    Postpartum Vaginal Pain, Itch and White Discharge

    Help! Iíve been itching and feeling pain down there. Iíve also noticed thick white discharge.
    Itís been 10 weeks since I gave birth. Is this normal and would disappear on its own or should I see my gynecologist?

    Scared Mom

    Dear scared mom, I think you must be suffering from yeast infection. This is very common among women. No need to be scared about it.

    Did she give you pessaries or oral medication? Mine was really bad so I had to take oral meds and use pessaries too.

    The symptoms you mentioned are symptoms of vaginal yeast infection. Don’t just rely on what we are saying though. It’s still better to see your gyne. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Yes, do visit your gynae. No one should self medicate especially new moms like us.

    Are you breastfeeding? Breastfeeding moms must inform their doc to ensure that meds given are safe for the baby.

    I also had yeast infection but my discharge was yellowish. I was really scared and thought that my hubby must have transmitted VD to me. Thank goodness doc told me hubby was not responsible. LOL!!!

    Sorry for late reply. I’ve just been to my gyne. She confirmed that I have yeast infection. Thanks everyone for your reply.

    Yep, yeast infection is very common. I took Diflucan and it worked. My mom told me to drink lots of juice and avoid sweets.

    I was only given pessaries. She told me to see her again 5 days from now.
