Personal question: below the belt area TMI

Ok, this is a very tmi question. Ok, I had my baby almost 8 weeks ago. I have not had my pp check up yet, they scheduled for the 10th of June, but then they called and want me to re-schedule but I cant b/c my work isnt really letting anyone take off right now, so now I dont know what to do. My question is, ive been having this discharge, in the beginning it was very mucousy and thick (kinda reminded me of a mucous plug) and I still have that kinda but sometimes it seems more white than anything. Its getting so bad that it is making me very itchy and raw.. does it sound like a yeast infection? im not sure. thanks for you help and sorry its so tmi!!

  • Im surpried that you are back at work already! I would tell my work you know what I need to go this is your health and if they dont like it oh well. I know finding another job and taking care of a family is hard without money coming in but your health is way more important so you can be on this earth to take care of your family!! Go to the doctor when you are scheduled!

  • Just call your doc and tell them...this is no longer a PP check-up...you have symptoms. It could be a yeast infection, are you taking antibiotics? It could be some other infection...you've had a lot going on down there, thats why you check-up is so important...just explain to the office that its important and get nasty if you have to.

  • Yeah, I would definitely go to the doctor. Your health is way more important and your work should understand that! I mean, you did just have a baby 8 weeks ago! I'm surprised you're already back at work! lol.
