When we are pregnant, numerous situations arise that we do not control or that we are unaware of and that can create some insecurity or uncertainty. For example, one of the most common doubts among pregnant women is how to tell if there is a tear in the amniotic sac.
We explain How to know the amniotic fluid sac has ruptured before delivery or there has been a leak and how to differentiate it from vaginal discharge.
Throughout the 9 months of pregnancy, our body undergoes numerous changes and we experience new sensations that we have never felt before. Others on the contrary can make us doubt between one or another meaning.
Sometimes we can notice that our underwear is damp and the question arises: How to know if I have broken the bag or it is simply vaginal discharge?
The rupture of the bursa also known as amniorrhexis It occurs when there is a leak of the amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby and is expelled through the vagina. Sometimes it can be very abundant and evident, it is like a sensation of peeing without being able to control our sphincter, it can occur in any situation, and others nevertheless it can occur in small quantities making us doubt whether it is a flow or rupture of the bag.
It could also simply be slight urine leakage caused by the weight of the baby and the uterus on our bladder.
Another option is that these losses are simply about flow that increases during pregnancy due to the hormonal changes that the future mother undergoes during the nine months of pregnancy and as a measure of prevention of possible infections. This discharge can turn whitish, with a little odor, and is a normal and common sign.
As your due date approaches this flow can become even more abundant and dense, and it can be a sign of expelling the so-called mucous plug that protects the uterus and that can be detached little by little, although it does not always happen, as labor begins.
If that vaginal discharge turned very white it could be vaginal yeast infection which is very common in pregnant women. It is a fungal infection in the vagina during pregnancy and is very common especially during the second trimester of pregnancy. It generates an increase in flow, whitish in tone, generates a certain odor, and causes itching and stinging in the vagina.
If we have any uncertainty, if you have any questions the most advisable thing is to go immediately to our doctor so that you can assess the origin of that loss or flow and thus avoid unnecessary risks.
