    Hello madam. Sorry about this. Do you mean the area where urine passes? Do you think it is related to childbirth? When did you deliver? Do you get burning on urination or increased frequency of urine. Awaiting your response.

    Thank you. I don't know what that place is call, but I know is the environment of the actual place i pass urine, it's actually been happening since i got pregnant i mean but no irritation, no burning sensation or any form of discomfort no increase in urination, that swollen just comes nd goes and this time little discharge is associated instead of my vaginal to be pink it's looks so whitish pale

    Did you have stitches during delivery and is the place healed? How long has this been going on? You may be having a urinary tract infection.

    The infection was not well taken care of hence the recurrences you have been experiencing. See your Doctor for a high vaginal swab microscopy culture (mcs) and sensitivity and a urinalysis and urine mcs to determine the causative organism and appropriate medications for treatment. Take care

    Okay. But what can be the possible cause of this infection doctor....
    Dr. Olabisi A answered:

    Females generally have a short urethra and so there is a increased risk of infections getting into the urinary system. Pregnancy is a risk factor because body's immunity is low at this time.

    Please do not panic. I understand how you feel. You should have the tests done before taking drugs so you will know the antibiotics is sensitive and will take care of it once and for all. Cheers
