yellowy-green booger like stuff on my toilet paper, itching, first trimester

i have some kind of infection :(

i am pretty itchy in my vagina, and vulva and labia. i don't have discharge really, but if i wipe right at the vaginal opening, sometimes there will be what looks like big yellow-green boogers.

i thought i might have a yeast infection so a couple of weeks ago i tried over the counter treatment but the cream burned so bad! i had to get in the tub and rinse it off. but then the itching did get better.

but now it's getting worse again. i was going to make an appt here but it got better. and now my first prenatal appt is in 1 week so i want to wait. it's an hour away.

do you know what kind of infection i might have, and what might be done to treat it?

oh i also tried garlic vaginally just 1 night before i tried the OTC treatment

  • Have you tried to get an earlier appointment? I'm sure if you say that you seem to have some type of infection, they'll squeeze you in. It's not good to let infections go untreated, especially while pregnant.

  • You might have some type of bacterial vaginosis..they'll want to know what's going on and how reoccuring the symptoms are everyday..if they just come and go it will probably be ok til your next appointment. But if not i'd definatley tell them.

  • oh man i can't go any earlier because of work :( i was worried but then i read that the cervix is so closed at this point that an infection cannot hurt the baby. i hope that is true... thanks ladies. i'm so nervous ...
