This is a little odd adult content

I am 16 weeks pregnant and I have a bright yellow secretion, an occasional red or brown spot every few days but tiny tiny, not worried about that. The other night we tried having sex and we stopped because I noticed I was a little itchy. Yesterday I called my gyno and said im pretty sure its a yeast infection and we got stuff for it (Dh did and brought it home at 1am, I had a wicked headache and was cramping depending on the position I was in at the moment. Any thoughts? I have an apt next thursday.

  • I got the okay and havent used it yet because I had the headache and the pain. I wouldnt describe it as cramping more like the baby lays in a spot and it vibrates pain until I push it away from where I hurt.

  • sounds like bacterial vaginosis...could be yeast too tho...they happen together a the will need an antibiotic...i have a very picky vagina and i get both of these often...the cramping tho is worrisome so dont try to take care of this on your own...

  • The most important thing right now is to not stress as that will not be any good for you or the baby. Try to rest as much as possible. Good luck at the doctor.

  • Does you doctor know about the headaches and the cramping? Those aren't typical signs of an infection.
