Discharge Is Not Always Infection

They can make it, can predispose you a little bit more to yeast infections because of the hormones. But it is also normal to have increased vaginal discharge during pregnancy. That is not necessarily an infection. A lot of times people see that increased weight discharge, and because it’s more than what they’re used to, they think that they have an infection. So, unless you have itching, irritation, redness, and pain, it’s probably just the normal increase in vaginal discharge. If you do have any of those symptoms, then I would suggest that you see your providers so that they can take a look and look at the discharge under the microscope and make sure that they’re treating it properly.
