So here’s the deal. I’ve noticed a bit of discomfort around my vagina the last week or two. It sometimes is sore for no apparent reason, and a bit itchy, but I chalked this up to recently shaving down there (I have very sensitive skin) and also the increased blood flow due to pregnancy. No unusual smells or anything, just the usual pregnancy-related excessive cervical fluid. The other night after having sex with my partner, I had EXTREME discomfort and pain around my vagina. It was so painful that I was whimpering and had to put a warm cloth on it for about half an hour before it felt better. It burned when I went pee after as well, but this didn’t continue past that evening and the next day everything was normal again.
Next day, pain and discomfort after sex again, although this time I was careful to use a lot of lube in case my vagina was just getting irritated during sex. This time it was less intense. I didn’t have to put a cloth on it or anything, and it eventually subsided.
Just want to say that I’ve had an STI check less than a year ago and it was negative (same for my partner). Any ideas? Could this be pregnancy related change or an infection?
