Pregnancy is one of the most challenging milestones in a woman’s life. There’s morning sickness, nausea, and health issues to deal with. Here are just some of the common conditions preggy women out there are prone to:
1. Yeast infection or Candidiasis
Also known as yeast infection. This is caused by the hormone changes in the body that disrupt the pH balance of the vagina. Its symptoms are vaginal itching and a white, thick discharge that resembles cottage cheese. Candidiasis can be easily treated by over the counter medications but you must seek your doctor’s advise if you suspect to have this problem.
2. Stress incontinence
Ever experienced a bit of pee leaking after a big sneeze or when you laugh? It can be embarrassing but remember—this is completely normal in pregnancy. Stress incontinence is caused by the pressure your ever-growing uterus places on your bladder which often causes less control. Prevent this condition through Kegel exercises—which is by stopping your urine stream for a few seconds at a time every time you pee. Kegels strengthens your urethra and the muscles around your vagina and anus. This exercise is especially helpful to prepare for normal childbirth delivery. Kegels also help prevent incontinence post-delivery.
3. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)
One to three percent of women encounter a urinary tract infection during their pregnancy. This is again caused by one’s expanding uterus which crowds the bladder. It prevents one from emptying the bladder completely, thereby exposing it to bacteria for longer periods of time. Making sure you are faithful in going to all your OB visits for your prenatal checkups can help you avoid and prevent developing UTI. As the pregnancy progresses, your doctor will most likely request for you to take a few exams to ensure you do not have any infection that might affect you or the baby.
