I am 5 months pregnant and only recently have i been having problems. At first i had self diagnosed myself with a yeast infection and had contacted a nurse to see what i was and was not able to take to get rid of it.

I took an over the counter medication a 1-day tablet with the external creme to lessen swelling and irritation.

The symptoms seemed to have subsided and it seemed to have been gone. My husband and i had sex once after the infection went awat and it was fine now the day after we had sex again and now everything down there is extremely swollen and it is even uncomfortable and painfull to walk.

What could it be?
Ive never had a reaction to semen in the past so i dont think it could be an allergy to that and i am allergic to latex but we do not use latex condoms.
There is no abdominal pain or bleeding although i found spots of blood as if there was dome sort of small cut ( prior to having sex )

  • I would go to your doc and have him/her look. Not to worry you but I had similar issues for years and was recently diagnosed with vulvar cancer. Its not aweful if caught quickly so better to be sure then to put it off. I am 5 months pregnant and only recently have i been having problems.
