Hi anyone out there having this itchy sensation at the vaginal esp during the nite time? I had this for nearly a week on and off. I got to keep waking up to wash it to ease the itch and burning sensation... Does anyone know how to ease the itch or anything to apply?
yup.. me too... i was put on antibiotics by my gynea..
Thanks for the advice. Ya im in my last trimester. Having this irritating itch for days. Im going to c my gynea tml hopefully can cure it before delivery.
what antibiotics did the the gynea give you? Is it Neoderm cream?
that time i also infection.. but no itchy no pain.. only got those yellowish-greenish discharge.. went to my gynae and she put some medi for me, prescribe medi, cream and a type of soap to wash.. =) she prescribe me neoderm cream.. but it would be best to consult your gynae before using any..
for mine its not cream... one is an antibiotic medicine n the other is a box of orange sachet to drink with water..
to reduce tis kind of infection, it is good to use feminine wash regularly esp when you have heavier discharge days~
I've had the same yellowish-greenish discharge since 32 weeks onwards. When I saw my gynae for check-up at 35 weeks, we found out that I had urine infection. She prescribed me a week's supply of antibiotics to finish. Now at 37 weeks, discharge is gone.
Its said that its best not to use perfumed soap. Just mild soap will do. Those brands like Lux or the sweet smelling ones can cause further irritation.
Im still using femine wash not knowing I should not use it. I went to my gynea on Sat and she gave me Neoderm cream to apply on the affected area as I do not have any discharge it seems to help.
my gynae didn't prescribe me any oral antibiotics..
just inserted medicine there..
but it still doesn't seem to solve the problem..
infection and discharge still have.. sian..
worried might affect baby.. but gynae say wun..
Is it yakult can help? I did not drink yakult since im pregnant. Maybe can try...
before pregnant i drink daily cos my dear daughter love it so I drink with her. Now only drink when feel like having it. Think I should continue drinking.
May I ask how is the test for vaginal infection done? How long does it take to get the result?
I've been feeling a tingling sensation since almost a week ago, not exactly itchy but kinda like ticklish.
I did an urine culture test when I told my gynae that I suspected urinary tract infection. Do they also test it for vaginal infection? Called the hospital this morning and was informed that the result is negative but I am still having this irritating sensation that's impossible to ignore.
I'm thinking of going to the polyclinic tomorrow, should I?
Drink good amount of cranberry juice as it one of the most simple and natural way of treating urinary tract infection. It prevents as well as heals the infection due to its medicinal properties.
Drink lots of water helps flush out bacteria. Take showers instead of bubble bath, avoid douching and scented sprays as this causes infection and irritation.
Is it possible to have vaginal infection even though my urine culture test result shows that there's no trace of bacteria?
Hi Elainesoh07, if you find anything amissed like discharge getting heavier & smell alittle, pls head down & see your gynae/doc to ensure you dont't develop serious UTI like mine.
Just to share, I do change my pantyliner regularly and I dont't have any weird sensation or the urge to wash there but UTI hit me the hardest during my 10weeks pregnancy (now at 36 weeks) without me realising it. Got up one day, shivering (literally legs shaking and stammering) when I was rushed down to the hospital (Thomson Medical Center). So many people staring at me; dammm embarrassing... cos it looks like i had some ecstasy pills or something alike. not exactly a pretty sight... Running a super high fever at 40degrees.
After the gynae & neurologist came and check, got a shocking truth that the UTI have spread to my kidney area. hmmm its pretty risky cos they can't give me any pills cos it would affect the baby and I was on antibiotic drip for several days.. *groans.
Till this day, my guy is, still very much traumatised by my shaken look.. and now he does load up Cranberry Juice (dont't get those cocktail type; i feel very sugary ; if you like sour and 100% type, this brand called Lakewood from Cold Storage is good) Like what Shiseru mentioned, drink plentiful of water!
Hi dear all,
Just to share..
Cranberry is good.. its help to maintain healthy urinary tract. Thus prevent infection like yeast or fugi and urinary tract infection.. I m now 10 weeks pregnant, currently taking Cranberry Pills every day 2 times daily to prevent the infection from developing. I prefer taking the pills cos I find the juice too sugary. From the beginning of my pregnancy till now, i have slight syptoms of infection, with popping the pills daily it help to ease the discomfort....
