Question: hi I am 6 week pregnant .. I m having so much pain in my thighs , hips and back ..I m having varginal discharge also what to do??
When you become pregnant your body undergoes lots of changes and one is vaginal discharge or white discharge. Normally it is called as leukorrhea which is thin white milky and little Smell. Its normal in pregnancy and nothing to worry on. But in any point of time if you feel it's heavy discharge, more like watery urine kind of, change in color like reddish, pinkish, brownish , pale yellow and greenish with itching and burning that needs to be reported to your doctor as soon as possible. One of the most common vaginal infections during pregnancy is candidiasis, also known as a yeast infection.
Back pain is often caused by pregnancy hormones relaxing your ligaments, the tough tissues that connect your joints. The weight you naturally gain and changes to your posture as your bump grows can add to the problem. You're most likely to feel pain in your lower back. But you may also feel discomfort in your upper back, shoulders, between your breasts, and in your ribcage. Sitting or standing in one position for a long time may make your back pain worse.
If you exercise regularly, it's fine to continue, but listen to your body.
Gentle exercise, such as walking and stretching, may relieve your stiffness and pain. But don't force yourself if you feel pain, as you could strain your ligaments further.
Gentle massage can ease backache, but the effects tend to be temporary.
To support your back and prevent pain, fold a thick towel lengthwise and place it perpendicular to your body at the point on your waist or you can use pregnancy pillow.
Hip pain during pregnancy is a common symptom that you may experience. This discomfort is most often felt late in pregnancy, specifically during the third trimester. This occurs because your body is preparing itself for labor. Soreness and pain are often felt the strongest on the side where the baby tends to lie in your uterus. Practicing exercises that strengthen both the back muscles, as well as, your abdominal muscles will likely reduce hip pain.
1. One exercise that may provide relief is elevating your hips above chest level while lying on your back for a couple of minutes.
2.Taking a warm bath or applying warm compresses to the area can reduce pain.
As you get closer to your delivery date, make sure to sleep on your side and keep your legs and knees bent.
place a pillow or blanket at the small of your back and sleep leaning against it. This will reduce pressure on the hip you are sleeping on.
Question: Hiiiiii doctor i am 7weeks pregnant i am having itching in my varigina and small pimple why it happen please told dr
Answer: Hello dear, It is normal,most of women face this type of situation.... you can try this..
Try holding a cool rag or towel up against the vaginal area. Do not use hot water on the rag or it could further irritate the tissue....Eating yogurt is good for your health and helps to keep the body’s pH level balanced. You can either make a baking soda paste or add it to your bath water. Soak the area for 10 to 15 minutes to help relieve inflammation and itching. If you apply the paste to your bottom area, make sure to rinse with cool water. ...Use mild soaps, shampoos, laundry detergents and skip the bubble baths for now....
Keep your vaginal area clean and dry. Change underwear a few times daily to keep discharge away. If you have intercourse, clean up well afterwards since semen can cause irritation.Try adding a little vinegar when bathing to help balance the pH near the vagina. ..
Important Notes:...Any persistent vaginal itching that you cannot bring under control with the above home remedies, or if you develop a fever or chills needs to be evaluated and treated by your doctor.
Hope it helped, Take care urself...
