8th, and then it continued till recently which it slowed down, it has always been an off white creamy/liquidy/mucosy at times. I just want to know if there is still a chance I could be pregnant, and if I should call the doctor to do blood work. Thank you.
