It is possible that a heavy discharge can occur while a woman is pregnant. In fact, this is a common complaint among women who are pregnant. This often occurs because of the increased circulation that is occurring in the vaginal area and because of the hormones that are changing rapidly in the woman as well.

However, if the discharge becomes smelly, the woman should seek medical attention. This could be a sign that she has developed a vaginal infection. Along with a smelly discharge, many women with an infection also notice that the discharge is a green, white or yellow color. They may also find that they are itchy or have irritation in the vaginal area as well.

It is important that you have your healthcare provider confirm that you have an infection and talk to you about all of your treatment options. There are different medications available that are safe for you while you are pregnant and will not hurt the baby.

For some infections, it is even possible to choose an over the counter option instead of a medication that your doctor provides to you. However, it is important that you talk to your doctor about all of your symptoms first in order to make sure that you are getting the right treatment plan.
