Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
does it smell fishy?
How weeks are your pregnant?
its a rancid smell, im about 11 or 12 weeks
This is most likely BV - Bacterial Vaginosis
what the heck is that?
You can treat this with an antibiotic such as Flagyl or Cleocin
BV is an overgrowth of your normal vaginal bacteria
i douche and bathe in baking soda and vinegar from time to time but i have never had this before
And, occurs due to pH changes in your vagina (change the acid-base balance) - and this could occur due to sex, pregnancy, or many other reasons.
YOu do NOT need to be concerned.
Douche etc will not help
not even with my first pregnancy
But, since you are pregnant, it does need to be treated, as BV is associated with preterm labor - so see your ob/gyn and get this treated.
im not having sex
But you are pregnatn
what do you mean pre-term labor. could i possbly miscarry?
could i possibly miscarry due to this bv?
Yes, you can possibly miscarry - preterm labor means contractions and possibly delivering your baby early
So, you do NEED to get this treated.
I hope this helps, if you have additional questions, please ask and Please click on ACCEPT, thank you as this would be appreciated.
the cramps are wearing off but thet have been occuring for days. could i be too late?
No, you are not too late, some doctors do not treat bv until you are at least 14 weeks, so you are fine - but I would recommend making an appointment for this week or next week to be seen.
ok. thanks. you have been a huge help. take care
