Pregnant. Have vaginal swelling, discomfort during sleep. Reasons?

I am 29w 5d pregnant. I have had a lot of vaginal swelling in the past few weeks. Last week I got two little sores that went away in about 2 days. This week I have developed another one up higher. They aren't really on my vagina but right next to it. It has started hurting really bad to the point that I cannot get into a comfortable position to sleep and I am having trouble walking at work. What can I do for it? and what are the possible reasons for this sore?

HI and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about what you have been experiencing with your vaginal. I do hope the pregnancy stays in good shape till term for a safe delivery and a healthy baby.

Vaginal swelling represents and inflammatory reaction. Thi sis most commonly caused by infections. It could also be caused by local irritation though not as common as infections.

The best thing is to get these sore evaluated by a physician. they could actually represent and infection that may complicate the course of your pregnancy. it is better to get a closer appraisal and rule our any potential dangers before setting for anything less concerning. remember, we can always have vaginal infections even during pregnancy, this could be the case with you.

For now you may want to get some pain killers for relief, dositz baths with diluted iodine and visit your doctor for evaluation and management.

Hope this helps and guide you on how to approach this worry.
I wish you well, a healthy reminder of pregnancy, safe delivery and a healthy motherhood.
