Welcome to ehealthforum,
Vaginal infections and UTI’s are common during pregnancy and can be recurrent. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest and discuss your symptoms, go ahead with getting examination and investigations done to look for the cause and identify causative agent if infection is suspected. Infections should be treated early to prevent spread upwards to uterus and to baby that could lead to complications. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation and keep the area clean and dry. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection.
