Is it normal to experience soreness around the bottom vagina/buttocks area from constipation while pregnant? I plan on discussing this with my doctor on Tuesday...but I've been constipated,which is normal but I have soreness in my vagina as well...a bit of swelling on the bottom near the buttocks too. Sort of like from the pressure of being constipated. Has anyone ever experienced this? I didn't with my last pregnancy.

  • Sounds like hemorrhoids, the swelling might be coming from your blood vessels getting bigger down there since during pregnancy your blood volume increases to about 50% and from the extra weight you now have pressing on them whenever you sit.
