Changes Accompanying Pregnancy

By Nabta Team

Getting pregnant comes with its own issues, especially down there. Pregnancy causes your blood volume to increase as well as major changes in your hormonal balance. This can cause you to produce increased vaginal discharge which is also a factor in causing increased itchiness down there. This increased discharge is normal, however it looks different than the discharge when you were not pregnant: it is more in quantity and stickier. Make sure to stock up on panty liners for your pregnancy. Moreover, lookout for yeast infections and schedule your regular doctor’s appointments regularly.
