What just came out of me?!

Symptoms: Sticky white or pale yellow discharge can be constant during pregnancy, leaving you feeling in frequent need of new undies.

Talk to your doctor if: it develops a foul odor, itches or burns, or becomes greenish-yellow or very thick or watery; you may have an infection.

Cause: Increased hormones and vaginal blood flow.

How to deal: Wear a lightweight sanitary pad, and use personal wipes for a quick cleansing. Don't douche or use vaginal deodorants; they can be irritating.
