Hi I am 22 weeks pregnant and have a question. I have been having very heavy discharge since I was 4 weeks pregnant until 4 days ago. It suddenly out of the blue stopped! Nothing at all and I am uncomfortably dry. The discharge before was so heavy I wore panty liners but now nothing at all not even when I use the restroom. Is this normal? I always cramp but nothing any more than normal but I found this odd. Can anyone please offer advice or help or have done this? Is this normal? Thanks for the advice.

User avatar Hi shnncof,
The vaginal dryness may be associated with changes in estrogen levels as long as burning, itching etc. is not present. I would however suggest that you bring this to the attention of your physician at your next appointment.
