The discharges which take place from the vagina during pregnancy are quite various. The most common is a profuse mucous discharge, or leucorrhoea, the best remedy for which is the daily use of vaginal injections administered with the syphon syringe. The water should be at the temperature of the body, and little force should be employed. Various remedies elsewhere recommended for leucorrhoea are useful in this form of the difficulty.
Occasionally strong gushes of a watery fluid occur, followed for some time by a dribbling of the same. The remedy for this difficulty is complete rest. Fluid discharges occurring during pregnancy should receive prompt attention, as they may indicate a liability to miscarriage.
