Hello,
You seem to be suffering from yeast infection.
Yeast infections are very common during pregnancy. In fact, they are more common among expectant mothers than any other point in a woman’s life. Many women develop yeast infections at the end of their second or during their third trimester. In most cases, yeast infections do not cause harm to the mother or the baby.
 It is always best to avoid sexual contact while the yeast infection is present unless otherwise stated by your doctor.
Treatment for such infection is easy as local creams should be enough to make you all right.
Consult your doctor for the diagnosis and treatment.
Thanks

hello,
You are carrying 7 months plus pregnancy and suffering from vaginal itching following sexual activity.
It is due to some sort of vaginal infection/chemical irritant. Avoid sex in later months.
Use CLINGEN FORTE/3-NITE vaginal suppository for 3-5 days at bed time along with VAGISIL cream for soothing effect. Maintain genital hygiene properly. Nothing should be given inside vagina.
Continue Iron/Calcium supplements,do periodic check up with USG for FPP for assessment of fetal well being and pregnancy status,Take adequate rest with left lateral position.
Be well.
