Thanks for writing in.

It is not unusual to have feelings of numbness in the vaginal area as you have reported. At 25 weeks of pregnancy, the baby is growing inside and this may lead to movement of the gravid uterus within the abdomen. These are low intensity movements and nothing to worry about.

During such movements, there may be compression and/ or entrapment of pudendal nerves or its branches. This can lead to momentary numbness in vagina in some women. Its like an odd sensation as described with you and will surely pass off.

Hope this helps.

Numbness is common feeling during pregnancy.
Numbness with discharge should be the cause for worry.
Since you don't have discharge ,Don't worry at all.

Take Care
