Pregnancy can cause a lot of unexpected changes to your body. While it is important that you pay attention to these changes, you don’t need to stress over every small thing you notice. A lot of these changes are incredibly common and not a sign of something more serious.

An increase in vaginal discharge is actually very common. It is caused by an increase in hormone levels, which is triggered by pregnancy. In most cases, the discharge will not have a foul odor and should not cause any irritation. If these problems do occur, an over-the-counter product can help. If the issue persists for longer than three days, you should see a medical professional.
