Congratulations! You’re having a baby. It’s time to break out the diapers, the pacifiers, and lullabies. As most moms have warned, life won’t just be about those cute baby things. There’s morning sickness, nausea, and possibly some urinary or vaginal issues.
Don’t worry—these are all very normal in pregnancy. Your body is changing and working overtime every second to form that little bundle of joy, so you may want to take it easy on yourself as to why you may be experiencing quite a couple of not-so-pretty conditions and problems.
Pregnancy has its ups and downs, but thankfully, these are all temporary and always worth it once you see your little one for the very first time. Here are some of the very common vaginal problems moms-to-be encounter during pregnancy:
- Candidiasis. Also known as yeast infection. This is caused by the hormone changes in your body that disrupt the pH balance of your vagina. Its symptoms are vaginal itching and a white, thick discharge that resembles cottage cheese. Candidiasis can be easily treated by over the counter medications but you must seek your doctor’s advise if you suspect to have this problem.
- Stress incontinence. Ever experienced a bit of pee leaking after a big sneeze or when you laugh? It can be embarrassing but remember—this is completely normal in pregnancy. Stress incontinence is caused by the pressure your ever-growing uterus places on your bladder which often causes less control. Prevent this condition through Kegel exercises—which is by stopping your urine stream for a few seconds at a time every time you pee. Kegels strengthens your urethra and the muscles around your vagina and anus. This exercise is especially helpful to prepare for normal childbirth delivery. Kegels also help prevent incontinence post-delivery.
- Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). One to three percent of women encounter a urinary tract infection during their pregnancy. This is again caused by your expanding uterus which crowds your bladder. It prevents you from emptying your bladder completely, thereby exposing it to bacteria for longer periods of time. Making sure you are faithful in going to all your OB visits for your pre-natal checkups can help you avoid and prevent developing UTI. As your pregnancy progresses, your doctor will most likely request for you to take a few exams to ensure you do not have any infection that will not affect you or your baby.
These common urinary and vaginal problems in pregnancy may be troublesome and even embarrassing at some point, but you do not have to add this to your list of worries any longer.
