We all know that our Perineal area is most prone to infections such as bacterial,fungal or yeast especially during pregnancy or mensuration cycle.most prone to infections and bacterial or yeast growth, specially during menstruation cycle.Bacteria,Yeast normally live in the vagina in small quantity.Due to unhygienic lifestyle it will increase in number and may leads to vaginal infections,and start itchy or smelly discharge.
Yeast inf are common type of vaginal infection caused by microscopic fungi in the candida family.These are more common in pregnant women.During pregnancy higher level of estrogen causes your vagina to produce more glycogen, making it even easier for yeast to grow there.Sometime they come and go as their own.Symptoms may include:
-Itchiness, irritation, soreness, burning, and redness /swelling in your vagina.
-White,creamy odorless vaginal discharge.
-Burning when you urinate
-Pain during sex
If you think you have a yeast infection, see your doctor,he can recommend a specific anti-fungal medicine that is safe.Oral antifungal drugs are not recommended during pregnancy.Creams and suppositories with clotrimazole are more effective than other.Try wash your vagina with a lotion, Lactacyd (Lactic acid+Lactoserum) 2 or 3 times a day,it is available over the counter.And note that it is not a good idea to diagnose and treat yourself without seeing a doctor..
