One of the earliest signs of pregnancy is vaginal discharge. Referred to as leukorrhea, the substance is white, thin, and milky. It has a mild odor and is completely normal.
If you are experiencing vaginal discharge, keep in mind that there are a few things to avoid. Never use tampons while pregnant. They can bring new germs into your vagina. Also, stay away from douching. Douching upsets the natural pH and bacteria balance in your vagina and will lead to infection. In addition, treating the discharge like an infection can cause additional issues. If you’re concerned about leukorrhea, use panty liners and notify your doctor.
