im 27 weeks and down there is so swollen and has been for weeks(my hubby and i cant even have sex it hurts toooo bad), my hubby says its bright red, and i have discharge all the time. its a whitish discharge. when i look in the toilet after i pee it looks like milk is mixed in. there is no smell at all, no burning, or itching. discharge is normal for my pregnancys( i feel like i pee myself at least 3 times a day but its discharge) yet last time i went in the doctor told me it wasnt normal??!!

i had a yeast infection 2 weeks ago without any symptoms just a call from the doc telling me. i used Monistat as directed could it have not gone away?? should i call the doctor??

I would definitely call the doctor.  That is not normal for it to be like that and you could still have an infection.

swelling and heavy discharge can be normal but the fact that its red would concern me

Yes you need to call your Dr. and they need to see you. I had a yeast infection with my 2nd pregnancy that lasted 3 months, with medication. They are awful!

 I had severe swelling but not discharge, I would call the doc. My swelling was normal.

 I had the same problem..  A yeast infection with out all of the symptoms.. My doc told me that during pregnancy, sometimes it never COMPLETELY goes away.. because yeast is so much higher during pregnancy.  he gave me a prescription, and I used it twice.. it is still there a little bit..  But i am just going to wait it out since i am due with in the next 2 weeks..  But I would ask the doc for a prescription if it is making you uncomfortable

 there is definatly something going on. I would talk to your doctor and tell them whats going on, maybe you need an antibiotic instead of monistat. I personally cant get rid of yeast infections with Monistat alone...not that i get them alot but the few iv had..

hope it gets better!

 Um..... 100% go get checked out! I was misdiagnosed (my doctor was a f*cking idiot) and didnt catch a yeast infec that I had, and let it go on for so long that she ended up frying my nerve endings down there by making me take too many antibiotics

Get it taken care of ! So many other things can go wrong that you dont wanna risk it! Boo monostat too.... That can be sometimes a waste!

Sounds like a yeast infection or another infection--vaginosis? Call your doctor :)
