    Hello

    I have a question thats kinda wierd to ask so bare with me :oops:

    Well since Sunday ive had swelling on my Vagina around the opening, and im just wondering if this is normal at this stage of pregnancy or if i should contact my doctor. If someone can let me know asap so i can stop worrying, it would be very appreciated.
    Thank you Katrina

    in all the book i have read it states it is common for your genitals to swell with the increased bloodflow during pregnancy - kind of like they can do when you are sexually aroused.

    maybe this could be the reason for your swelling or?

    if it hurts or is in worrying you i'd ring the MW or GP just to be on the safe side though! i've mentioned this site before on here, but i find this service http://www.midwivesonline.com/askamidwife.htm very helpful, they'll get back to you within a few days, so if you don't feel like asking your GP about a non-urgent issue they might be able to help?

    I read that it's normal for your genitalia to become engorged while pregnant - in fact, an early sign of pregnancy can be a change in colour of the genitalia to deep red or pink because of all the blood vessels down there - which is one reason why sexual response can be a little more immediate, or sometimes oversensitive and uncomfortable...
