I’m 17 and I’m 8 months pregnant. Me and my partner have had sex and we have ruled out that it isn’t an STI but I have a really bad itch downstairs. I can’t seem to find a way to relieve it and I’m not sure if it it thrush either. I do get a strange discharge but it doesn’t smell. I don’t know what else it could be.

Could probably be thrush, but it is important to go to the gp or sexual health clinic just to get checked out just incase as you are pregnant and they could help prescribe medication suitable for you; you can try purchasing clotrizamole cream to help with the itch.


I would still attend a sexual health unit for examination tomorrow. It's most likely thrush in pregnancy but there can be other important causes.


It could most likely be thrush, best to go to a sexual health clinic. In the meantime, get over the counter clotrizamole cream, 2% w/w, to help. In addition, you can use organic coconut oil as well in the external affected area (but never internally) and it can soothe the itch as well. Do NOT use scented or perfumed substances around the area, so no soaps, shampoos or body wash. And try to wear cotton underwear, and airy clothes that don't make your crotch area hot or moist. Gently dap the area with toilet paper after you've done your ones and twos, don't wipe roughly, and do it front to back if you can. Drink lots of water, and afterwards you may get an itch around the crotch area. Don't fret it's most likely eczema, just ask your doctor about it and they should prescribe eczema cream. I hope you have a healthy few weeks left of pregnancy!
