Women may notice an increased cervical discharge when they are pregnant. Leukorrhea is a whitish colored vaginal discharge that women often see during pregnancy. The higher levels of estrogen produced during pregnancy cause the cervical glands to secrete more cervical fluid. It may become more noticeable as a woman gets further along in her pregnancy and is most common in the third trimester. However, some women may notice leukorrhea in early pregnancy.
