Sorry if TMI but I'm after a bit of advice. I'm 26+4 and irritated down there. It seems to have gradually gotten swollen and red, is this normal? Besides this it seems a bit irritated and I have some discharge. Earlier in my pregnancy I had bacterial vaginosis (diagnosed through swabs) and was treated for it with antibiotics and after a few days it went away. With this I had no swelling and more discharge.
I went back to docs when this episode started and I've had the same meds but it's not doing anything. I'm starting to wondered if this time it's just normal pregnancy swelling. There is some mild irritation that is eased by bathing, pressing cold compress in area. The discharge is minimal but thick.

Is it itchy?

Mildly itchy occasionally, it's not like thrush more like the irritated skin is itchy.
I've called the docs, but they said I need to see the nurse if the antibiotics aren't working and there's a 5 day wait.

They are talking crap. I hate how receptionists are so protective of their appointments. Just phone,ask for an urgent same day appointment, any doctor and they should give you an appointment within 48 hours or you can go to open surgery. 99% of surgerys have an open surgery usually in the morning where u queue fir same day appointments?
Any probs passing urine?
