Pregnant, swollen and sensitive labia, having yeast infection, have braxton hicks contractions. Is it due to infection?

I am 31 weeks pregnant . My labia is very swollen and sensitive. I did have a mild yeast infection on my visit last week but the dr did not give me anything for it... I have a lot of moisture which i kind of assumed was from the infection... but I am getting concerned I have had several braxton hicks contractions since last night. Last night I was in so much pain and there was so much pressure I thought i was splitting in 2. Is this all from the infection?

Thanks for writing to us.
The mild yeast infection is not likely to cause the severe contractions you were having. It is more likely to be related to preterm labor which needs treatment by your gynecologist. Swollen and sensitive labia are a normal finding during pregnancy due to decreased venous flow.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
