thank u Rakhi Puri n asha chaudhry i hav my next checkup in a day or 2..wil inquire about it wit my gyneac

Dr. Payal M

Hey Nasreen. vaginal pain during pregnancy is quite normal ig unaccompanied by other symptoms. hormonal changes cause various tissues n joints to relax giving rise to all kinds of aches n pains. but any pain which is discomforting needs a checkup. ur gyn can reassure u as well as suggest some exercises or do's and dont's fr the pain. tc

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello nasreen...
During your third trimester, your body releases a hormone called relaxin in relatively high levels. The purpose of relaxin is to loosen the ligaments in your pelvis so the joints can separate slightly. This allows flexibility in the pelvis for your baby’s head to pass through during birth. The weight of your baby added to the effects of relaxin on your pelvic floor tends to cause those muscles to stretch and weaken, all of which contribute to feeling pelvic pressure during late pregnancy. Over the course of your pregnancy, your blood volume increases by about 50%. The increased blood flow can cause your vagina and labia to become swollen and feel tender. Your pelvic area can feel full and heavy.. these may help you- Lying on your left side to encourage your baby to adjust position, Sitting with your feet elevated to improve circulation, Resting with your hips elevated on cushions, Warm baths, Pelvic massage from a pregnancy trained practitioner, Wearing a pregnancy belt can help support the pelvis..
