Dear discharge is common and normal throughout pregnancy. Its just your vaginal area cleaning itself. Its completely safe and not harmful at all.
But if with discharge you are having itching or burning sensation also then it's because of infection.
UTI occurs when bacteria from somewhere outside of a woman's body gets inside her urethra (basically the urinary tract) and causes an infection.
Its important to get it checked by doctor in immediate basis to get it treated. UTI should not left untreated as it can cause some complications.
With doctor prescribed medicine you can do some home remedies also.
Here are some home remedies that can help you;
1. Drinking plenty of liquids can decrease the risk of UTIs by making you pee more, which helps remove bacteria from the urinary tract.
2. Increasing vitamin C intake may decrease the risk of UTIs by making the urine more acidic, thus killing off infection-causing bacteria.
3.Garlic is one of the most potent antibiotics, natural or prescription. You can take some in a teaspoon of raw honey (preferably this type which boosts immunity) to cover the spiciness. You want to crush your garlic clove and let it sit for 10 minutes as this creates a powerful compound called allicin to form. Take 1 crushed clove 3 times a day up or up to every 2 hours a day.
4.Cranberry juice can also be used, but it should be unsweetened, and it can be a little too tart for most taste buds.
5.Any time you use the bathroom, always wipe from front to back – starting at your vagina and wiping back to your bottom. This will keep your vagina clean, and avoid contaminating your vagina with any bacteria from your anal area.
6.Douches, feminine sprays, and scented powders can cause irritation and drying in your vagina and urethra. This can make it more likely that you’ll get a UTI. Skip these products, especially while pregnant.
