  • Sounds like you could have a possible yeast infection. When I was pregant with my son I got that itchy feeling alot. My dr recommened using the regular Monistat 7 and use as directed.

  • i am 36 weeks pregnant and i was having the same issue after having sex with my husband till i found out that i was allergic to latex, so it may be some type of allergy, just tell your doctor about it and hopefully he/she will have an answer

  • Talk to the doc, many pregnant women get yeast infections as the hormones throw off their pH balance.

  • I agree, it most likely is a yeast infection, i got them also when i was pregnant, you want to talk to your doctor about it though, because i got an yeast infection at about this time in my pregnancy, and i didnt take care of it, and my son was born with yeast infection in his mouth, and he was in alot of pain it hurt for him to eat.
