  • You get extra discharge, called lokorrea(I didn't spell that right sorry) when pregnant, I've never had it that heavy though. I'd just ask your midwife, I doubt it's anything to worry about. Though the itchy COULD signal an infection.

  • Rachell9503- OP here, thanks for the info. I knew i was called something but it can turn yellow after it has dried, it is very itchy, painful and it burns. i try not to scratch but its unbearable! some time it feels like i had sex for a long time with hubby and its sore. I think im going to send her a email and ask. thanks
