Hi I am 1 month pregnant and I want to know if it is normal to have that gushy stuff in my underware? I am 16

Yes, increased discharge is normal and will continue to happen throughout your pregnancy. If you start to itch and the discharge is thick and curd-like it means you probably have a yeast infection. You can treat a yeast infection by yourself with Monistat, available at any drugstore. Don't let it go b/c it gets worse and the itching is very unpleasant.

If you are pregnant you have to be careful about treating a yeast infection. I have used Monistat in the past and it caused me to have a period within two days of my starting it. So it seems to me that using it during pregnancy is potentially harmful to the baby. I suggest you speak to a doctor and find a safe way to treat the infection. In the meantime, keep yourself very clean, wear cotton underwear and change it often.

I will be going to the doctor on Friday. And yeah I will ask him about it .And if it causes my period to come then no b/c yeah like you said that will not be good for my baby. Thank you for your advice.

The doctor will tell you that Monistat is safe, as they told me. It also comes with a v____al anti-itch cream that you can use on the outside. The problem is that the v____al suppositories only work for a week or two and the yeast infection usually returns. It is a part of pregnancy you will need to learn to live with. I have stopped treating mine, I know it is gross, b/c it is useless and costly. Diflucan (prescription treatment) should not to be taken during pregnancy.
